How much money to budget for traveling to IRAN?

One of the most difficult things about independent travel to Iran is how much money to budget for some weeks of travel. Iran is not connected to the western banking system. This means, although there are plenty of ATM’s and banks across the country, you cannot withdraw cash with your debit or credit card. You can put your card in the machine but it will give you the message they cannot make a connection with the bank. Therefore you need to put all your travel money for Iran in your IRAN Travel Card. As a result, you need to calculate how much to bring, because you do not want to be stranded for money!
