    is this sentence correct?

    Hi eveybody.

    If I've got to go for a trip and I need to bring some money with me, do I have to say:

    "I have got to bring some money along with me for the trip" or "I have got to bring some money for the trip".

    And what about the question I could receive?

    "Did you bring any money along with you for the trip?" or "Did you bring any money for the trip?"

    Should I have used the present perfect tense instead of the past tense?

    "Have you brought any money along with you for the trip?" or " Have you brought any money for the trip?"

    Re: is this sentence correct?

    All sentences seem fine,
    I would say: "I have to bring some money along with me on the trip."

    "Bring it along for sounds like: "I have to bring it when I am going to the place where I will leave for the trip."

    The choice between the simple past and the past perfect is one of style, it jus depends on how you want to ask the question.

    "did you do it?"/ "have yo done it?"

    Technically, "have you done it" would be better here, since you must bring the money before you go on the trip. "Have you brought it (so you can go)?"

    If you had returned from the trip you could ask. "(Yesterday, when you went on your trip) did you bring money?"
