Apartment balance due on arrival: Order € before or no?

Jump to last reply

Our trip to Italy is getting ever closer! We're scheduled to arrive at FCO on a Sunday morning in May, and will (somehow) make our way to our apartment near Piazza Navona. We're renting through Sleep in Italy, so our deposit is already paid via PayPal. For our five-night stay, we'll owe €580 when we check into the apartment. Since we're flying straight to Rome from the States, we'll have to either take that cash with us or withdraw it from an airport ATM, I guess. My question is - what would you do in this situation?

Normally I'd never order euro before I leave; I know we'll get a better exchange rate at an Italian ATM. However, that's a big chunk of cash that we need immediately, so if anything goes wrong - the bank forgets we're gone and cuts off the card, our daily withdrawal limits aren't high enough - we're in a bad spot, jet lagged in a foreign country. So that's why I'm wondering if it would be a better idea in this one case to order them beforehand (not that I'm crazy about keeping up with that much cash either). For those of you who have done this, what would you recommend?

In case it helps, we're two unmarried women, so two separate accounts. I'm with Bank of America (I think my friend is with Regions?).
