ATM help. Geneva Airport, French Sector. France

Jump to last reply

I hate accounting and the research on this is very spotty.

I may need to acquire about a 1000 Euros on the day I arrive at Geneva Airport for my trip to Annecy, if that's even possible. I've never been to GVA. I have some questions about securing Euros.

1. I'm renting a car in the French Sector. Any recent travelers know if there is an ATM in the French Sector? Does it dispense Euros as any other ATM in France would?

2. If I had to use an ATM on the Swiss side, it seems some machines may dispense Euro but after it converts from Swiss Francs. How might the cost of securing Euros this way compare to the cost of purchasing Euros in the U.S. before I depart?

Because of terrorism, Capital One's policy has changed. They will no longer do a traveler increase on the daily withdrawal amount. I think the cap is now $600 per day. I may try to make arrangements to get cash in 2-3 days, but that may not meet the approval of the apartment owner.

3. Does anyone know what the standard withdrawal caps are in GVA ATMs and France's ATMs?

Thank you in advance.
