Best place/way to buy Euros in US?

Jump to last reply

Heading of to Italy in a week. Yes - I know I can just use the ATM when I arrive in Venice - but I am too risk averse for that. I need a couple hundred Euros in my pocket when I land.

What is the most cost effective way to buy Euro's in the US? I live in a major metro area (Washington DC).

Thanks for your input.
