Best way to deal with large, cash-only lodging bill - Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

We will be staying in a place in Amsterdam for about a week in Sept. When I made the reservation, they specified payment must be "cash only." That will be a fair chunk of money, more than I'm likely to be able to withdraw at an ATM, and more than I would normally carry around for more than about 20 min., let alone the 2 weeks we'll have been on the road before staying there.

How do people usually/best deal with this situation, now that travelers' cheques are scarcely known, used, or accepted?

(tagging Netherlands, but wonder if it's not an issue elsewhere in Europe sometimes).
