I will be renting an apartment in Paris and I was wondering what most people do for paying their security deposit? It is a large amount--1800 euros, and I will be paying the balance of the apt rent as well--900 euros). Do people typically bring it as US$ and change it at the airport? Or hunt around for a real bank to get a better conversion rate (inconvenient with bags and two kids?). Or bring it all from US as euros? I hear that you get the best conversion rate when you are in Europe withdrawing from an ATM, but I won't be able to withdraw such a large amount on my first day (bank limits). I planned on doing travelers checks (in case of theft) until I found out I would lose $300--American express has different rates when you buy/sell euros. I am assuming I will get the deposit back and have to cash them when I am back in the states. Any advice is appreciated!
Best way to pay for Paris apt security deposit?
