Buying Euros in Germany with U.S. $'s, cheapest route?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I've got plans in place to take my Mom, Sister, Brother-in-Law and my Niece touring Germany next month. Most of the B&Bs that we will be staying at want to be paid in local currency (cash).

I've checked numerous banks here in the U.S. and they charge anywhere from 6-10% over the exchange rate to exchange my US$ to Euros. And my Credit Card provider has stated that if I use my credit card to withdraw Euros from ATM's I not only will incur a transaction fee but will also be charged interest at the Cash Advance rate (for all purchases on the card). Therefore, I have no plans to use my card to purchase Euros but will be using it for other transactions.

I do intend to bring $'s with me from the U.S. and exchange them for Euros at a bank (Deutche Bank?), can anyone tell me if this would be the cheapest option with regard to the best exchange rate?

Thanks, Jim
