Cash and ATM tips? Fees? Traveler checks? Need advice.

Jump to last reply

We are headed to Italy (Venice and Rome) over the holidays. Am reading so many different opinions on the above. Additionally, what banks have ATM's there? Should we open an account with them in the US? We have Bank of America which is NOT there.

I don't read much about travelers checks, which my husband wants to use. Seems now it is more getting cash at ATM oriented.

Which banks have lower fees and better money exchange rates? (seems Capitol One and Chase get mentioned).

I know we will need to pay off our apt in Rome in cash. I think Venice takes credit cards.

Just looking for SMART ways to deal with all this from those with more recent experience. How best to NOT get ripped off with any more fees than I have to!

Many thanks!
