Currency exchange

Jump to last reply

My daughter is leaving for a trip to Spain and France in about 10 days and I'm having a hard time figuring out where to exchange the money. Use my bank where they can't figure out how long it will take to get the euros. Should she do it at the airport when she lands? Find a bank and exchange it there? Everything I have been reading says use an ATM but I can't get her an ATM card for my account because she isn't 18. I was going to try a prepaid card but they have crazy fees and some can't be used internationally. HELP!
