Debit Card vs Cash in France

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I've tried searching on this topic but can't find many specifics. I have a Bank of America debit card that I will be bringing to France, and am wondering is it cheaper to make large purchases with a debit card directly or cash from an ATM (BofA offers no ATM fees if taken from BNP Paribas ATM)

Ex. If I want to buy something for $2000 at x place, should I pay with my debit card or cash?

Thanks
