Must Pay For Paris Apt. Rental in Euros - Need Advice

Jump to last reply

Hi - I'll be traveling to Paris soon and will be renting an apartment. Problem is, I need to pay in euros or travelers checks (also in euros) when I arrive (1400 euros)

My question: Should I cash in my dollars here in the U.S.? I'm concerned about the exchange rates, fees, etc. if I do it here in the U.S. Many people say it's a no-no.

I'm wondering if my bank can increase the cash limit withdrawn in a day - it would be much easier to take the euros out at the atm in Paris. Anyone had luck doing this?

Don't think I've ever purchased travelers checks, but assuming there are fees as well.

Any advice appreciated!
