Need tips to avoid paying credit card fees while traveling in France

Jump to last reply

Hey fodorites - I just found out my credit card (Chase) charges a 3% fee against all transactions made outside the US.

Do any seasoned travelers have any tips on avoiding these fees? I will be traveling next weekend.

Looking for tips like 1) is there a particular US bank that has a network of affiliated ATMs in Europe where I could open an account and have easy access to $$ while abroad? 2) what are the pros and cons of using travelers checks? (it seems so last-century, but I suppose to avoid fees I'm willing to do anything!) 3) any other cards I should look at?

thanks guys!
