Opening an account to hold travel money while on vacation in Europe.

Jump to last reply

I'm a U.S. and Italian citizen that resides in South America and am planning a two to three month trip through Europe. I plan on taking under $10,000 to expense my trip. Obviously I can't keep in in my wallet nor suitcase during my trip. Even though I'm an Italian citizen but not resident would it be possible for me to open a bank account in Europe to deposit my travel money and use a debit card to withdraw what I need? I can't deposit it in my local Argentinean account and withdraw money with an ATM card in Europe since a new law was passed that won't allow me to withdraw any funds outside of Argentina. I can use my Argentinean debit card (don't have a credit card), but not withdraw cash in foreign countries in their currency. I certainly don't want to put my travel money in an Argentinean account because everything is too controlled here and the banks are untrustworthy. I thought about depositing it into a U.S. account and using a debit card to be able to withdraw cash in Europe but I'm not sure if I would have to claim it on my taxes even though it's under $10,000 and it's unearned income.
