When/How should we exchange funds?

Jump to last reply

Please try to give me tips that are applicable to our situation.

We have Wells Fargo checking account. They charge 3% on purchases and on ATM a $5 withdrawl fee without a 3% charge.

Should we:
1) Exchange money now for euros so we have them in hand while there. The Wells Fargo Currency Exchange Rate as of today is 1.4543 and there are no charges or fees associated with that.

OR:
2) ATM withdrawls. Does anyone know what rate that actually exchange at? Is it lower than the exchange rate mentioned above?

(We have a credit card that does not charge an international transaction fee; we plan to use this but our two week vacation is a lot more than its limit or a limit that we have. SO - thats why we want to know about exchanging money and/or using ATM)
