Where to exchange my money?

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Paris on Wednesday, for 7 days, and I was looking for some advice.

At my bank, the exchange rate today is 1.39 (for some reason, the woman gave me euors to dollars.) There is a $3 fee.

If I use my ATM internationally there is a $6 fee charged by my bank, plus a 3% exchange fee.

There is a Travelex Kisosk nearby, with a .67 (dollars to euros) exchange rate.

There is an Am Ex Travel Center in a neighboring town, but I haven't been able to get a hold of anyone to see what there rates are. Are they typically good?

I've heard using your ATM is the best bet, but it seems to be a wash in this situation. I'm sadly a bit overwhelmed by all these percentages and conversion rates, and just want to be sure to get the best rate.

Thanks everyone!!
