EURO Deposits

We are planning to rent an apartment in Paris for one (l) week. Must send a deposit in Euros. Any advice on most economical way to do this - check - money order - other?
We live close to big city if that makes a difference.

Given the charges for checks and wire transfers, the cheapest might be to get cash and send it registered mail.

Hi ferko,

Ask the apartment owner if you can send a check in dollars for 10% more than the required deposit.

Owner holds the check until you arrive.

Upon arrival, you get the required amount from an ATM(s), or you get the cash in the US and bring it with you.

Ira,

I assume you mean 10 percent more than the requested deposit AFTER conversion from euros to dollars.

Yes, dave.

There will be a fee for cashing a check in dollars.
