Should I exchange money before I travel to Europe

Answered By: Eric James Date: created: Dec 24 2020

Avoid (or at least minimize) cash exchange.

In general, I avoid exchanging money in Europe; it’s a big rip-off. On average, at a bank you lose about 8 percent when you change dollars to euros or another foreign currency. A good rule of thumb: The difference between the buy and sell rates should be less than 10 percent.

Should I get euros before going to Paris

Answered By: Henry Clark Date: created: Dec 26 2020

Those of us who travel a great deal will tell you that it is a waste of time and very expensive to obtain euros before you arrive in France. Just use the airport ATM or your credit card upon arrival. Taxis (tell them in advance if you want to pay with credit card) and RER ticket machines accept credit card payments.

Is it better to exchange money in US or Europe

Answered By: Cyrus Lee Date: created: Nov 24 2020

In general, exchanging money in Europe is better than doing so in the U.S.; however, having a small amount of local currency in your wallet when you land at the airport makes sense.

and money.

  • The unit of currency in France is the euro, as in most other countries of the European Union.
  • Use a credit card, widely used for purchases in France, but only if it is a credit card with a computer chip in it (carte à puce).
  • The USA is making (belatedly) the transition to chip cards.

What is the best time to buy euros

Answered By: Diego Price Date: created: Oct 25 2021

There is no best time to buy Euros.

This is because currencies on the foreign exchange market are changing all the time in a way no one can predict, so the euro value that’s available one morning might not be available the next, or even an hour from then. This is just how the market works.

Is it cheaper to get euros in Europe

Answered By: Diego Mitchell Date: created: Jun 25 2021

The cheapest places to buy Euros abroad are usually banks. European banks will take foreign cash and change it to Euros using the most current exchange rate. Most banks do not charge a transaction fee for the service; if they do, it will usually be smaller than an ATM’s or a currency exchange’s.

Is it cheaper to use credit card or cash abroad

Answered By: Cyrus Flores Date: created: Jul 06 2021

Cards can be the cheapest way to pay for things and withdraw money from cash machines abroad, but only if you use the right one. Using your usual credit or debit card might result in expensive overseas fees, so you could save a lot by getting a special ‘travel-friendly’ credit, debit or prepaid card before you go.

How do I get the best exchange rate

Answered By: Alex James Date: created: Jun 17 2021

To get the best exchange rate, wait until you arrive at your destination. While most major airports feature a currency exchange desk, you are likely to get a better rate directly from an ATM machine affiliated with a major bank. ATM cards most likely to work trouble-free overseas are those with a four-digit PIN number.

How much cash should I carry in Paris

Answered By: Lawrence Baker Date: created: Nov 03 2020

400 euros should be sufficient. You don’t want to be stuck with a lot of euros at the end of your trip, and then have to exchange them at a bad rate. (Alternative: a stop at the airport gift shop.) You can use a credit card to pay for just about all the attractions you mention in your post.

Answered By: Zachary Richardson Date: created: Aug 20 2021

French ATMs accept chip-and-pin cards and cards with only a magnetic strip on the back. You can use any MasterCard (Cirrus and Maestro) or Visa (Plus) card. You’ll need to change your PIN if it’s longer, or you won’t be able to use it at ATMs.

No, no, no. The cheapest and most convenient way to obtain local currency is to use a Mastercard or Visa branded debit card at a bank owned ATM. Getting a hundred or so euro from you local bank prior to departure is a good practice but some will say just use an ATM at your arriving airport.

Do I need ID to buy euros with cash

Answered By: Rodrigo Scott Date: created: Jan 10 2021

Currency providers will need to confirm your identity before you can buy any currency, meaning you will need to provide a photo ID to purchase cash either online or in store. A valid form of ID should be government-issued, like your driver’s license or passport.
