I went to the bank and the rate they gave was. Where do you guys usually get your foreign cash? Airport? Bank? Foreign country?
Yeah don't use the airport/train station spots for large amounts. The rates are usually horrible.Originally Posted by illphillip
When I went to Amsterdam, I got a small amount at the airport when I landed, then a larger amount at a currency exchange in the city.
I've withdrawn from a foreign ATM before. You just need to make sure your card is affiliated. The back of your credit/debit card should let you know which ones to look for. My Wells Fargo cards work with STAR and Plus affiliate ATMs.Originally Posted by JPioneer
This got me thinking. What if you just get it from the ATM? I know there's a certain fee but does it increase when you withdraw more?
Im in DR right now the best place I have seen is the bus station Caribe Tours the exchange rate was like 36 everywhere else it was only 34Originally Posted by rocman23
