Leaving for Paris in a few weeks...SO EXCITED! First time there.
Would love advice on whether it is best to pay for things (restaurants, stores, taxis, etc.) in euros or to use my bank debit card or credit cards, or both. I know most credit cards charge a fee for foreign transactions. Also, this may sound a bit cliche, but do most establishments take American Express? I absolutely use it for everything here in the US, as I hardly carry money with me here.
Is it best to use ATM's to convert dollars to euros? Wondering how you handle the money/currency/paying for things situation. The easiest, safest, cheapest way.
Thanks so much!! I could not have planned this trip without you guys (and girls) on TA!!!!Edited: 22 June 2014, 22:03
