My questions are this:
1. Should I bring Euros with me from the States? If so, anybody have any good recommendations on where to get foreign currency here at best rate?
2. Are U.S. issued bank ATM cards really that reliable to use in Spain if I were to get in a pinch for money? I checked with my bank and they charge 1 percent fee per transaction?
3. If I wait to exchange US dollars until my arrival, where are the best places to exchange for Euros? I have read the cambios are not the best places. Does that leave just the banks?
Any other helpful information based on experience while traveling in Spain is much appreciated!
