Cash-ATM Question

I will be in Istanbul-Mykonos-SAntorini and Athens in August...how should I handle my cash situation??

I have Commerce Bank here in US and they don't have fees but will the ATMs in Greece charge rediculous fees everytime I take out cash?

Options? Thanks

hi luca

myself i always travel with a little cash ,

and use my visa card in hotels restaurants etc ,

i think atms charge 2% on cash withdrawls and your credit card company will also charge if international cash withdrawls ,

if u use your visa card then the shops are charged ,

hope this helps oioi

The only charges will be from your own bank and Visa/Mastercard. European banks don't charge for ATM withdrawals.
