I’m going to: London, England Paris, France Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland Pisa, Italy Florence, Italy Rome, Italy Verona, Italy Venice, Italy Tyrol, Austria Rhine Valley, Germany Amsterdam, Netherlands I don’t want to be carrying hundreds of dollars (UK Pound, Swiss Franc and Euros). If there is a cost to use a method, please say how much (approx. ). And so today I found out that… You can go to your bank and get travelor’s checks. And you can use atms, as someone else said. There will be a fee for international withdrawal – check with your bank. When I was in ireland and egypt it was a percentage of how much you took out like 2% or something. Also, make sure to call your bank and tell them which countries you will be visiting and when so that way they won’t freeze your account thinking it was stolen. Don’t exchange too much money at one time or you will be left with foreighn currency before you leave that country and will have to pay a fee to get it changed into dollars again. Many places, especially in europe, will let you use your credit card/debit card – when you’ve let your bank know. enjoy your trip
Short trip to Tyrol Austria I was glad to find any snow hiking up the mountains, but believe me, I sure had any sore muscles afterwards. . Outch.
