Keeping Your Currency Stra...

To start off, if you are new to foreign travel, the best place to change money is at an ATM machine in the country where you are traveling. But saying that, they are not always readily available, so I pay the extra fee and use the money exchange at the airport to change $100. That is generally enough to get me where I am going to where I can readily change currency. Check out the countries you are...
