    Beware of DCC in Europe

    When withdrawing cash in Thailand the ATM's have started doing the currency conversion up front and at a terrible rate. It defaults to the ATM doing the currency conversion but will ask if you would like to change it. Easy to miss though if you are not looking for it.
