I thought Czech used euros these days?Kiwi Flyer said:Some currencies are hard to get in this part of the world, may require a week or more advance booking of the exchange, and poor exchange rates. If you must get foreign cash then euros would be best bet, although this means 2 lots of currency changes.
Czech's use Crowns. They won't be part of the EMU until they are able to fulfill further financial requirments under the agreement.Mr_Gimlet said:I thought Czech used euros these days?
You're charged an overseas withdrawal fee, which is a mix of a fixed fee and sliding scale based on the amount. Look at your bank's website and it should have it under fees and charges. The exchange rate used is the interbank rate, which is as good as you're going to get without being a corporation.Tracy said:Thank you for the response. I will change money when I get there in amounts I am prepared to carry. I have only travelled in Asia and then it was American $ and some blackmarket exchange too
I will have to look at what charges may be incurred in withdrawing money from ATMS (noted they should be in bank foyers preferably). I wonder how charges at ATMs are incurred, are they just from my bank?
