But increasingly across the world cash machine usage charges are being applied. Spain and the USA charge up to €5 and $5 respectively but it depends on the bank. In Spain a couple of weeks ago I saw that Santander was trying to charge me €5 so I walked away and used Caixa Bank.
So far all usage in France is free so Alan is OK.
But Allan I never bother with the exchange rate fluctuations. I take the view that you win some you lose some. I keep euros and dollars in my desk at home and on my card all the time. BUt because I use "touch and go" almost everywhere now and for very small amounts I find that I come home with almost as much hard cash as I started with. Do you find the same?
