    Mars –

    Last time I was in Europe, I left the US with $100 in pounds and Euros (I was going to London and paris). That only got me so far. They have ATM’s everywhere so bring an ATM/debit card. Just make sure you have money in your checking account! Also, credit cards get great exchange rates, so if you can use it, i would!

    hope this helps
