I was afraid the fee would be ridiculous, but if it's not that bad, I suppose I'll give it a shot considering most of my other options seem crappy. Thanks!
That is your best bet... You are going to get your best rates through ATM/Debit/Credit Cards usually there was no fee's from their atm's. (Or if there was it showed up in my amount withdrawed) I only got charged by my bank for accessing my account from an outside network which it was like a $1.50 each time i got money out...The rates are the best you can get through these networks I usually beat outside vendors by atleast a nickel not counting their fee for exchanging money.
I will also say someone said to take travelers checks....DON'T too much of a hassle...Credit/Debit FTW
