We always wait until our arrival at our destination airport to withdraw $$. The exchange for ATM's in Europe are commerical and our hometown bank does not charge us a fee. On our last trip to France (Feb/March) for instance, our only charges for ATM's were a $3.00 fee for each transaction from the withdrawl banks. Also, in Spain and usually nothing on the islands of Greece. Hope this helps. Susie Newton, MA
