Subject: Re: High cost of Euros at US bank
Bonjour Ziners,

This subject has been discussed much in the past, but it can be such a costly mistake that it is worth repeating.

Most US banks charge very high fees to convert dollars to Euros. Even when using their ATM cards the fees can be very high. I found a credit union that charges no conversion fee when I withdraw Euros in Europe.

I do not know what foreign banks charge. Perhaps some non USA members can comment on what they are charged to change their home currency to Euros.
