While in France last year I depended completely on my ATM/check card for money. It was far easier to get cash for the country, and I didn't have to carry paper around, of course I kept my card on my money belt inside my clothing, but had no problem in finding locations to use the ATM card. It was also a way I could email home and have my daughter transfer money into my checking account, thus insuring only so much could be taken out of my account.
When paying for food or items I did not use the ATM card but rather my Visa or Master Card. This way I had a record of the actual cost in American money.
