Need cash in Florence, Italy, or Paris, France? ATMs are available almost anywhere and probably the cheapest and most convenient way to get cash in the local currency.
Keep in mind, each cash withdrawal will usually be subject to currency conversion fees, foreign ATM fees, or other charges your bank may have. If the ATM card from your bank isn't connected to Cirrus or PLUS networks, you may be paying even higher fees.
Remember to call your bank to let them know ahead of time you may be using your ATM card elsewhere. It's not a good idea to find your account is frozen because they didn't know you were going to South America!
