Probably my best travel tip for those of us traveling outside the borders of our own country is to check on potential fees assessed by different credit card companies regarding how they handle exchange rates. It's defintely worth shopping around for. Personally, I've been generally happy with American Express, but if you find yourself 'needing' something somewhere that doesn't accept American Express it's well worth your time to check on your Visa/MasterCard/other? issuers' policies with respect to exchange rates...BEFORE you go. Some are handled differently (or more expensively) than others. Also, in Paris I've noticed a pretty great 'bargain' on ribeye steaks in the brasseries...actually affordable! report a problem
