Pre-Trip Euros
« on: January 31, 2018, 07:32:43 PM »
I understand that the best way to buy Euros is at a bank ATM in Europe with a debit card that does not charge foreign transaction fees. However, I would nevertheless like to go with some Euros in my pocket for a taxi and to be sure that I have enough initially without regard to any ATM daily limits. Where is the best place to buy Euros in the New York area at the most favorable exchange rate and hopefully minimal fee?

Do not know about NY area, I always order from my bank BMO Harris , they have it ready for me in 48 hours, at very close to the forex price, not just Euros but basically any major currency, try your bank or a BMO Harris branch if they have them in your area.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

If you want, I'll be back in NY at the end of the week and can exchange a few hundred Euros for the going rate.

The banks in BP have horrible rates. like 10 cents per dollar off the market rate.

Thanks, but that wouldn't help me much

Have any other suggestion in the BP/Flatbush area?
