I am not too concerned about carrying US cash for spending while in Paris. Is there a problem paying shop-keepers in US dollars??
or.. can I go to a bank while in Paris and trade US bills for euros or is there an additional charge there too?
I have mostly charged while in Europe in the past but dislike the added percentage that I am charged... so I thought I would just carry some smaller US bills and try to rely on those mainly.
or.. can I put in a US $100 in ATM "over there" and get Euros in change... without a fee??
Your thoughts and advice????
