I was always told to use my Debit/ CC, as the exchange rate is the actual rate with nobody making a markup on the exchange.

Be careful with that some CC companies are charing a fee for that now.

I know that one of the many agreement updates I get from one of my cards spelled it out.

We found out a few weeks ago that the closer you get to the heart of Niagara falls, the lower the exchange rate. A mile or two away from the tourist area was a much better rate for the exchange going both ways.

Also, my wife got charged 2% on everything she used her debit card for by her bank, It's not just the credit cards that can bite you.

Look for a casino - they pay the best
US-CAN, but they exchange back to
US at the worst rate.

Worst case: hit a major international
back with your ATM card. You'll pay
a couple of bucks, but you'll get the
published rate.


Crap, the current exchange rate means
that lapdances this weekend will be
$8.23 per song.
