  9:38 AM — England Exchange?
So in August T$ and I are going to London, and I'm trying to figure out what's easiest/cheapest/best for having money there. I've read that ATMs provide the best exchange rate, but I think Bank America charges an ATM fee--at least Fleece used to, of $5. Exchanging cash either here or there could either have a poor exchange rate, or have commission fees. Ditto if we got traveller's checks (which also cost money) and then exchanged them. I guess a bunch of purchases could be done straight on my credit card, which wouldn't have any extra fee, and probably would have a good rate, but that always takes longer. I've also heard that I need my ATM card to have only a 4-digit PIN. Man, Paris seemed so much easier...
