"ATM - Cheat Sheet" Spain Favorite Tip by irvbur

Spain General: 551 reviews and 477 photos

Fondest memory: Although ATM machines are to be found all over, the transaction is always in local currency. BE PREPARED. For example, do not go up to an ATM and think you'd like to withdraw $500 worth of local currency. You first must know the amount in local currency that $500 will buy. I always carry a currency cheat sheet when travelling. In addition to ATM transactions, it's also easier to bargain and make purchases.
