    The best currency exchange rate is by using an ATM.  There are always a few in the airports.

     

    Most, if not all, European ATMs require a 4 digit PIN.  I also use my Cap One ATM card as they don't charge me a fee for using non-Cap One ATMs.

     

    Not sure what other recommendations you are looking for but I have made a number of posts on Spain here on MRI.  Do a search and they should come up.

     

    Where are you going in Spain?

      That is what I had in mind thank you. We will be going to Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Gibraltar,  a time share on the beach, Valencia, and Barcelona. It is a long trip but we have learned to build in some rest day.

      Thanks

        NIce trip!

         

        Hope you are staying a night or two in Toledo.  It is well worth it.  I spent 3 nights and could have spent another night or two!  But, I also did a day trip to Consuegra from there.

         

        Are you going to Granada and one of the white towns?  Highly recommend Ronda for a night!

    I regularly take groups to Europe and I agree that ATM is the only way to go.  Despite my warnings, I sometimes have someone with us currency that expects to find a bank that A) is open, and B) wants anything at all to do with us notes.  And don't get me started with the people who still think travelers checks are a good bet.  As I'm sure you know, make sure you've notified your bank about travel dates and destinations, including transit countries.
