Aug/Sept (2017)
I am currently planning on using my Revolut or Chase debit card for most of my spending, however I always like to have a few Euros as a back up!

Looking at the current rates, if pre booked & collected, they are lower than the exchange rates offered by the cards mentioned!

I would be interested in hearing what rate most people are currently getting from some of the Spanish cash machines?
 
2024 Camino Guides
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
The *most* expensive way to get cash is via a credit card! Most credit cards have huge fees and charge interest immediately for cash.

Use a bank ATM card.

Assuming you a from USA, the USD/EUR
rate is at parity so you have never had it so good. Well not for a hell of a long time. So enjoy it. Get the right ‘feeless’ ATM card and you are home and dry!

Although in theory the Spanish inflation rate will ‘eat’ a lot of this up!
