I recently visited Frankfurt for a week and was lucky enough to have in my possession:
a) A credit card with no foreign transaction fees
b) A debit card from a credit union that allows free global ATM withdrawals
My financial needs were therefore very well taken care of for the duration of the trip, but at the conclusion I was faced with a bit of a difficulty- I had no way to convert my remaining Euros back into USD.
The withdrawal of money from an ATM was absolutely painless (and considerably cheaper than the horrid rates provided by airport exchange bureaus,) but my credit union informed me that I would not be able to make deposits in a foreign currency.
Does anyone have any experience in converting EUR to USD in an efficient and affordable fashion?
As a French national, I also have an account with Société Générale; could this be of any use?
