I've had them using BoA and Chase.It was helpful because Chase Sapphire gave me the "Visa" sight to log into to get a daily rate of exchange on my charges.The ATMs at La Banque Postale (MY bank) in France don't offer any advantages over any other bank.If you use an ATM associated with a bank, it is your bank, not the French ATM that determines the rate provided you do not fall for the Dynamic Currency Conversion.To reiterate, it's your US bank that foists charges on you, not any bank in France, which charges nothing for an ATM withdrawal.Your own bank may well apply a more favourable conversion rate than other types of bureau de change.Jan 10th, 2017, 06:23 PM # 2 nukesafe, join Date: Jun 2004, posts: 4,773.Thank you in advance.They may well take no fixed commission, agence de rencontre sexe but may use a very unfavourable conversion rate.I am looking to find out what are the best ATM Vendor / Bank exchange rates in France.Jan 10th, 2017, 10:17 PM # 12 greg Join Date: Jan 2003 Posts: 5,682 I think you are going down an unproductive path.But it was the only ATM I saw after we got through security.What US banks charge - most but not all of them - is a per-transaction fee, a few bucks, which doesn't add up to very much, unless you take out silly small amounts all the time.In this case, you can arrange to have money delivered to an agency (such as a specific post office) in France, and pick up the money in cash.Does anyone have any experience with ATM exchange rate in France?
All of the bank-owned ATMs will give you the same rate.
You can also exchange foreign cash - US dollars or other major world currencies - in virtually any French bank.
As is the custom throughout Europe, prices displayed in shops in France always include sales tax la TVA" - value added tax).
