How to change money
Here are the best ways to get the different currencies for your trip:
Exchange money into the local currency before you arrive in each country.
Withdraw local currency from ATMs (cash machines) once you arrive. There are almost always ATMs at main train stations.
Don't carry too much money with you. Keep your cash in a money belt with your debit/credit cards. It's also a good idea to keep your cards in separate places. That way if one is lost or stolen, you still have a back-up!
