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 cash around with you and keep it in a money belt along with your debit/credit cards. If you have two cards, it's a good idea to keep them in separate places, so if one gets stolen you've still got the other one!
