Subject:  Best place to exhange currency for my trip? Date:  4/22/2019  11:10 PM

Going to London and then flying from there to France on the same day. Need a certain amount of cash as normally prefer that to using CC's. So need euros for dollars and certainly won't be exchanging at the airport. So before I go, wondered where would be the best place in the States to do this?

Was offered at today's rate around 1 Euro for coughing up 1.21 dollars. Its about 1.13. Can I do better elsewhere? Am also informed that certain debit or CC cards offer reasonable rates at ATM machines when in France, wondered which ones you would recommend and what to look out for as never used a debit card, let alone gone to any ATM machine. But to have some Euros with me to start with, where would you suggest I go to get them over here and any tips appreciated going forward. Thx.
