If you run short of cash, can local banks help you? They seem to have lots of banks--at least from the days before the Euro when money changing at the bank was common.

In France, the banks don't seem to have money, even to make change. They sent me to a post office.

The French don't like credit cards. They prefer you use cash or a debit card. And don't expect them to make change. They usually ignore any change smaller than 10¢. I tried to pay for something with a bunch of change and the clerk refused to accept it.
