We’re up-front about all fees. That’s just not always possible with other methods of currency exchange or other cards. And thanks to our clever simple app you know exactly where you stand at all times — balance, fees, the lot.

It really couldn’t be clearer.

You get to keep more of your money, you’re not at the mercy of invisible charges, and you’re not stuck with cash you can’t use.

FairFX is the low-risk option because…

You’re also covered against shocks on your statement when you get home. It’s all there, in real time, upfront.

Greek debt relief closer than ever but creditors must act, Greek

Greek debt relief ‘closer than ever’ but creditors must act, Greek prime minister says

ATHENS Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras kept up his demand for debt relief from international lenders on Tuesday, saying Athens was close to securing a solution to ease its debt mountain but that creditors must meet there commitments.

Greece wants to wrap up negotiations with the lenders — the European Union and International Monetary Find — on reforms and on debt relief this month.

It needs another tranche of bailout money, wants to qualify for inclusion in the European Central Bank’s bond-buying program, and seeks to return to bond markets immediately afterwards.

“We are closer than ever to a substantial solution on debt relief,” said Tsipras reiterating that Greece had already agreed to apply more austerity after its current bailout expires and it was its lenders’ turn to fulfill their promises of discussions about debt relief.

“Τhe ball is no longer in our court,” he told reporters referring to lenders’ statements on debt relief in past years.

Despite Greece’s recent statements and a bailout review agreement at staff level, sources close to the lenders have been less optimistic seeing talks on debt relief lasting longer than May.

This is because of sharp differences between the IMF and Germany, Europe’s paymaster, over the Greece’s fiscal targets. The former says Greece’s target and debt are unsustainable; the latter, with an election coming, is less willing to drop its hard line.

After six months of tense talks, Athens and the lenders reached a deal last week on a set of additional reforms the country needs to implement in 2019-20, two years after its current, 86-billion euro bailout program expires.

Greece wants euro zone finance ministers to approve the reforms’ deal at a scheduled Eurogroup meeting on May 22 — a key condition for unlocking vital loans — but also agree on a formula to make its debt sustainable in the medium-term and long term.

Debt sustainability is key for the European Central Bank and the Washington-based IMF, which participated financially in the country’s first two rescue packages, but has yet to announce whether it will join Greece’s current program, the third since 2010.

Greek lawmakers are expected to vote on the new austerity package by May 18, before euro zone finance ministers assess the country’s progress.

Tsipras, who is sagging in opinion polls and whose term expires in 2019, controls 153 lawmakers in the 300-seat parliament and he is expected to pass the bill.

But the delays in the negotiations have slowed projected economic growth and have exacerbated reform fatigue after seven years of austerity hurting the government’s popularity further.

Asked whether he was considering a cabinet reshuffle, Tsipras ruled it out.

“We are not considering it. Our aim now is to speed up work as much as we can,” he said during a visit at the education ministry, where he announced a planned education reform.

Money/ Debit card or prepaid euro travel card better?

San Diego 50,520 forum posts

#4 of 9

I don t really understand the last post??

You can ask your bank to raise your ATM limit while you travel.

You DO need to inform your ATM bank and your credit card companies that you will be in Europe BEFORE you go!!

There is no perfect way to do this.

YOUR banks charge fees for ATM withdrawals AND to buy euros from them.

You have to add up the fees and see which is better for you!

Capital One, and Schwab offer ATM cards and/or credit cards that have small or no fees. Some people order cards just for travel.

The pre loaded cards give poor exchange rates and charge fees to reload or to change the euros back to $$s. Any way you do it will cost money.

We just figure it as part of the cost of the vacation!

I just want to add that IF you have an account with Wells Fargo here in San Diego. they will charge the least to buy euros here in the USA.

I have compared their rates to the other pre loaded cards and for just that their rate is best BUT only if you have an account there.

Europe Travel Deals: With Euro Weakening, Americans Can Travel For Cheap

Europe Travel Deals: With Euro Weakening, Americans Can Travel For Cheap As Dollar Exchange Rate Drops

The dropping euro and a more valuable dollar mean that Americans can get more euros to spend on what’s most important: European beer. Reuters/Ints Kalnins

Seeing the Mona Lisa is a better deal now than it has been years. Americans and other foreigners can expect to land cheap trips to continental Europe over the next few months after the euro hit its lowest since March 2006 on Monday. That means Americans could get hundreds of more euros for their dollars than they did just a year ago, according to travel professionals.

“The euro is down about 10 percent to 15 percent from where it was most of 2014, so it’s an instant discount for those of us with U.S. dollars,” said Roger Wade, founder of Price of Travel. “Many analysts are expecting the euro to continue going lower, at least in the short term, and if Greece effectively votes itself out of the euro soon, it could drop even further.”

The euro-to-dollar exchange rate dipped 1.2 percent just on Monday. At its lowest, one euro was worth about $1.1864, but recovered slightly to $1.1944. The euro’s drop is a product of — among other factors — political instability in Greece, an increasingly strong American economy and the likelihood that the European Central Bank will take quantitative easing measures to boost the European economy, according to NPR .

The drop in the euro over the last year has already translated into real discounts for Americans converting their dollars, according to James Feess at the Savvy Backpacker, a site dedicated to budget travel in Europe. “An average hostel in Paris will cost about $38 night at the moment, but a few years ago it would cost about $48. That extra $10 can now be used for museum entry or a walking tour. Since most young people travel for a few weeks, that extra $10 per night really adds up,” Feess said.

The euro has generally been valued a good deal higher than the dollar  since it was introduced in 1999. For much of its existence, the euro was valued between $1.30 and a high just over $1.47. When the euro was worth around $1.37 at the beginning of 2014, $1,000 would convert over to €730, whereas now it would convert to €840. BNP Paribas, a big French bank, predicts  the euro will drop to $1.15 by the end of 2015.

A high exchange rate likely turned many young would-be-backpackers away from studying abroad or going on a cross-European trip in recent years, Feess said. But with more money in their pockets, travelers could now see more of Europe, including typically more pricey cities like Rome. Currencies outside of the euro zone have suffered, too, so travelers could get good deals across Europe, including in non-euro Britain, Norway and Sweden.

“Transportation adds up. A one-way Eurostar journey currently costs about $82-$105 but a few years ago that same ticket was around $105-$133. When you add up all these little costs it ends up being a large chunk of money for a multi-week trip,” he said, referring to the London-to-Paris train route under the English Channel.

The euro hovered near all-time lows as fireworks lit the sky over the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees in Paris on New Year’s Eve. Reuters/Christian Hartmann

Airfares aren’t expected to drop significantly, however, even though the price of oil fell by more than half over the last six months to just over $50 per barrel. Plane tickets are more dependent on supply and demand than on exchange rates. Many airlines are taking the opportunity to reinvest the billions of dollars saved on fuel to upgrade their services, according to the New York Times .

Dejan Bajic with Danny Travel, an agency that specializes in setting up trips for Europeans living in the U.S. who travel back to their home countries, said his business hasn’t been affected much by the currency rates, but he predicted an increase in interest in Europe among Americans seeking to travel cheaper.

“Anything you spend there, anything connected to euros like hotels, cars, trains, they will all be cheaper,” he said.

The pre loaded cards give poor exchange rates and charge fees to reload or to change the euros back to $$s. Any way you do it will cost money.

We just figure it as part of the cost of the vacation!

I just want to add that IF you have an account with Wells Fargo here in San Diego. they will charge the least to buy euros here in the USA.

I have compared their rates to the other pre loaded cards and for just that their rate is best BUT only if you have an account there.

Let’s Visit Oktoberfest and have Fun

It is still not too late to plan for the largest festival in the planet? the only disadvantage is, it will be difficult for you to find cheap accommodations in Munich area and its surroundings. Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival with over 6 million visitors, both locals and from around the globe.

I believed most of the reasons why so many people are going there is to experience the fun and entertainment during the duration of the celebration. More that, since it is a beer festival, tasting and drinking beers that are only brewed by the best breweries in Munich is also one of the reasons why many guests and tourists are flocking this event every year.

Of course, you must not miss the live bands in every beer tent. There are live musicians playing great musical instruments. If you understand what is bit depth. I know you will have fun listening to the live bands there. This is one thing I love everytime I visit a German festival.

If you are in Bavaria especially in Munich area, never miss the fun visiting the world’s largest festival. I guess, I am a lucky traveler visiting Oktoberfest many times. Cheers and be safe!
