Currency-exchange machines

currency-exchange machineIn airports, railroad stations, and other tourist gathering places, you'll often find machines that let you exchange foreign banknotes for local cash. These typically accept major Western European currencies along with U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, and Japanese yen.

You'll pay a premium for the convenience of these machines (since the exchange rate isn't very good), but they're a handy way to unload cash from the last country you visited or to get a small amount of money in a country that you're passing through.
