Do I Need To Buy Foreign Currency Before I Leave For My Trip To Europe ?

Using foreign currency purchased before you leave will mean you will have cash in hand for immediate expenses when you arrive such as taxis, trains, meals, tips etc. When you arrive at your destination the last thing you will want to do is deal with the hassle of standing on a long line to exchange currency at the airport.
