I know the ATM topic has been beaten to death....BUT....what I have not seen is the answer to my question.
In both Amsterdam and Paris, I will have to pay for my apartment rental in cash upon checking in. Amsterdam is 3 nights, Paris is a week, so there is a sizable amount of cash involved. A typical US ATM machine only lets you withdraw $200 per day. Do European machines allow you to withdraw more at once?
If not, is it advisable to take traveler's checks to exchange larger quantities at a bank?
Thank you. This forum has been a treasure trove of information.
