    Hi,

    I'll be going to vegas in 3 weeks and was wondering how good the exchange rate for euro -> dollar is currently. I would prefer to expose as little cash as possible to the flips and backflips the euro vs dollar is doing. Would anyone currently in vegas mind asking a cage how the exchange rate currently is so that I can compare ?

    Any other tips on saving as much money as possible on exchanging is welcome too :)

    Thanks in advance,

    Remco

    If your staying at a property that has a casino, you could call their direct number and speak to the head cashier personally. She might have better suggestions of her own. You would also be hearing things first hand. There might be a way of drawing markers and the adjustment made at the end of your stay. Perhaps they can wire back any unused portion of your funds with out an actual exchange rate being applied. If the amount of dollars involved is minimal, convert with your local bank before you leave. Unless it is a large amount, is it really worth all the concern?

    This.....seems a PITA tovcarry Euros all that way just to back and forth it
    the house edge is bad enough w/o adding arbitrage into the mix

    Well, first you have to deal with their transaction fees.

    $2,300 from a UK debit card cost me $100 in fees last year. Similar the years before.

    However, it's not all bad news. I needed cash and it was cheaper to do that than keep getting cash out from an ATM and paying foreign fees.
