I've got the same question. So far I've found that ATM cards with the VISA logo have a 1% fee plus whatever your bank charges and whatever the ATM you use charge.

Credit card purchases are no longer the deal they used to be. VISA again charges !% plus the issuing bank can charge an additional amount up to 3%. MBNA's American Express card I'm told has a 1% charge total.

I hope we get some answers from someone experienced with exchange rates. The hidden costs can really be costly.
