How do i get the best exchange rates in Paris?

Now i live in London. I am going to Paris on Wednesday this week and stay for 2 weeks. However i haven't not exchange my travel money yet. I was told i can get better exchange rate if i do money exchange in Paris. Do anyone know which money exchange agent provides the best rate in Pairs and where are them?

Normally you get the best exchange rates by using ATMs, not cash.

another recommendation to just withdraw funds from ATM machine after you arrive, which will give the best rate. Also good to use credit card wherever possible, and just withdraw cash as needed.

(never a good idea to travel with large sums of cash in any currency)

Many of the bank ATMs are on a street, on the wall of a bank.

I normally prefer the ATM machines inside a bank to the ones out on the street, whichever city I'm in (not just Paris), if that option is available. But I'll use an outside ATM that is part of a bank if the bank is not open. Just be aware of your surroundings and do not let strangers "help" you or stand close enough to see your PIN number. ATM machines generally allow you to select English as the language of your transaction if you are not comfortable using French.

When I said do not use one of those money places along the street I was referring to those like along rue Rivoli. and several other tourist trap streets. I feel you were somewhat off base in your remark.
