Where to obtain euros late afternoon on Friday the 13th?

Hello TA,

We arrive at MRS at 4:45pm on 7/13 and by the time we clear immigration it will be past 5pm. Does anyone have any idea where we can exchange dollars into euros at a decent rate either at the Marseille airport or outside the airport?

The next day is Bastille day and banks will be closed and the following day is Sunday.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Pretty much any ATM with your bank card.

Do not change dollars into euros. You get a much better rate by using a debit card to get money from an ATM.

Make sure you advise your bank that you are going to be in France. The ATMs will have instructions in English but if you normally use just the one card as both a CC and an ATM card, be aware that you will not be offered a choice of account from which to withdraw, so make sure you have a dedicated ATM card or you may be taking out expensive cash advances.
