If you plan to use credit cards, be aware of the exchange rate/conversion fees. There are cards that do not charge these fees.

Get a card that has a "chip". They are new to the US but not new to Europe.

Get familiar with each countries currency so that you feel comfortable using local money.

Use ATMs to get local money in addition to gathering some of it from a bank at home before you leave.
