Our only experience is in Canada and we used our credit card. I called the company before we left to let them know where we are traveling to so they would expect charges and not think someone stole our card. They gave me an 800 # for emergencies or problems. They charged a small exchange fee on the total purchases at the end of the month and it was very convenient for us.

I used my credit card when I had to pay for something and let the credit card company worry about the exchange. Everywhere I went, I could pay US so I used cash.
