The Best Way to Transfer USD From Abroad: Your Debit Card
Losing money due to exchanging the weak dollar (USD) is bad enough, but adding on transfer fees makes it worse. However, I’ve discovered the cheapest way to transfer money is by using your American debit card at any ATM in Europe.
I’m not moving to Malta, but hopefully, will be visiting as a tourist with my daughter to meet family for the first time, and I’d like to get an idea of how much things cost, i.e., a cup of coffee, soft drink, dinner, movie, tourist places etc., to see if I’ll have enough money. I’ve surfed the web and can’t find anything.
I’m budgeting 300 Euros for the day, 150 Euros each – do you think this will be enough?
Even if the daily amount you quote includes 5 star hotel accommodation you will be ok !
Just check out other parts of this website for costs of meals and drinks.
If you have that budget , don't worry, you won't have to count your pennies. You'll have a great time in Malta.
