The airport is the worst place to get money because of fees and lousy exchange rates. I get $100 or so converted here first, then get money out of ATMs when I'm in Europe, Japan, wherever. If you are in a large city, it's easy to find a bank who will get you Euros here. If you live in the boonies like I do, you have to go to AAA, and the rate sucks. I just don't like going to another country without any local currency.
