We are 7 days and counting before our first trip to One Happy Island. I've read in previous posts about the international surcharge fees some credit card companies charge. Thus, I called American Express to find out if I'd be charged anything for using the card in Aruba. Their answer was...
Anytime they have to convert money, we will be charged 2.7%. So, if I'm charged in US dollars, there is no fee.
What has everyone's experience been? I've read that prices are posted mostly in US dollars with the exception of the supermarkets, but are they charged to your account as such? I just don't want to look like this when I receive my credit card statement.
Also, how much cash should we bring for a 10 day stay? We will be eating in our condo mostly and already rented a car.
