Graduating with my second Bachelor's (this one in Primary/Junior Education) in May. I'm working all summer which will net me about $3,000 to travel. I'm buying a flight August 20th to Amsterdam (cheapest ticket to get to Europe at $300) with little to no plans except countries I'd like to see. I have some money from my Grandmother that I'd also like to use.
What bank is the best for international travelers of Eastern Europe specifically? I will be investing in a Capital One credit card for no international ATM fees, but what base bank should I open a new account in for traveling? Suggestions? I currently have a Bank of America account (debit and visa card linked to that), as well as a savings account with my local bank. I am currently studying in Ontario, so I also currently have a ScotiaBank account since I am an international student.
