Whenever we have seen AAA sell Euros or Euro travelers checks it generates a nice profit for AAA. The reality is that you will get a much better rate of exchange if you get your Euros in Europe and generally the best rates will come from ATMs as long as your own bank does not charge some outrageous transaction fee. One reason we moved our banking to a credit union was that they do not charge silly fees (ours charges nothing for foreign ATM transactions).
