to do is leave your cash home and go straight to an ATM machine.
Withdraw cash like you do back home.  

I travel a lot and this is what I always do. I've only had trouble once.

Note that I usually carry some US dollars as a backup. There's always some place to change cash at the airport in case the ATM machine there doesn't work with your card for some reason. Then you can find a more friendly ATM machine later.

I haven't been to Seville but in general in Spain public transportation is really good and you don't need to rely on more expensive taxis. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a bus from the airport to the city.


That's a good point.  Best guestimate I heard for cab from SVQ airport to hotel is 20 Euros.  But if someone can post alternative solutions, bus route # , where to get off, etc.  That'd be great.

Also, one other thing:  Phones.  If you need your phone, check if it takes a SIM card and you can get one in Europe.  Otherwise, like with arrrrggh Verizion that doesn't do SIMs or a lot of global phones, you can get a free global loaner phone.  Or you can just buy a cheap disposable phone in Europe for the week.

BTW, I just heard in the channel that unlike the rest of Europe, Spain *does* look kindly upon tips.  So TIP away!!!  :-)
