Be careful with the banks. The $20-45 charge is only a small percent of what some of them make off of you. BofA often added 4% to the exchange rate. I have found that using a specialized currency service (advertised on leading currency converter websites) you get much better rates, and it is worth the trouble for larger transfers.
