This post explains some of the methods we've tried - including a couple that make cross-currency payments waaaaay cheaper.

We’re Mish and Rob, we’re married, and we’re having a go at “making it anywhere” – living in places around the world and making a living by doing work we love.
We like to consider ourselves “unadventurous adventurers”, “home-comforts-loving nomads” and “backpack-free travellers”. Basically, we’re wusses. But we’re fine with that. We want to live in nice, clean apartments (with air conditioning, wifi and decent mattresses), in nice, civilised cities (preferably ones where the residents like English people). We love trying new, exciting food, but we want to look up some reviews on Yelp first. And we love wandering around areas and going for (mini) treks, but we want Google Maps to definitely work on our phones before we set off.
