I too think the OP should do a one time ATM withdrawal of the max. amount that he can or that he will need and then pay cash for everything.

Well then I will just bring dollars as I was originally planning.

I considered the card but it is just too expensive.

Its generally not a good idea to carry around a large amount of cash.

Most ATM will let you draw $400USD at a time (per day UK Day time/date stamp ) . ($2-3USD ATM bank transaction fee + your banks fees).

I think you said you were planning to use $1000 or so, 3 trip to the ATM would be able to get you the cash you need, I would not carry more then $100 around at a time Leave it hidden in your (Somewhere deep in some side pocket of your suitcase in your Hotel room, or Hotel room safe.)
