I am planning on making a first deposit on partypoker to play tournaments. I live in the Netherlands, where the euro is used. Depositing and withdrawing from euro to dollar and back costs me a total of 6%.

I have read old posts and some suggested me to use paypal or skrill, while others suggested I simply change my main currency on partypoker to euro and then when buying into tournaments the euros are converted to dollars with a fair exchange rate. I am not sure if this is correct, though. Has anyone got any experience with this lately? Or anyone who got a good idea?

Only Make deposits when exchange rates are favourable, I think its laughable at the moment that most sites use dollar as a base currency.

This would have made sense when the sites were primarily US based, however seeing as most of the market is not currently, I feel it would make more sense to use EUR.

edit this is not a plug, as I am just a fan of their service, but revolut, offer wholesale exchange rates - so you could essentially deposit in whatever currency you like https://revolut.com/
