Don't get foreign cash on credit!
Don't use your credit card to withdraw cash while you're abroad - you'll pay interest on it from the day you take it out, even if you settle the amount in full at your next credit card statement.
Consider getting a prepaid debit card that you can load with currency before you go and also think about getting a specific credit card to use abroad for purchases, one that has no transaction charges.
