The actual amount you pay per transaction depends on your contract with your bank but should be reasonable and the actual exchange is done on the paper money rate the banks use.

€19 is the lowest fare that's generally available for buses. Fares vary depending on the how full each bus is, so booking either four weeks or more in advance or online very close to departure is the best way to secure the cheapest price.

If it has to be simultaneously cheap and time-saving, it will be hard to beat the plane. You may consider a trip by bus. It takes roughly 10 hours and is probably cheaper than the plane if you plan on a short notice. See e.g. here: https://www.busradar.com/ 10 hours is also the duration of a day-time train, via Berlin. There are combined train/bus routes, ...
