Howto buy US dollars


Seeing as the dollar has just recently started to drop dramatically against the franc I was thinking of buying maybe 3-5 thousand dollars for a trip I am going to take to the states next summer.

Whats the best way to buy dollars now in order to spend later?

Should I get a US dollar account with UBS? And then transfer the funds from my CHF account? And how much would the US account cost?

Cheers for any help on this,
