ATM in Spain


#1

Hi,

I was in Spain for the last one week. I tried using different ATM’s and I was very confused because as I remember ATM’s in revolut should be free. Most of the ATM’s in Spain add some fee to withdraw transaction for example 5 Euro. I tried finding free atm’s, but I think it was impossible. I’ve checked bbv santander caixa bank and all add some fee to withdraw. Please be careful :slight_smile:

Just to be sure- have you cancelled DCC offer?

Unfortunately this is a know “scam” in several EUR south/west countries…

The ATM detects that your card is in GBP ( UK issued card ) and it proposes 2 solutions :
- Bill GBP from your account with their “preferential” ( = shitty ) FX rate.
- If you refuse, the ATM will bill EUR from your account, but it will charge a fixed fees, ie 5€

Sometimes it’s not very clearly indicated…

I know this- I have experienced it on my own and have described it on this forum (with pictures).
Unfortunately this fee will be counted in both cases (DCC on and off)
In Poland it is 13 PLN.
Fortunately it works like this only in case of MasterCard
