Hey! Do you know if I have euro on my Revolut account and I want to withdraw it on an OTP Euro ATM, is there gonna be a fee? Thanks

Others on a hungarian forum have done it before, it has no fee.

You can withdraw EUR form OTP (EUR ATM) for free.
I’ve found only one EUR ATM in Budapest, an OTP EUR ATM at Deák Ferenc utca.

In Hungary all the ATMs, that belongs to a Bank, they don’t charge any fee.
Euronet is not a bank in Hungary.

Most banks: OTP, ERSTE, CIB, Budapest Bank (BB), MKB, K&H

I live in Budapest and use Revolut card.

Hungary has banned entry to all foreigners and tourists since Mid March 2020,even I who have a house and home for 22 years, so don’t expect much usage of Revolut in the coming months.

So let me get this straight - you’re saying that HU has banned people who have permanent residency there?

I thought only China had done this. I certainly haven’t heard of any EEA country doing that.

Could you provide a source for this? The V4 countries tend to copy each other when it comes to border policies and I’m pretty certain that this doesn’t apply to CZ or SK, and 100% certain it’s not true for PL.

He was saying this related to Covid. @Pangolin
Nothing to worry about, same procedure as other countries, so don’t take it serious lol :slight_smile:

I don’t think EEA countries have banned people who have residency in the country from entering though? Just tourists and foreigners. He has a house and has had one for 22 years and presumably has right of stay in Hungary?

Some have, if it’s not permanent and only place of residence. Mallorca and Belgium for example.

just check official government sites. I am habitual resident but never bothered getting Hungarian Residents card as I’m a EU citizen.

Poster clearly said he/she has no PR card, so legally he/she does not qualify as a permanent resident.
The government in this country certainly has done a good couple of outrageous things in recent months but this is not among them. What happened to the poster is unfortunate but maybe excusable in light of the worldwide emergency.

is there a limit how much you can withdraw from the card in one transaction.
If anyone reads this, How can I create a new topic in Revolut community.

Hey everyone!!

I have a Revolut account with both HUF and EUR. I went a couple of hours ago to widraw money for my rent, thinking I was not going to be charged any transaction fee from widrawing in HUF but apparently I was.

I could have swear I was never before but I can be wrong.
Could someone give me an idea about this? I used one of those blue atms, since I thought I might be charged if I used one from my current bank.


You haven’t said from which bank, but it sounds like you are describing a Euronet ATM, which have their own rules and should be avoided like the plague. €4 for a withdrawal AND a terrible exchange rate, AND a really confusing set of questions designed to get you to use their own exchange rate.

Euronet actually pay shopowners to install ATMs (here in the UK it’s usually the other way round), but also bribe airports to have solely their ATMs (Krakow is one example, Rejkjavik another) and no-one else’s.

Hello to everybody.
I have convert euros to huf and I would like to withdraw some of them in a atm. Is there some bank that doesn’t charge for exchange rates?
Thanks in advance

Hola!! Voy a viajar a Budapest en las próximas semanas y tengo varias dudas sobre la tarjeta Revolut:

1ª- Me ha quedado claro que si pago con la tarjeta Revolut en un comercio de allí durante EL FIN DE SEMANA me van a cobrar una comisión del 1%. Mi duda es, y si saco florines de un cajero de allí durante EL FIN DE SEMANA con la tarjeta Revolut, ¿también me cobrarán esta comisión o solo es al pagar con la tarjeta Revolut en un comercio?

2ª ¿Cuándo se considera que empieza el FIN DE SEMANA y cuándo termina?

3ª He leído en algunos sitios, que los cajeros de allí te pueden cobrar una comisión por “CONVERSION” y que hay que darle a que no quieres la conversión… pero y eso exactamente, ¿cómo y cuándo te lo pregunta el cajero?

4ª También he leído que aconsejan que cuando vayas a pagar en un comercio, con la tarjeta, en el TPV pongas o le digas al comerciante que quieres pagar en moneda local (florines), y tengo la misma duda: ¿cómo y cuándo le tengo que dar esa instrucción?

5ª ¿Qué cajeros/bancos no me cobran la comisión SURCHARGE FEE cuando saque dinero?, ¿hay alguna lista?, ¿cómo sé yo que un cajero me está cobrando esa comisión cuando esté sacando dinero? ¿me avisa el cajero para poder cancelar la operación?

Esas son todas mis dudas. Disculpad si son muy tontas pero estoy muy verde en estos temas. Muchas gracias de antemano a los que se tomen un ratillo para contestarme. Un saludo!!

Muchas gracias por tu ayuda @Graham_Lees !! Me gustaría, si pudiera ser, poder abrir un tema nuevo con el primer mensaje que tú me tradujiste el otro día. Me voy a Budapest dentro de muy poco y necesito que ese mensaje lo lean más personas a ver si me pueden resolver las dudas que escribí. Además parece que este hilo está un poco abandonado y hace bastante tiempo que no contesta nadie. Entonces si me haces el favor de abrir un tema nuevo con esas preguntas que puse aquí te lo agradecería mucho porque tengo bastante urgencia :slight_smile:
