You obviously haven’t been to Germany yet. :rofl::sweat_smile:


#22

Bhahaha I’m from a German city/ half of the family relocated in Germany so yeah. Kinda been there often (every month (Nuremberg & Frankfurt) :joy:

I just don’t speak German :rofl:

But japan takes that as state of art. Go and check :smiley:

i am currently in Tokyo.

7/11 ATM’s are free with no charge if you use MasterCard, but if you have a visa there is a 109yen fee from the ATM.
I have used the ATM at different hours of the day without issue.
There are a surprising amount of places that accepted my Revolut master card without issue.
You still need to carry cash for cafes and restaurants as not all accept card, but a lot more do these days.

I had 0 issues with my Revolut card in Tokyo, one thing you might want to do is enable the mag stripe as some shops use that, i was caught out when i was paying for my accomodation, but it was easy to enable it quickly on my phone.

I was in Japan in September. No issue with my revolut Master card.

I was able to pay and withdraw in the convinience store.


#26

In what stores did you do it? Family Mart, Seven Eleven or Lawson? Did you had any withdrawal ATM fees when getting cash?


#27

Check my posts in the Japan treads, in summary, no single issue paying with Revolut and some little fee at ATMs less than my bank. Also on the plus side - buying yen in advance with better rate than my bank :slight_smile:

Hello everybody,
I would like to know if I change euro in yen before withdraw, I have a limit of 200 euro equivalent after which I will have 2% fees?

And if I withdraw 300 euros, the 2% fees are applicated on 300 euros or on 100 euros (because we have 200 euros without 2% fees per month) ?

PS : I’m sorry for my english)

Thank you by advance.

Yes 200 limit equivalent before fees.

The 100 euros. First 200 are free.

Hi,

I believe that the Fee will be charged only to the € 100 that raised the most … In any case why not make two separate withdrawals (€ 200 + € 100)?

Japanese ATMs charge for withdrawals


#32

You sure? See this post:


#33

Visa costs 108円

In most other ATMs they also charge for both Visa and Mastercard.
