Chile Atm's with no fees?

Hi to all
in January i will be in Chile for some weeks
i would like to know if someone knows to tell me if there is a fees using Revolut to withdraw money from Atm.

Hi!

I’m in Chile right now. The following ATMs don’t charge fees:

  • Corpbanca
  • Itaú
  • Security

Mind that there is a 200k CLP limit per withdrawal in Chile.

One other very important thing, Revolut’s card DOES NOT work in most places for purchases, only in those with contactless terminals (and you have to actually pay contactless). Please take another card with you for payments or you are going to have problems.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks my friend
Did you know what rate they give you this banks?

The rate is determined by the card, not the ATM. If you are offered a particular exchange rate, it’s usually better to say no and just make the transaction in the local currency.

If you do and use Revolut’s card, you’ll get the interbank rate for the first £200 or £500, then a 2% markup.

Enjoy Chile! I’m in Viña del Mar and the weather is awesome. Very bad fire yesterday though.

Thank you my friend
i will be the next week in Quillota close to Con Con i cant wait for the Chilean summer.
Feliz año nuevo

do not drink all the pisco

On December 10th, Itaú and CorpBanca are charging a fee of 5.000$ pesos.

I will check Security tomorrow and also Banco International, does anyone know about more options?

I didn’t find any single ATM that wouldn’t charge you at least 4.000 pesos for a withdrawal, usually 5.000. Shitty currency, shitty conditions.

Banco Internacional charges no withdrawal fees. You can find an ATM very close to Cerro Santa Lucía in Santiago. Tested with another card.

Also, Banco BICE in Concepción doesn’t charge withdrawal fees. Tested with Revolut card.

No withdrawal fee from Scotiabank. Choose checking account.

To pay for services in stores always say CREDITO otherwise you will not be able.

So I have tried to widthdraw yesterday from banks mentioned above, but the only one which worked for my was Banco International. Others were asking for fees in between $4500 and $6000 pessos. I tried all possible options on each ATM (credito/checking/saving account). In the stores so far I paid only wireless in regular grocery and it worked well.
I only haven’t tried BICO and Itau, so once I will try it I will update results here. Maximum withdrawal is 200k as mentioned above.
Als I have a question, does anyone know if it is possible to withdraw USD from ATM here? I hostel I was told it should be possible from Santander, but when I tried it, I was not able to find option from pessos to dollars. Plus Santander has a highest fees $6000. Especially on the airport. So anyone arriving I would suggest to use Cambio for little exchange and then after taking bus/uber/taxi withdraw money in the city.

Thanks for all the info @mihro! I’ll travel to Chile and Argentina soon and these recommendations are priceless. Was totally confident about revolut! I might be cautious and use other alternatives or prepare some amount of money to be able to exchange in the case of revolut doesn’t work.

ScotiaBank Does NOT CHARGE :partying_face::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face:

Is there any update on using cards for purchases & ATM withdrawals in Chile?
I’m travelling to Argentina & Chile October 2022.
Thanks

Until someone else can respond with a definitive answer, this online reference might give some guidance.

Chile – Banco Internacional was working without commision, however in recent past many ATM added intercharge fee. Upon the withdraw you should always choose „saving account”, there is a limit of single withdraw 200 000 Peso. Avrage intercharge fee is around 4000-6000 peso. During cashless payments in shops or restaurant you should always choose „Credito” or the payment might be declined.

Can anyone let me know if I can use my Revolut card in Chile for payments etc as I am travelling there in 10 days time

Hi @Terrybrown_uk and welcome
Your post appears to cover two aspects - card payments and ATM withdrawals so falls between two possible areas.
You might wish to also look through the following topic too (although many posts there may not now be the current position)

has anybody got any recent experience of using revolut in Chile , Argentina and Brazil? Which banks are best to use?

In Chile, as of June 2023 Scotiabank does not charge fees for withdrawals. Every other bank I have tried charges anything between 4000 and 7000 pesos which equals to 4£ and 7£ respectively.

Uruguay - Use a revolut visa not mastercard even though both work.

ATM withdrawals:
Redbrou no fee
Itau - 200 pesos
There was another one don’t quite recall but charged 100 pesos.

So Redbrou with the VISA is the best solution. Also the visa is recognised as a debit in shops so you get vat discounts like in supermarkets.
The mastercard always seems to be recognised as a credit card with no benefits.
Odd but true.
