Does anyone know what banks in Spain do not charge a fee for getting money from the ATM. or the cheapest bank. I know this has been bought up before but things do change. Cheers.

The last time we were there (Last Winter) Unicaja did not charge a transaction fee.

You have to be careful NOT to accept their currency exchange rate and go for the UK rate but, other than that, everything was free.

Find a "cashzone" atm ,usually in a shopping centre. No charges for withdrawals of any amount.What i always use & did so yesterday & today, although I am withdrawing from a euro account on revoult or N26.

There in lies the problem for us card carrying Pound Sterling people.
The vast majority of banks in Spain charge a transaction fee of anything up to 4% should we wish to do the deed.

I’m pretty sure gus-lopez is right for U.K. cards. I’m sure I used my Santander Zero account charge free card one at La Zenia shopping complex and no charges at all, I have to use it as a sterling withdrawal to get the no charges.

Revolut, load with £'s change to euros & hold both on the app in different accounts.

Spain? Oh! In Portugal we looked for Multibanco ATMs for vendor fee free withdrawals. :xdoh:

Our Santander current account bank debit cards can be used FOC at Santander ATMs in Spain but there is a fee if we use them to purchase anything (2.95%).

Yes, which is precisely why we also got a Santander Zero credit card - automatically paid off in full every month.

I don't think they have been available for a long time though, we have Nationwide and Virgin which we use like you do. We also use Curve, hubby has his Lloyds 0% interest credit card linked to that so no fee even though there would be by using it direct, just have to remember not to use it at weekends or UK bank holidays where there is a small fee.
