List of Banks branches that do not charge (or charge) fee with withdraw money abroad

Hello All,

I have used Monzo for the first time when I went to Germany. Card payment or contact-less were great.
However, once I needed some cash and I used an ATM machine. I was careful to follow the indication about not changing local currency in GBP ( take local currency), I was charged a fee by the bank who managed the ATM machine. Monzo’s customers service confirmed that.
Is there a list of banks which are not taking the fee?

Thank you.

I’ve not been to Germany other than changing planes a few times.

As a general guide, I find that ATMs attached to bank branches of the big banks in that country don’t charge. Shop ATMs often do, same as in this country.

eg in France, Société Genéral
Belgium, ING
Spain, Santander
Italy, Unicredit

In Japan, your card won’t work in most ATMs, 7 Eleven (a chain of local convenience stores) is one of the few where it will work, and they didn’t charge me when I was there about 5 years ago

I thought the same.
The ATM machine I used was not attached to any bank.
