That might do it, yes. I generally ask to exchage €20 or €25, if they can give back, and if they can't I propose to give a 5-er extra ;)

Going through this thread, my understanding is that this is the case for most euro "ATM's" outside the Euro Zone - there is almost always a fee involved. There are very few "pure" cash dispensers (it may have been the case with those London ones in the past, I wouldn't know).

On another note, that was a great post you made there, very insightful. :)

I don't know now, but when I took € in ATM in UK last year (London, Stansted & Luton Airports), it was totally free.

I agree with kleman. I withdrew euros in London-Canary wharf Tube station ATM and Southend Airport. My bank charged me only the normal 2 € fee for withdrawal outside Euro Area. I remember the same happened to me in Turkey in Pamukkale and Turkish part of Cyprus. But it all depends on the country. In Qatar i paid more then i withdrew.

OK then, perhaps I mixed up fixed service fees (charged by banks), and floating exchange rate fees (determined by the market).

Sydney airport has Euro-dispensing ATMs scattered around - they give out :note-20: :D No fee using my :flag-at: bank card, no conversion, just the same euro amount deducted from my account.

In Toronto, Canada, one bank, CIBC has a bunch of euro dispensing atms through the airport and in the city. Unfortunately they force conversion from CAD to EUR at a poor exchange rate and then also charge 2 EUR commission on top per withdrawal. Their machines at the airport also have currencies including GBP, Japanese Yen, Chinese Yuan, Mexican Pesos and even Indian Rupees!

I have also seen one ATM in Hong Kong that has euros, but it doesn't accept foreign cards. Screen said all it had were :note-100:.

Yesterday in the Airport of Atlanta i've seen an ATM Travelex with the € symbol on it, I try it with my french card but it was not working (maybe because of my account).
It is on Terminal F.

I don't think it has been mentioned, but London City airport LCY has two ATMs with € when you enter the terminal building from the DLR, on the left between the Swiss desk and the Travelex exchange. Only :note-20: and probably always UNC.

Toronto airport YYZ does indeed offer a very bad rate. We were approached by a gentleman from an exchange office who said he could offer € and you could pay by card. I think he has a better rate. I ended up getting charged € 29,65 for a :note-20: at the ATM :evil:

They are selling :note-20: :note-50: for an inflated price in GBP. If you put a euro card in, you will pay €21 for :note-20: or €53 for :note-50: - or even more if your bank has a fixed charge for foreign transactions.
That has never been my experience in the UK and my withdrawals last Friday and Monday did not cost me any fee. 25x :note-20: withdrawal ended up as € 500 on my bank statement.

Chalk Farm tube station in Camden, London has an ATM that dispenses Euros. Walked past it while I was there two weeks ago.

Am Flughafen in Tel Aviv kann man an zwei Automaten problemlos neben Shekel auch € ziehen. Und zwar neben dem Wechselschalter der Bank Poalim, Rot Weisses Logo, in der Abflughalle. Ich habs zu spät entdeckt und hatte meine Transaktionen so und so bereits erledigt. Aber fürs nächste Mal ist es vorgemerkt.

On Airport Tel Aviv are two ATM, near the Bank HaPoalim Counter ( red white logo ). They are handing over not only Shekel, € too.

Going to Lüzern, Switzerland and Lichstenstein today and trying to find Euro-ATM's there, that gives euro with foreign card. If anybody has a last minute hint, give it soon. If not, I tell you later, if found any.
