Exchange rate for euros? All my euro withdrawals with ATMs in the UK were always charged in euro. No exchange rate involved.
It is something different when you withdraw GBP of course. Then you ususally have to take your own bank's rate, not the ATM rate.

A side note to tell that many rogue ATMs are also in Prague. They can provide euros to non euro card holders only.

They charge in GBP. No other options available (with my German debit card). I know it's kind of a scam. But I had very little time and wanted the dot, so I bit the bullet.

Antalya, Turkey: Several ATMs with Euros (and often USD, too) at the airport (international terminal, landside) and also in the area surrounding the old town, one ATM at the entrance of the Antalya Museum - :note-50: notes.

Back from my trip to Image Belarus.

Several banks are running ATMs dispensing USD, Russian Rubles and.... EUR. :D
The most ATMs giving EUR you can find on this site of Belveb bank: https://www.belveb.by/ofisy-i-bankomaty/bankomaty-sbs/ (only russian, in the checkbox you can change the city)

Some ATMs only :note-50: , others only :note-100: .
German credit and debit cards worked fine, and balanced EUR = EUR. Only the machines originally ran by Belveb took a 3 EUR commission.

This is not only EuroNet ATMs that are rogue. Main banks' ATMs have started to propose their own offers of conversion that you should ALWAYS DECLINE if you need to withdraw money.

In general I would recommend EBTers to come with their own (recorded) cash and change them at safe exchange offices. The good ones have a better rate than any bank. They are also some exchange offices with rogue rates but by law you can ask to get your money back up to 3 hours after the transaction. If they refuse, just pretend you call the police, that helps…
