RTVE article on Spain ATM fees

Jump to last reply

Today on the RTVE website (excerpt in Spanish):

"El Banco de España considera que la retirada de efectivo en un cajero automático constituye un único servicio de pago, con independencia de que se realice en un cajero propiedad de la entidad emisora de la tarjeta bancaria o de otra entidad. En consecuencia, ese servicio solo puede originar el cobro de una comisión, ya sea por la entidad emisora de la tarjeta o por la entidad propietaria del cajero.

De esta forma, la institución gobernada por Luis María Linde sale al paso ante el anuncio de diversas entidades de cobrar una comisión a los no clientes por extraer efectivo de sus cajeros. En concreto, CaixaBank decidió hace unos meses aplicar una comisión de dos euros a los no clientes, una operación que iban a poner en marcha BBVA o Santander después de verano."

It looks as if it will get more difficult to avoid ATM fees when getting Euros in Spain. As I will be there this fall, are there any suggestions as to which financial institutions I should look for to avoid these fees (over and above the ones my Canadian bank is already charging me)? I hope this trend does not spread throughout Europe, but expect/fear it might.
