In Spain, you'll find that most ATMs ("cajero automático" in Spanish, "caixer" in Catalan) have a withdrawing fee for international cards like Visa/Mastercard. ATMs are legally required to indicate the exact fee and ask for confirmation. So feel free to test around, cancel the transaction if the fee is too high for you and take some time to find the best ATM to use.
Fees can vary depending on:
Here are the ranges for each bank:
Read the comments for many updated ATM fees, and please let everybody know if you found a no-fees ATM or if you had different fees with your card.
If you are looking to send money to Spain consider using TransferWise for spending in any currency, receiving money for free and sending money internationally with low transparent fees — much cheaper than using your local bank. You can even get your own local bank account details in Europe, UK, US, Australia and New Zealand with the TransferWise borderless account.
Your own bank may also add its own fees. This is specific for each bank, so check with your bank pricing to see the fees for international withdrawals.
These ATMs have popped up everywhere in the center of touristic cities in Europe: do not use them. They have horrible fees and push users to withdraw high amounts of cash. Moreover the dynamic exchange rate (if you choose to let the ATM make the conversion for you, never do that) is outrageous.
Don't forget to ask for a receipt, especially when you're abroad. And once you have it, take a picture of it immediately because you'll probably end up losing the paper. Make sure the amount on the receipt matches the amount on your account. And in the case of a dispute, use your receipt/picture as a proof.

Corralejo: ING Cashzone ATM. €3.95 fee with Revolut card. LaCaxia (Caxiabank) wanted €7! There is a Banco Sabadell nearby but I suspect it will charge too. I guess the days of free ATM withdrawals are almost over.
Oct 23, 2022 at 08:47
Just took out 250 euros on monza card from ING standalone machine in Ibiza. Gave me a choice of rubbish exchange rate of 1.03 euros to GBP or 3.95 fee. Went for the fee as lots cheaper with exchange rate of 1.14-1.15.

In Madrid, travelling from London. I wanted to use barclaycard rewards card to withdraw 100 euros. This card does not charge withdrawal fees abroad. Unicaja bank ATM lets you know that they will charge barclays bank €0.75 - not you. If not using a barclaycard rewards card, check if your card charges withdrawal fees or not.

Aug 8, 2022 at 21:11
Caixa in Vigo just asked €7 for a €100 withdrawal. A pity coz Caixa was so much my go-to bank that I ran a lot of funds through them when I had Spanish residency.
Aug 2, 2022 at 14:14
Avoid Santander. The worst bank to withdraw especially if coming from a non-euro account. The best bank for me is Deutsche Bank.
EUR - AED
Withdrawal Fee - 7 EUR
Exchange Rate - 4.42
CR at that time - 3.75
EUR - AED
Withdrawal Fee - Zero
Exchange Rate - 3.89
CR at that time - 3.75
Withdrawal Fee - 7 EUR
No Idea about the exchange rate.
Withdrawal Fee - 6 EUR
No idea about the exchange rate

I took out 500 x 2 "Euros from Cajero Euro Automatic" in Torreviejatoday. My card was in Euro and my money in euro. However, this bank changed my euro first to SEK and then Back to Euro. Total fees 160 Euro to take out 1000 euro. It is clearly a scam attempt.
Jul 14, 2022 at 15:30

Seville, May 13 2022 - Unicaja seems to be free for Euro 100 withdrawal. Did not get any message to confirm a commission charge; instead, was warned to reconfirm 3 times when declining the conversion rate offered between EUR and USD (though my debit card is from Canada).
This link to Unicaja website explains the ATM free charge for 2022:

Banca March and Unicaja in Malaga are still free for withdrawal
Jan 23, 2022 at 17:21
Santander ATM charged: 7 EURO fee, PLUS 6% premium on exchange rate from dollars to euros. They once were a partner with Bank of America with no fee or premium on exchange rate. Not the case in probably many years. NEVER again will I go near Santander.
Do not use the ATM from UniCaja. They don’t charge a fee, but they give a TERRIBLE exchange rate. Yesterday at the Benalmadena Costa UniCaja I went to exchange 500€ and the dollar to euro was...
Jan 11, 2022 at 19:07
The Unicaja bank machine on Diagonal in Barcelona ate my card, and when I went back the next day, they refused to give it back to me. I had to order a new card from my bank Canada... what a nightmare!

Oct 17, 2021 at 15:31
Because of suggestions here, I went to a nearby IberCaja to withdraw money. For 500 euros, I was charged 3.16 euros. My bank will pick up this charge. I had been dismayed at some of the other banks' rates--big charges and lousy exchange rates so I was happy to find this thread. Gracias.

I’m visiting Spain (Gran Canaria) next week!
Can anyone tell me where I can locate these atm’s (preferably the no fee/ low fee ones)?
I will be withdrawing with an American visa.
I find this topic is very useful for someone who is from non EU and considering to withdraw cash from Spanish ATMs before arriving Spain. This is one of the important budget planning elements. I used this website page to decide whether I should prepare more EURO cash before I arrived the country.
Today I am sharing my 2nd Sep 2021 experience from Madrid. I used UnionPay debit card from Myanmar/Burma for cash withdrawal (EURO 460) and the following are the fees shown to me on the ATM screens.
1. Santander ATM ask: 7 EURO
2. Euro Automatic Cash ATM ask: 5 EURO
3. Euronet worldwide ATM ask: 3.95 EURO
4. Sabadell ATM as: zero EURO
Today I have withdrawn 1 time each from Euronet worldwide (3.95) and Sabadell (zero). Will continue with Sabadell further onwards.
Aug 24, 2021 at 16:37
Just tried Santander in sitges with a Revolut card and the cash machine wanted to charge 7 Euros so I cancelled. Went to Banka March machine and no charge.
Aug 21, 2021 at 08:11
Me again. I’m now in Barcelona an August 21, 2021. CaixaBank Business charges €5! I wonder if there’s a difference between a Business branch or regular one. I will find out.
Aug 18, 2021 at 15:27
In Valencia August 2018, Santander wanted €7 to withdraw using my Revolut card. Used this page and tried IberCaja instead and they charged €0.75 which appears not to have been passed on by Revolut.
I was in Madrid August 2021 and used the ATM with Santander. I was charged €7. After reading this article I used iberCaja I was charged €O and they gave me the option of the cash denomination. Instead of two €50 bills I got five €20. This article is super useful. Thanks!
Aug 14, 2021 at 11:39
I'm Barcelona with a Dutch bank card.
I've tried few ATM and the fees (in euros) where as follow
I opted for IberCaja indeed and, as marked in someone else comment, this fee this not show in the statement at least so far
Aug 13, 2021 at 07:15
Just wanted to share my experience. Withdrew money yesterday in Palma, Mallorca from Interbank and they took 1.87€ for 40€ withdrawal. So it’s not for free! But definitely better than Santander.
Aug 12, 2021 at 13:08
Used my UK Santander card at ATM Santander and they charged me €9. Is this right .
Jul 16, 2021 at 06:32

Bkk bank in Bilbao, no fees.

Cant withdraw at Ibercaja with my Capital one debit card. Any info on that?

Banca Marcha also wants now 2 Euro fee as well as Cajamar Cala Rutal. Only one I found so far that still doesn’t charge you is Unicaja, ING and Deutsche Bank Espana.
Dec 10, 2020 at 00:33
Tried to withdraw 180 euros from Santander in Las Palmas today, and the fee was 7 euro.
Nov 25, 2020 at 00:04
At the establishment of the Euro, did the E.C.B. not mandate that there would be no fees for withdrawals in Euro from regulated Banks within the E.U.? Are the currency conversion rates controlled at regulated banks in E.U.?
I use Irish debit cards in Unicaja Bank in Nerja ( Malaga ) where there are no fees to date.
If using non E.U. bank cards, the wise thing to seems to be to never direct the ATM to convert the currency but to allow your own bank make the conversion.
Oct 25, 2020 at 21:32
Banca March in Yumbo Centre, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria don’t charge fees for ATM withdrawal
Oct 19, 2020 at 14:11
The above info is not accurate. I've traveled in 20+ cities in Spain in 2020 with a US debit card, and the only free ATMs I have found are:
* Eurocaja Rural
Sep 29, 2020 at 15:28
Caixabank in Albir, near Benidorm . Charge €2 fee today.
With no option of euros. Went auto GBP.
Second transaction I've done now. If won't happen again

Aug 9, 2020 at 15:26
My dad has lived in Spain for 17 years, has his residentia, pays Spanish tax on his pension and has a personal bank account with BBVA. Even using another Spanish bank eg Santander which is close to his home they still want to charge him €6.00 which means at 81 he still had to drive 30 mins to his actual branch to get cash.
I’ve tried to get him to change banks but he doesn’t want the hassle or to be disloyal. Oh how u wish the banks realised what they do to the older generation 😢😢

Apr 6, 2020 at 15:55
Caixa Bank charged me a 5 euro fee in Madrid when I was there a month ago. I was upset because I found a Sabadell atm with a 3.5 euro fee and better exchange rate later
Mar 5, 2020 at 16:42
Went to Caixa ATM yesterday & fee was 5 euro for 100 euro withdrawal ($7.50 CDN). Chose to continue but not with their currency conversion. Rip off but couldn't be bothered chasing another ATM as last of trip
Feb 27, 2020 at 15:59
CaixaBank Charged me 5.00 euro for a 200 euro withdrawal but I was not paying attention & chose their exchange rate margin which was 8.4% ( ouch ! ) so pay attention when using their machines
Feb 24, 2020 at 14:52
I tried to withdraw from Caixa today - from a euro account - and I was notified that I would be charged €2 for the withdrawal. (I cancelled the transaction and conducted the search for no fee cash points that brought me to your site!)
Feb 21, 2020 at 19:39
In Palma, Mallorca. Just used s stand alone ATM of Banca March. No fee for using my UK credit card to withdraw money. Any UK folks should get a Halifax Clarity credit card, put credit ON it, then use to take cash out of ATMs worldwide. Best exchange rate and no fee.
Feb 19, 2020 at 09:06
Caixa Bank charged eur 2 in suburban seville, which is OK by me.
Feb 18, 2020 at 11:06

Jan 15, 2020 at 14:24
I wish I knew what part of Spain everyone else is in, but all four bank in this Catalan town where I live charge a flat fee ranging from 5-7 euros each time, plus an inflated exchange rate. Yesterday, I went to withdraw 400 euros from my American bank (MasterCard) and at Santander, they now charge 7 euros just for the transaction plus a higher exchange rate than current international rates and would have charged me $485 for my 400 euro withdrawal. It's been better with the stronger dollar but I also know Spanish banks are hiking up their fees possibly due to higher government-set bank costs. Where are the fee-less ATM?
Jan 14, 2020 at 20:01
Using UK master card 5 years , never charged in Spain/ Canaries until today....
Santander wanted €7.....Bankia about 2 and Caixa which was always free , similarly.
Can confirm Ibercaja was free ! So used in Torremolinos.

Just tried a BBVA bank atm in Barcelona... 6 euro fee! Completely ridiculous, but I guess some people actually use it.

I also tried caxia bank and it was going to charge a fee. The only ATM's I found to be free were Unicaja and Cajasur.
Oct 21, 2019 at 07:28
