ATM fees on the rise

Recommended Posts

Well out friends at Krungsri Bank (the yellow one) have decided it is time to pay for another swimming pool. Used the ATM near the Shangri-La Hotel today and the fee has now gone up to 220 baht, a 10% increase since I last used it. Don't know if that increase is just for Krungsri or all banks but my bet is on all of them. Amazes me what they charge when you can do an ATM withdrawal anywhere in Japan for free.

Guess it has been longer since I used the ATM than I thought. Still a nice example of greed though.

Not sure where your from but you must have a fee exempt from your home land as that is nothing if your home country is usually charging as well

Many of those cards have fees so rather than reading through the details on 12+ cards I asked.  David said he had a card with no fees which is of interest.

The fees help pay for the Thai Banks Non-Performing loans. Many homeowners are months and years past due

and the banks never foreclose on them. They just renew the loans after making a couple of payments. One day

they'll have to look at home value compared to loan balance. Many of the loans are upside down.
