Re: Bank Charges

After recent posts on bank charges..I was never charged until now for taking sterling from Akbank.with my nationwide card.now the charge is 7.99% ,so on 500 the charge would be around 38 ,if you click accept on the ATM machine,but if you click don,t accept..the charge will only be 1.50

This is interesting hijo, we do as you do, and don't accept the charges, and up to now, not been charged, obviously some charges have now been introduced, we also use our Nationwide card, who makes the charge? Akbank or Nationwide? I cannot figure how Akbank can give change... I know this probably sounds a bit stupid, but I'm a bit confused as per usual. xx

Re: Bank Charges

It obviously makes no sense, economic or otherwise to give you the choice of paying 38 or 1.50.
On the odd occasion I have used Isbank to withdraw Sterling the charge (at that time a standard 4 on any amount but now 2.5%) was flagged up for acceptance. I still got the 400 I had asked for but 404 was taken from my UK account and I presume the 4 went to Isbank as the ATM message was the Turkish bank imposed a charge. The Halifax also charge a 1.50 fee for using the card to draw Sterling.
Since then, as the nearest "free" Sterling machine is a 120 mile round trip, I use TransferWise. Better exchange rates than my own online bank or exchanges(mid market Reuters rate guaranteed) and around 0.7% transfer fee as opposed to 2.5% 3.5% or even higher at the ATMs. Plus the fact the TL goes straight into my Turkish account.

Re: Bank Charges

I have used Transferwise in the past, and have never noticed a minimum amount. xx

I just logged into my Transferwise account, and there is an area where you can make a comparison, and both Barclays (who don't charge a transfer fee apparently) and Nationwide who does charge a fee are better value, though I only put in 10 to transfer. Hope this helps.

In answer to enoch, the minimum that can be sent is 1...but as with the example of 10 that sue gave, the charges are not realistic due to the small amount...plus who would really transfer so little?
I use it 2 or 3 times a month and for me it is by far the cheapest option.
I have attached an example of sending 500 and it beats other banks by between 68TL and 245TL.
The other option of paying 2.5% or 3.5% to take GBP from ATMs is obviously far more expensive.
If anyone isnt already registered with TW and wishes to give it a go with a free no fee transfer of between 200 and 500 please PM me and I will pass on the code which they gave me for friends for a free transfer
