Garanti ATM now charging to withdraw

Just a heads up to let people know there is now a 2.5% charge if you want to withdraw Sterling from a Garanti ATM, I'm sure more banks will follow. Bit of a pain for those of us that withdraw Sterling from or UK accounts to convert to TL. xx

Yes, noticed that last week.
But why draw sterling and convert to TL?
We use Starling Bank and just draw in TL.
No charge to withdraw cash (unless the specific atm charges itself, not Starling) or for paying using the card. Exchange rate set by Mastercard.
Just remember to draw in Lira and make payment in Lira (not Stirling with their dynamic conversion charge DCC).

Re: Garanti ATM now charging to withdraw

In September Garanti were charging but their exchange rate was the best so it paid us to use them with our Nationwide card .

Re: Garanti ATM now charging to withdraw

It is only recently that Garanti have started charging for Sterling withdrawals. I normally use IsBank or Akbank depending on location but have at times drawn 500 from Garanti with no charges. Last week however a message came on the Garanti screen saying I would be charged 2.5% transaction fee for withdrawing the 500 requested (12.50) so I decided to walk an extra few hundred yards and made the withdrawal from IsBank at no charge and saved the 12.50.

Yes, this is exactly what I did yesterday, up until then there was no charge as far as I could see here in Fethiye, I'm not sure if we will get the same rate of conversion if we withdrew TL as suggested as it is something we have never done, does anyone have an answer to that ? Thanks. xx

Re: Garanti ATM now charging to withdraw

Why not change to TL online and withdraw the TL at a convenient time? No commission.

We have been taking GBP out of the ATM from our UK bank accounts for years and found it the best way to avoid charges and also shop around for the best TL rate. If we took TL direct from our UK accounts at the Turkish ATM we have to pay a conversion rate of 2.99% to the UK bank whereas by taking GBP we only pay a 1.50 card useage fee for withdrawing 500.
In order to convert from GBP to TL pnline we would have to transfer GBP from our UK accounts to our Turkish GBP account, hence incurring charges far in excess of the 1.50 card useage fee for withdrawing GBP.
To pay 2.50% to Garanti for the privilege of withdrawing GBP from a UK account is total economic stupidity.

Do they charge to take GBP out over the counter?

This morning I took Sterling from the TEB ATM in Datca, no charge as usual.
