Charges at ATM's for drawing Sterling

It seems that almost all the banks are now charging varying percentages for withdrawing Sterling from their ATM's. What is the alternative so as not to lose too much from our measly pensions?

Re: Charges at ATM's for drawing Sterling

We don't get charged using TEB or Akbank ATM's, at the moment. xx

So far TEB not charging. Will go there today and let you know. (If I can ever get a shower that is)

Re: Charges at ATM's for drawing Sterling

You would have to look to see if there is a sign.
I heard this afternoon, through a third party, that Akbank are now charging 5%, although that might be a Chinese whisper as this morning it was 1.5%.

Re: Charges at ATM's for drawing Sterling

They do seem to fluctuate. Isbank started off at a flat rate of 4. Then they changed to 2.5%. Garanti started off at 2.5% then changed to 3.5%.
I know some people are using transferwise, but some are not happy having to verify their transactions with passport copies etc.
Others are paying a one off fee to their bank to make a GBP transfer to their Turkish bank GBP account then converting online to TL (for eg the Halifax charges 9.50 whatever the transfer amount).
Certainly at the moment TEB seems to be the best option as Harem points out its still free.
