Now that we have an idea of the banking and ATM options that travelers passing through Frankfurt airport have, it is also important to know the fees you are likely to incur when using these financial services.

First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that the bank that owns the ATM does not charge but rather your home bank is the one that charges the fee. lf you note that the ATM you use has charged you, then the ATM is probably business owned (f.e. Euronet).

Also worth noting is that exchange rate fees from ATM are much cheaper than banks, so you would rather use an ATM where the option is available over a bank, which is mostly the case in Frankfurt Airport.

A final point in regards to ATM fees revolves around the popular venture dubbed Global ATM Alliance which has seen several major international banks come together to allow customers of their banks to use their debit cards or ATM cards at another bank that must be a member of the Global ATM Alliance without incurring any International access fees, though some fees like foreign currency fees would still apply.

Find out if your bank is a member of the Global ATM Alliance, and whether it is or is not will put you in a position to select what ATM or banking option best suits you among those mentioned, in terms of cost, time you have to carry out your financial transactions and if the option you want is available to you.
