Is there an app or a website that presents ”bank-operated” ATMs around the world? In sweden we use https://bankomat.se/ to find all bank-operated ATMs.

Right now I’m looking for an ATM in Playa de las Americas, Tenerife.

I have gotten ripped of by one of Euronet ATMs, which added a 10% fee (”fake” high exchange rate”), so it is important I do not use "independent" ATMs, such as Travelex, Euronet, Moneybox, Your Cash, Cardpoint, and Cashzone, since these all have high fees and may try to trick you with "dynamic currency conversion."

  • The rant content has now taken a second place. It could be a bit less still but I think it is acceptable now.

  • Use the international ATMs recommended by your own bank/card issuer. Mar 24 '19 at 16:34

Find a bank. Most banks these days have ATMs, and an ATM at or in a bank will be affiliated with the bank, and not one of the "independent" systems. A quick search on Google Maps shows lots of banks.

  • If you are really fortunate then you will find a closely affiliated bank to your own. For instance I have an account with BBVA in the US so I would use the BBVA ATMs in Tenerife for the lowest possible fees/rates. Mar 24 '19 at 16:42
