How can I withdraw money from ATMs free of charge?

Withdrawing money at the ATM of your house bank does not cost anything. As a rule, you also do not pay any fees at the ATMs of the associated banking group (banking association).

Withdraw money free of charge within the banking associations

In order to offer their customers the densest possible network of ATMs and free cash withdrawals, the banks cooperate and have formed associations. If your bank is part of a banking association, you can withdraw money free of charge from all member banks' ATMs.

For example, if you have an account with Commerzbank, you can use your Girocard to withdraw cash free of charge from the Deutsche Bank ATMs, as both banks belong to the cash group: You can withdraw cash from all ATMs of the Cash Group banks, without paying anything for it.

Withdrawing money from other machines

However, if you want to withdraw money from an ATM that does not belong to your bank, you have to pay a fee for this service.

Save yourself the fee at third-party ATMs: It is often worth driving a few meters more to withdraw money free of charge from an ATM belonging to your banking group. This can pay off at prices between EUR 2 and EUR 6 per withdrawal.

Interesting facts about ATMs

When was the first ATM available?

Withdrawing cash from ATMs conveniently and around the clock - this has only been possible for 50 years. G. L. Simjianden built the first machine as early as 1939, but after a short period of operation in the City Bank of New York it was removed again due to a lack of demand. The Kreissparkasse Tübingen opened the first cash dispenser in Germany in 1968.

Payment cards and banking systems

Within Germany you can easily withdraw money with your Girocard (debit card). Girocards are equipped with different payment systems so that this can also be done abroad: The best-known payment systems include “V-Pay” from the credit card provider VISA Europe and “Maestro” from MasterCard. The V-Pay or Maestro logo is shown on the girocard of a bank that offers these payment systems. Girocards with the V-Pay logo can be used all over Europe, Girocards with the Maestro logo usually also worldwide.
Note: You can only withdraw money via Maestro and V-Pay from machines that have the associated company logo.

Credit card fraud in which the card information on the magnetic stripe is read, the so-called "skimming", is not possible with V-Pay, as all important data is on the chip and not on the magnetic stripe. However, the risk is no longer as high with other cards either, since European ATMs also read the money cards via an EMV chip. In the meantime there are also systems that can recognize the manipulation of an EC terminal via attachments.

Another tip for your safety:

Before you withdraw cash from an ATM, you should check the machine briefly by taking a critical look at the keyboard and the card slot. If you notice something there, you'd better change the ATM. Be extra vigilant while you are withdrawing cash and do not allow yourself to be distracted or spoken to.
