We have just returned from Kos in Greece where we used our Barclaycard Platinum Card to withdraw cash and found that all banks in Greece now charge customers (tourists) who do not have a bank account in Greece, a transaction fee.
This varies from bank to bank with various charges from 2.5 euros to 3% per transaction.
Piraeus Bank charged 3 Euros and Alpha Bank charged 2.5 euros which we found was the cheapest.

Hi, yes, I read about that. here's a link to an article that summarises what the charges will be -
apparently from July 1st apart from Pireaus Bank which will start charging on July 22nd.
As I haven't posted much before, I'm not allowed to include the link. So Google KeepTalkingGreece (an English Language site for Greek news) - and search on the site for "ATM withdrawals with extra charge go into effect on July 1st 2019".

I have been looking for a card for forthcoming trip to Australia and this looks by far the best - no exchange or transaction fees, but it doesn't even get a mention in MSE. How can that be - am I missing something ??
