Do you know how much your bank is charging you whenever you use your automated teller machine (ATM) to make a withdrawal or balance inquiry in another bank’s ATM?

Be aware, because if you have no idea how much the fees are, they can eat up your total deposit balance.

Gone are the days when you can simply use your ATM in another bank’s machine for free. These days, withdrawal charges can be as high as P15.00 per transaction. Even a simple transaction such as balance inquiry is charged as high as P2.50 per use whenever you do it using another bank’s ATM.

ATM Withdrawal Fees

Clients of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), BPI Family Savings Bank, and Banco de Oro (BDO) Smart Money Card are charged the most for every withdrawal in another bank’s ATM. The fee charged to these depositors is P15.00 per withdrawal transaction.

The following banks, meanwhile, charge P12.00 for every withdrawal made in other banks’ ATM: Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC), Union Bank of the Philippines, Malayan Bank, and Chinatrust.

These banks charge P11.00 per withdrawal transaction in other ATMs: BDO Unibank Debit Card, BDO Unibank Cash Card, Metrobank, Philippine National Bank (PNB), United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB), Asia United Bank (AUB), Bank of Commerce, Maybank Philippines, and Robinsons Bank customers.
