ATMs you can use for free. For many people, the availability and cost of ATMs are big reasons why they choose one bank over another. Generally, you can use your own financial institution's ATMs without incurring fees. Your institution may also be part of a larger, no-fee ATM network. Talk to a bank representative to learn more or visit your institution's website to search for its ATMs.
If you cannot use a fee-free ATM in your bank's network, know that fees can
vary. By law, the fee that the operator of an ATM may charge for a withdrawal or other transaction must be disclosed on the screen of the machine or on a printout so that you can cancel the transaction before paying any fees. These charges can vary widely, so consider finding another ATM if the fee is larger than you expect. In addition to incurring fees from the ATM operator, you may be charged a fee by your bank for using a machine that's not within its ATM network.
