It’s always smart to check with your bank to see if they have any international partners so you can get the withdrawal fee waived (usually $5). For example, I use Bank of America and their foreign partners are:
-Barclays United Kingdom ((England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Channel Islands)
-ABSA (South Africa)
-BNL Banca Nazionale Del Lavoro (Italy)
-BNP Paribas (France)
-China Construction Bank (Mainland China, excluding Hong Kong)
-Deutsche Bank (Germany and Spain)
-Scotiabank (Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and the Caribbean countries: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos Islands, and US Virgin Islands)
-Westpac (Australia & New Zealand).
