Welcome to the first edition of A Travellers Guide to ATMs.

About This Project.
The aim is to provide readers with a regularly updated and easy-to-read list, showing which ATMs are the best option for withdrawing cash abroad. The list will consist of countries listed from A to Z and banks that charge either, none or the lowest fees for cash withdrawals using foreign cards.

This project will rely on the steemit community to keep it up-to-date. I have kicked things off with a short list containing all the information I know from personal experience. You are welcome to verify or correct this information in the comments section. You can also add countries to the list by providing the relevant details in the comments. I will add the information from the comments section to next weeks edition of the list.

Anyone who contributes information will be credited in a section at the end of each post, where I will encourage readers to visit their blog. Going forward, if this project gathers steam (excuse the pun) and goes on to become successful, I will try to devise a way of rewarding contributors with either Steem or SBD. Any feedback or suggestions on a fair way of doing this would be welcomed.

(This list shows ATMs that charge no fees for using foreign cards. If no ATMs are free for tourists to use in a country, the cheapest known option is listed instead).
