EUR withdrawal with foreign Debit Card

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to withdraw EUR in Zurich with my foreign Debit Card (MasterCard, EUR account based), but even those ATM-s which say EUR AusZahlung only give me the CHF withdrawal option (tried UBS and KantonalBank so far)


Any suggestion, experience where you could get EUR from an ATM with non-swiss debit-card ? (it would work in Germany, I know )

Nowhere as far as I know. The fact that Swiss ATM's have Euro possibility is that whatever you draw is taken from your Swiss bank account using a Swiss debit card, it doesn't apply to non-Swiss accounts/cards.

You'll have to change Swiss francs for Euros at a bank or foreign exchange.

Re: EUR withdrawal with foreign Debit Card

yeah, I was afraid their logic is the same 'simple' one:
you can take out EUR from CHF accounts, or CHF from whatever other foreign account you might have.. We will use our 'great' xch rates anyway ...


Was hoping there's a way to avoid that..
