Withdrawing cash in Swiss ATMs

Hi,

If I use a UK debit card and also an Irish debit card to withdraw cash in Swiss ATMs will there be many charges? Does anyone have a breakdown of the fees I'll be liable to?

Thanks!

Well your bank will charge you something, as per the Swiss ATm you take it from I have never been charged over 2.50 CHF.

You should ask your bank in the UK because usually there is a transaction fee.

I believe your bank will also apply it's own rate of exchange when converting the CHF amount back into either GBP or EUR, depending on the bank.
