Where to find Bank ATM which gives Euro notes?

Hello there,

Does anybody know if there is any bank ATM in Zurich which gives euro notes?
I know already that there are some but they give euro only if you already have an account with a swiss bank.What if someone(like me) needs euro notes but doesnt have an account here yet.
?

Re: Where to find Bank ATM which gives Euro notes?

Most ATMs in the City center will do that, but I have noted some surprising anomalies. Anyway, ATMs at the Central Station will give euros, and so will many Postbank in the Center, and ATMs up and down Bahnofstrasse etc etc

If I saw it right there is one inside the Zurich HB station near the Kiosk store(between platform 14 to platform 7) that gives Euros for CHF.

Nearly all the yellow Post Office ATMs offer Euros. I don't think you have looked very hard.

I bank with ZKB and it's been a very very long time that I last saw an ATM that didn't do Euro notes.

Re: Where to find Bank ATM which gives Euro notes?

The OP doesn't have a Swiss account. Most ATM (probably all) that I have seen will only tend Euro with a Swiss card.

Your only option might be to go to a Bureau de Change and buy your Euros there.

True, the SBB ones are normally quite good and not too expensive. In Zürich HB there is even an automatic changing machine if ever you should need Euros outside of normal opening hours.

i know that most of the ATMs offer Euro notes but only if you have a swiss card which i dont so that is the problem. i guess the best solution is exchanging chf for euro as the last peopled suggested.

anyway,thank you all for your time!

They will quote you a price at the time, it's slightly better than the counter rate.

I see your present location is Patras, Greece, so they might be a bit nervous of giving you euros and will need to check with Angela Merkel first!

Re: Where to find Bank ATM which gives Euro notes?

Hi everyone,

I am looking for an ATM in Switzerland which would dish out Euros, when presented with a EU EUR card (not a Swiss bank card, I know that works everywhere).

Does such an an ATM exist?

Re: Where to find Bank ATM which gives Euro notes?

Will you be debited exactly the withdrawn amount in Euro?

I recall vaguely someone telling me that if you take Euro from a Swiss ATM, you are effecively buying Euro with CHF.

And therefore, your bank in Euroland will charge you the day's rate to buy that CHF !

Not sure if it is like that, but if so, then you are paying a lot to convert to CHF and then to EUR again...

In my case no, but that's because I did a mistake. I had this brand new Euro card with some free withdrawals per month and before taking the plane I wanted to test exactly what you're asking. However it did not work out and I later realized I did something wrong... I forgot what it was, it was just two weeks before Covid and I never withdrew EUR since then.
I guess I will have to test it again...
