- Portuguese Camino 2022
As I get closer to leaving Australia I have been reading horror stories about ATM rip offs especially in Portugal, and even more so inside the Airport. It seems very confusing. I have a good credit card that doesn’t charge conversion fees, but have not used for cash withdrawal at ATM before when overseas. It has a fee of 3.5% per withdrawal, and starts charging interest immediately. So might be more useful used elsewhere. So for cash withdrawal, I have ordered a Wise Debit Card. Can anyone offer experience with ATM withdrawals and the whole “reject the currency conversion” option which you have to apparently reject twice? Also advice on the fees for withdrawing? What with 3.5% charged by my credit card issuer (minimum fee of $4 AUD) and additional bank fees in Portugal to withdraw, plus the lousy exchange rate from Australian dollars to the Euro it seems a bit scary. All those brain trusts in Portugal, or have been to Portugal, and more importantly from Australia, can you come to the rescue for me?
