Fee-free ATM withdrawal at Manila airport


I will be arriving at Manila airport without pesos and will be looking to make a cash withdrawal at an ATM. From what I have read some ATMs charge and some don't but would anyone be able to confirm whether there are any that don't charge at the airport?

Many thanks,

Just to be aware, unless you have already notified your bank that you will be in the Philippines (or even if you have) you may find your card blocked when you first try to use anyway.

I agree with the others responses, firstly you should inform your bank your are travelling to the Philippines. All ATM's at the airport do charge and the rate is normally 200 PHP. If you are withdrawing money I would recommend withdrawing a large amount up to your card or travel insurance limit. You may find that when ATM's are low on cash the withdrawal limit is lowered and that most ATM's will not let you take out more than 10,000 PHP. In addition my experience of Terminal 3 was that all of the ATM's only accept Visa for cash withdrawals, which means if you are a MasterCard debit card holder you will have to go to the shopping mall across the road. This can be very frustrating when you need to pay the airport fee!
