For as long as I can remember whenever the subject of ATM fees cropped up everyone within 100 miles would scream, “AEON if free”. And yes it was indeed true that AEON machines didn’t bolt on the typical 150 baht transaction fee. They did however give a slightly poorer exchange rate but that was never mentioned. The saving of 150 baht was all that mattered.
Well the days of free ATM cash withdrawals is over since AEON have now decided to go with the flow and charge users the Thai standard 150 baht fee.
At the time of writing not all of their ATMs had been updated with the new fee but I don’t think it will take long for this to roll out across their network.
