How unusual in this electronic age that the same people that fucked the country during the last crash are still fleecing money from international travellers. It's not like I am paying by cheque you fucking arseholes, what POSSIBLE extra expenditure would me using an ATM overseas cause my bank? They already give me the worst possible exchange rate, ludicrously shitty interest rates on ACTUAL FUCKING CAPITAL and I will tell you why - it's because they can do whatever the fuck they want and the govt. will pay the bill when it goes tits up.I got cash in the end. That's been just as problematic because, well, if you can't put it into an account, what do you do with it? Been a nightmare.
That's the thing, can't deposit a foreign currency before changing it to GBP, goes in as a foreign currency and then you can only withdraw as GBP! Absolutely stupid.
In fucking fact:
