DKB Infographic 1 - Online Banking
* Some ATMs may charge their own fees, which is beyond DKB’s control. Currently, this is only the case out of Germany (i.e. in Thailand & some ATMs in the USA). The amount of the fee is displayed before withdrawal of the amount at the ATM. Of course, you can always abort the process and look for a different ATM with a Visa logo.
