Thailand has one of the highest ATM fees in the world. Every time you take money from an ATM in Thailand you pay 220 baht, on top of what your bank charges you.
But you can avoid ATM fees in Thailand by opening a checking account with a linked brokerage account through Charles Schwab.
Although it’s a brokerage account, you won’t have to invest money into the account. And you won’t have to pay any set-up or maintenance fees.
You’ll get a debit card that you can use in Thailand—and all over the world—without having to pay ATM fees.
