Almost all ATM’s in Thailand levy a Thai Baht 150 fee per withdrawal (about US$5). This can really add up if you like to keep cash in your pocket to a minimum and make regular withdrawals.
Fortunately one company – Aeon – offers fee-free withdrawals. This Japanese credit card company does not have traditional branches and their ATMs can be hard to find. Their own website offers a list but no link to maps.
In general you will find one of their ATMs in branches of Big C or Tesco Lotus but this is not a given. Four I have personally located are in:
Siam BTS – Siam Paragon mall – take escalators behind Swensens to the basement parking level
Ploenchit BTS – in Max Value supermarket at rear of complex behind Royal Porcelain store next to Sukhamvit Novotel
Asok BTS – basement level of Terminal 21 Mall
On Nut BTS – Big C supermarket on On Nut road about 400m from BTS – in car park area on ground floor
In all cases the ATMs are not clearly branded. Look carefully at the pale blue screen and you will see the name Aeon
Be careful after completing the transaction as the machine dispenses cash then receipt and only then your card back – do not forget the card!
