ATM Offered Exchange Rate -Scotiabank

Scotia charges a fee of 100p to use their machine.<<<

Was this the ATM in the bank or a stand alone Scotiabank ATM elsewhere?

We've used the Scotiabank ATM in the Zihua bank and because we are clients of Scotiabank we didn't get dinged the 100p fee.

However, when I was in Mazatlan last year, I accessed a Scotiabank ATM in a Farmicia Guadalajara and was startled to see that there was a 174p fee (CAN$13.92). I cancelled the transaction and went to the Scotiabank in Mazatlan, used the bank ATM and there was no additional fee.

Since then I've been back and forth with Scotiabank about this 174P fee but haven't been able to connect with the right people to find out why the fee -- especially to a client. The only answer I've received is that they would reverse the fee if I brought it to their attention.

We are planning a South America visit next spring and we want to be able to access the Scotiabank ATMs which are throughout lots of parts of South & Central America without the hassle of having to keep withdrawal slips then tangle with Scotiabank later.
