Hi all,

I am an exchange student for 6 months in Poznan. Unfortunately, I didn't bring enough cash to exchange in Kantors . I have already had a BNP account in France.

So, do u know how can I withdraw Europe money in Poznan or I can exchange the money from my account with a reasonable conversion fee?

I would be grateful if you could give me a little help.

Thank u.

Unfortunately you won't, you're in Poland, we don't use the Euro, are there any ATM's in France that dish out the Zloty?

Euronet cashpoints do this - but only in certain places. Check on their website but it is available in 2 or 3 places in each big town. But factor in your bus ticket and your time and you might be going through a lot of hassle for a few zloty benefit

Nothing to do with this. In Switzerland, where the currency is CHF, you can withdraw euros on many ATMs. And here in Turkey where I currently live, currency is Turkish Liras but you can still withdraw euros or USD from many ATMs.

@Wincig
We Poles don't like Euro. We don't use Dollars too. We don't need those in ATMs.

Open a euro-denominated account at a bank in Poznan (Alior is good) and then transfer euro from France using transferwise. Take out the euro from the bank and go to the Kantor. Remember to close the account after using it.

Btw. There isn't anything like Europe Money. There is EU Money or even just Eurozone Money called Euro.

You don't even need to use transferwise, a normal SEPA transfer will work if it's Euro-Euro within the EU.

Wincig, I don't want to turn this into a bun fight but he's not talking about either Switzerland or Turkey, he's asking about getting Euro's out of an ATM in Poland and then going to a Kantor to change into Zloty, cms has got it right, just go to the nearest cash point, stick your card in and take out your cash, what a hassle just so you don't lose a couple of Zlotys' on the exchange rate, like cms said, factor in your time, bus ticket or petrol, is it really worth the hassle.

It can be more than a couple of złoty. For instance, ING were charging a massive 6% on foreign withdrawals, so withdrawing 5000 złoty would cost you 300zł.

Love it. Wanna step foot on our dearest Polish soil? Pay for it! Stuff like that will keep serious weirdos from abroad just there. Abroad. Fantastic!

Actually, that was the fee charged by ING Bank ¦l±skie to Polish people using their cards abroad.

Nothing fantastic about that.
