Avoid Barclays ATMs

So I discovered this morning whilst going through my transactions that whilst Barclays Bank will charge an additional GHS15.80 on all cash withdrawals of any size, GCB does not charge at all.

This means that I have lost a whopping GHS205.40 (£40.63 by the ave rate of £1 = 5cedis) since returning here in August. This hurts my soul. No doubt all the British Ghanaians coming over for Christmas will use Barclays ATMs because it is a banking brand they recognise and trust, but think about how much money you’re likely to withdraw over this time, and if it isn’t 4 figures at a time, you could rack up an unnecessary charges bill for absolutely no reason.

Go to GCB.
