Want to find a free ATM near you? With ATM fees on the rise, it’s more important than ever to find a network of fee-free ATMs near where you live, work and play.

Here’s Where to Look for Free ATMs Near You

Isn’t it annoying when you go to an ATM while you’re out and about only to face a big fee to access your own money?

According to BankRate.com, the average fee for an out-of-network ATM withdrawal has reached a record high of $4.72.

Think about this: If you took out cash each week for a year and paid that fee every time, you’d rack up $245 in annual fees.

Here are Clark.com we don’t want you to do that! That’s why we’ve compiled this list of fee-free ATM networks that won’t charge an ATM surcharge on their end for you to get your own cash.

However, we should note foreign ATM fees (aka out-of-network fees) may still apply if your bank or credit union doesn’t have a partnership in place with these free ATM networks. Check with your financial institution to be sure.
