It does actually depend on which card you have

We opened Nationwide accounts years ago because they didnt have fees and then of course they started to charge !

I think if you go on the Martin Lewis Money website it will have up to date information I think one or two Banks still do no fees but it all depends on the type of account you have

It also depends on which banks cashpoint you use, some are free and others vary from around 1.50€ to 6€ but they all tell you how much it will cost at the beginning of the transaction .

If you bank with Santander in the UK and use a Santander cash machine in Spain there are no charges.

Or use a prepaid card like Caxton. No charge for hole in the wall and you can use it like any other visa/MasterCard.
You can top up up whenever you like and take advantage of the best exchange rates as I did when it was 1.41 euros. Some prepaid cards charge when taking money out of a bank machine but Caxton don't.
I have used this for the last couple of years with no problem at all as you pay in euros with no iffy exchange rate.
