ATMs and US account access in Pat


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get a handle on how I'm going to access my US account from Pattaya. My bank (WaMu) uses Mastercard, which according to the MC ATM finder doesn't have an ATM on Pat. I'm assuming this is BS, but wanted to verify if anyone had problems using Mastercard debit cards in Pat.


Also, it's apparent that I'll be getting popped by my bank for the exchange rate in unfriendly, non-reacharound sorta ways. This displeases me, and I'd like to know if anyone knows of either a US bank or an international bank that won't bean me every time I try to access my funds from Thailand.


Would it be better to simply transfer a sizable chunk of money (enough to last for several months) to a Thai bank? Is there another option? Anyone know how I can move my USD into Euros, since the USD appears to be about as popular as plague rats lately?


So many questions, so much ignorance (on my end)....

Why not ask your bank, they may an answer or take Travelers cheques in Dollars, you'll get a better exchange rate out there.

I mainly use my bank card these days, but if you take your mastercard and passport to an exchange office, you can withdraw straight out of the card, then just transfer some money from your bank account to your mastercard over the internet.

I just take American Express Travellers Checks. I got a better exchange rate in Thailand. I'll take a couple hundred or so in cash and some left over Baht from my previous trip. Every couple days (sometimes every day) I would go somewhere like the TMB in Royal Garden mal to get more funds. My credit cards (both Visa and MasterCard) charge too much to pull cash from (interest, service fees, foreign exchage fees,...) and there is no way in hell I'll take a debit card with me.

You should have ZERO problems using a MC ATM card (WaMu account) in Pattaya.


I frequently use Wachovia and Fidelity debit cards, for withdrawals, with no problems.


The only caution is let your bank know you're traveling overseas--and using your debit card. Otherwise they might 'freeze' the account thinking their is fraud going on.

Don't worry - you're going to be switching banks pretty soon - WaMu is either going belly up or will be bought out by a legitimate financial institution. :)


Seriously, why don't you get a prepaid debit card for your trips to Patts. Netspend has a fairly good card, and lots of reload points throughout the U.S. I use it as my emergency back up.

P.S. You can also get a brokerage account with E*Trade. No ATM fees for any withdrawal and currently 34,000 THB/day daily withdrawal limit. Only $500 minimum balance. You can apply online. E*Trade was a bank before it added brokerage services. They also pay fairly good interest on savings and checking accounts.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
