ATM's in HK and UK Banks

I get the feeling from the previous posts that using an ATM in HK is the better option.

Does anyone know which UK Banks do not charge to ATM use in HK?

My bank do charge, but I still have enough time to open a account with a different bank

We used our Nationwide Flex Account to withdraw money from ATM's in Hong Kong. We got a really competitive exchange rate and no charges at all.

Just a pointer on UK HSBC cards, we have tried on numerous occassions to use ours in HK, and always tell our local branch in the UK before we visit HK. Each and every time HSBC have put a block on our cards.

Nationwide Flex Account. It is like a bank account, you have to have money in to take it out. When you withdraw abroad you usually get very close to the "we buy at rate" rather than the "we sell at rate". And no charges at all.

Don't know if I am a bit late, but just wanted to say that Nationwide do not charge.

I have a FlexAccount with them (current account) - although when I used my card over in HK all the ATMs I used would warn me that I *may* be charged, when I came back and checked my statement I didn't have any charges.
