If you open a brokerage account with Schwab they give you free checking that reimburses all ATM fees, including international ones.

Note  the following from the T&C:

Quote
2. Unlimited ATM fee rebates apply to cash withdrawals using the Schwab Bank VisaŽ Platinum Debit Card (also referred to as a "Check Card" or "Visa Check Card"), wherever it is accepted. ATM fee rebates do not apply to any fees other than fees assessed for using an ATM to withdraw cash from your Schwab Bank account Schwab Bank makes its best effort to identify those ATM fees eligible for rebate, based on information it receives from Visa and ATM operators. In the event that you have not received a rebate for a fee that you believe is eligible, please call a Schwab Bank Customer Service Representative for assistance at 1-888-403-9000. Schwab Bank reserves the right to modify or discontinue the ATM fee rebate at any time.

Bank Direct?

According to this page (ATM tab) it's limited to four transactions in the use:

Quote
The BankDirect VisaŽ CheckCard also allows you to access ATMs worldwide. Unlike many banks, we do not charge for ATM usage. However, some ATM owners apply a fee for use of their ATMs. BankDirect refunds up to four (4) ATM transaction fees, at $2.50 per transaction, per statement cycle (from United States locations only). The rebate will automatically appear in your account in the form of a credit.

4 is no big deal (how many times do you use the ATM a month) but only in the US...too bad!

I don't think $2 is terrible, As long as its not a % fee  or a rotten exchange rate

I don't think this would have happened had it remained commerce.

I know $2 isn't that bad compared to other banks that charge $5, but I enjoyed the fact that there were no fees as I don't like to keep $ on me in a bocherim dira!

Bank of America charges $5 per withdrawal. That's pretty annoying!
