It is the fifth busiest airport in the country, with nearly 7 million passengers a year, so major local banks have service points and ATMs (or Bancomats) here.

The Banca Popolare di Vicenza ATM is located at the first floor, aside the restrooms at the check-in area. There is another ATM, it is on the far right-hand side of the building by the exit door, it is a private-brand one, Euronet. The main service they provide is cash withdrawal.

In general, every bank has a lot of Bancomats scattered along the country but be aware that private-brand ATMs (which are usually aren’t owned by any major banking network in Italy). Almost any person who has used these Bancomats without any previous advice warns about the huge commissions and exchange rates the ATMs could charge to you in case you use their services (some examples are Travelex, Euronet and Forex). The commissions these companies will take from you will accumulate to the charges your local bank will charge you for an international withdrawal. Moreover, most of them will charge you with a 3% “foreign currency transaction” fee and finally, the quantities are blatantly discouraging.
In the case of feeling insecure, you can be pretty sure about using or not an ATM if you read carefully the warnings that the screen at the ATM must display telling you how much the automatic cashier will charge you immediately before you click on the button that will process the withdrawal.
