Bank of Ireland to install free ATMs in POs

20 July 2005
Bank of Ireland has revealed plans to install ATMs in 1,000 Post Offices around the country.

The facilities will provide customers with access to their cash for no fee, underlining the Post Office’s ongoing commitment to providing free cash withdrawal outlets across the UK.

As a result of the link-up, the Post Office is to withdraw from contracts with fee charging ATM suppliers.

Figures released by the Post Office have revealed that free cash withdrawals at its branches have trebled over the past year and have now reached almost one million a day.

The Post Office has 14,600 branches across the country which already offer free over-the-counter services to customers with basic and current accounts at a wide range of high street banks.

David Mills, chief executive of the Post Office, said: "This deal is a significant step towards achieving our vision of free cash access for all, from any type of bank account, at Post Office branches.

"Our partnership with Bank of Ireland is great news for both the Post Office and our customers."
