My mom is coming over from Germany for the Christmas holidays. I wonder what kind of debit cards work here and what the fees are? It is ages ago that I've researched which debit card that is tied to a checking account actually works in Thailand and what the fees are. For me, about 10 years ago, my german debit card would have to show the Maestro logo and it simply worked in Thailand: It was based on a magnetic strip and a PIN. But I've heard that Maestro has been replaced by V-pay by VISA. Unfortunately, I don't know what V-pay is, because my knowledge is so outdated. My questions is, what logo a foreign debit card should/must display in order to work in Thailand? Does it matter, if the card is chip-based or magnetic strip? Assuming the above is resolved, what are the fees incurred to my mom's account, when she draws cash from a local ATM? Thank you in advance.
