1) Yes i wud say the dominant atm network there is Maybank. Btw...if u withdraw using yr SG Maybank atm card no service fee n exchg rate pretty good...best is CIMB exchg rate...not far off fr SG money changer rate...

2) U can - as even small fast food restaurant accept visa/Mastercard and some Alipay etc...but better use cash due to unfavourable exchg rate...unless local bank issued CC.
maybank exchange rate sucks. when sg is 3.03, maybank use 2.98

Many ATM available.
Can, can use credit card. user their rate is 2.75-2.77, if you pay MYR but use POSB and DBS rate will be 3.02. Confirmed and verified.
FWH nothing one.
posb / dbs got charge sgd$5 withdrawal fee. so you have to keep that in mind.

It's not even 2.9...i think 2.75! same as all other money changers - cimb, public bank etc...@ GH..of course la dun compare to SG or KL or JB money changers...ppl are asking abt ATM dude....so we let him know abt atm withdrawal n not some money changers..read properly first dude.

Hello,

Can I have some help with these few questions

1) Is there ATM in genting? Specifically Maybank?
2) Can I survive @ Genting without cash? Perhaps survive only using Visa/Masters/Youtrip?
3) Is there any gym for Resort Hotel guests?

Thank you!
If you have posb/dbs credit card, just use it. rate is around 3-3.02. not much difference from Singapore money changer. no point looking around in Genting the exchange rate not good one.

If u contemplate using credit card to withdraw fr ATM's better think long long first...dun just refer to exchg rate...the main bulk of charges come fr service fee + one time CC cash advance fee + CC cash-advance interests (approx.20++ % per-annum?)

Better options:
1) chg for RM @ SG money-changer
2) bring SGD n park @ Casino cashier in exchg for RM...must be min SGD1K...can redeem back yr SGD by 11.59pm of same day based on the same earlier exchg rate
3) withdrawal using ATM card (NOT credit card ya?) @ ATM's..

Caution: using credit card to withdraw fr ATM's = cash advance (future money) will lead u to Holland eventually...u will hv to deal with yr huge CC debts upon returning to SG ... it's also the easiest way to get yrself trapped in gambling habit..nvr ever use future money (credit card) for gambling!!

Just use the credit card instantly and directly. Genting majority shops accept credit cards.

Use credit card to pay food, clothes, Watson and premium outlets.

Exchange rate is 3.02 from DBS/posb bank, transacted on 25-26 July.

It is important to have discipline to set aside some fixed amount for gambling if lose just stop, just treat it as holidays expenses.

and u dun think i didnít try withdrawing?

where in my post did i state is not bank withdrawal? or just because the rates are not what you are expecting thus you blanket the post as non-atm withdrawal?
