Travellers that hate carrying around bundles of money can rest assured that they’ll always have access to an ATM, even when visiting somewhere as remote as Antarctica.

No seriously, there’s an ATM in Antarctica.

According to new research by ING, although some 93 percent of Aussies carry cash while travelling, there’s still high demand for ATMs around the world, even in the most unlikeliest travel spots.

The company, which recently dropped its fees for international transactions made overseas or online, says travellers can withdraw cash from somewhere as remote as Antarctica to somewhere as high as 14,300 feet above water in Tibet.

Here are five of the most remote ATMs in the world:

 

1. The most remote ATM

Among the sea lions, seals, whales and birds, sits an ATM accepting all cards.

According to Mental Floss, the ATM was installed back in 1998 at McMurdo Station for the local population (only around 1,000) to buy necessities.

 

2. And the most northerly

From the Antarctica to the Arctic.

Located in Longyearbyen, Norway is the most northerly ATM, which NCR.com says was installed to cater to the local population of just 2,000 people.

 

3. The highest ATM

Not sure why people need to withdraw cash while hiking up a mountain, but alas, they can do just that in Nagqu, Tibet.

The ATM is the highest in the world, says NCR.com, and likely the least used.

 

4. Along with the floating ATM

Indonesia launched special boats back in 2014 with ATMs on board in order to give millions of people living on islands access to banking services.

According to Banking.com, while the concept of a floating ATM is fun, it’s also brilliant in ensuring everyone has access to financial services.

 

5. And the Forbidden ATM

Even UNESCO World Heritage Sites can’t escape the money world.

An ATM can be found in Beijing’s Forbidden City Museum, which is located within the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
