BANGKOK — Use ATMs in any province without being charged distance fees from Tuesday through January.

Fifteen members of the Thai Bankers’ Association, including all major banks, won’t charge the usual interprovincial fees of 10 baht to 30 baht so long as they use a machine belonging to their bank, officials announced Monday.

The exemption is aimed at providing convenience to those traveling to the capital to pay their respects to His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol. It will be in effect until Jan. 3, according to the association.
