Help! Just when I thought I understood how to use my only debit card at UK ATM's I've hit a snag. I just came across a recent article dated May 14, 2019 https://www.touristbee.com/2007/12/use-your-atm-card-in-europe that said your Visa debit card should have a Visa Plus logo on the back and can be used at any ATM in Europe that runs on the Plus network. That I should find an ATM that displays the Visa or Plus symbol to withdraw my cash. It went on to say that even if the Plus symbol is missing from the back of the card, it will run on that network in Europe.
My Plus symbol is not only missing on the back, but it has two other networks indicated- NYCE and Money Pass. My card is from a small local bank and is closed at the moment. But an internet search of these two networks show NYCE only has ATM's in Canada and US. The Money Pass network is in US and Puerto Rico only. I also installed the NYCE ATM locator app and tried searching London. No luck. The closest one to London is in Connecticut!
Does anyone have experience with a card with these networks working or not working in London and Amsterdam? I called my bank last week and they said there is a fee for ATM withdrawals, but I honestly don't think they considered the network their card runs on may not work in Europe. At least they never mentioned it to me. I leave for London in 15 days and now I'm thinking I'm going to have to carry from the US whatever foreign currency I think I'll need. I am not a happy camper right now. Can you good folks on the forum help me sort this out?
