On previous trips I've used my credit union's mag stripe only ATM card to get cash from ATMs. Never had a problem. Last time was France in 2015.
We're going back to France this September. I'd like to make sure these cards still work. If anyone has used mag stripe only cards successfully or not please let me know. I have a chipped debit card from my bank that I can use but I'd prefer to have a backup card.
