so after traveling in Israel this is what I have picked up about using monzo.
virtually all cash machines have multiple language options.
Bank Hapoalim = no problems.
Bank Mizrahi-Tefahot = no problems.
Bank Leumi = no problems ( be very careful of what you click on, because the ATM give you an option to be charged in GBP rather than ILS at a higher fee so it’s obviously cheaper on monzo to be charged in ILS)
Discount Bank = EDIT they now let cash withdrawals, but sometimes it randomly declines the transaction for no apparent reason.
Mercantile Bank = EDIT they now let cash withdrawals, but sometimes it randomly declines the transaction for no apparent reason.
also there are more smaller banks that I haven’t tried .
IN STORE PURCHASES:
they will always just swipe the card and sometimes ask you to sign the receipt, they never ask for a pin.
I have never been refused in-store because they don’t accept a foreign card, so you shouldn’t have any problems using it in any shop.
if you have any questions about monzo in Israel or just traveling in israel @mention me and I’ll try to answer.
