Travel Tips

  • There may be issues making withdrawals from mag stripe ATM’s if your identity has not been verified or you have not enabled mag stripe withdrawals in the app.

  • List of non-mag stripe ATMs (Worldwide)

  • We’d advise where possible, to pay and withdraw in local currency rather than GBP to avoid additional charges!

  • In any instance where you are asked to select card type when making a payment via terminal or ATM withdrawal, select Credit.
