Not often but sometimes I need a lot of cash. This is usually to pay for tradesmen but it can be other things.
Recently I bought a car. It cost 5k and the guy was adamant he would only take cash. Other times tradesmen will offer a discount to be paid in cash. This can run to thousands of pounds so is well worth it.
In the case of the car after looking at the vehicle and agreeing the purchase we went to the nearest HSBC (where I currently bank) and withdrew 5k in cash. This was all fine and it was easy - just turn up with debit card in hand and ID.
My question is could I have done this with my Monzo full current account debit card? Would I have been charged a fee or refused?
Are there any issues withdrawing (say) £10k in cash to pay a painter or builder? Could I do that at any bank?
This is for the CA not prepaid card.
