Info on the usage of ATM, debit and credit cards in Italy and Europe


Here are some links on the usage of ATM, debit and credit cards in Italy and Europe:

PLEASE NOTE: The information being provided is primarily for debit and credit cards issued from institutions based in the USA except where noted below.

* = Blog entry has been updated.

For your specific interest, please search the web for further information using Google .

The above links as of this date are/were current. If anyone has any suggestions for any other additional web sites and/or links for reference, please feel free to post your comment and I'll update this blog entry.

Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 550+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics. In the event if you come across a broken link or a non-functioning link/URL, please post a comment and report the non-functional link. I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.

Please note: I do NOT represent or endorse any of these links nor do I receive payment for listing them in my blog.

CAVEAT/WARNING: Also, before you leave on your overseas trip, please inform the issuer of your respective ATM, debit cards and/or credit cards that you may be using their respective card in a foreign country and which foreign countries. Please provide your travel departure and return dates and the countries to be visited. Failure to do so may result in the debit or credit card charge being REFUSED by the establishment where you are attempting to use your debit or credit card or at an ATM machine!

BTW, it helps to have multiple ATM, debit cards and/or credit cards with you. One night at one of the bancomat (read ATM) machines, my wife's USA issued ATM card got "eaten" by the bancomat. It took over three weeks before she had received a replacement card. The reason for the delay was that a USA issued replacement card could only be sent to our USA address of record and NOT to a foreign mailing address. This may not be the same for your respective ATM card or credit card provider but for my wife's that was the procedure in place. Fortunately for us, we were able to use my ATM card in the meantime.

That's it for Wednesday, 17 March 2010: mercoledì, 17 marzo 2010
