ATM - maximum cash withdrawal

Jump to last reply

What is the maximum amount of cash allowed per withdrawal in ATM machines when using a foreign ATM card in France and Spain and the UK? My gut feeling is that it first depends how much is allowed with your own bank at home. But my bank actually allows approximately 2000 euros of withdrawal per day but I have a feeling this is not the case for the ATM machine in France and Spain and the UK (eg: I don't think the machine will give me 2000 euros even though my card/home bank allows it). When I lived in Austria about 10 years ago, I remember only being able to withdraw 400 euros each time but I don't remember if it is because of my home bank limit or the local bank limit. The last thing I want to happen is if I punch in 1000 euros, then the bank spits out 400 euros (because 400 euros is the machine's limit) but then I get charged 1000 euros on my account because I punched in 1000 euros for withdrawal.

Appreciate if you can share your experience.
