ATMs in Netherlands

Jump to last reply

There was a thread late last year about US bank cards not working in cash machines in the Netherlands as of the first of the year because the do not contain chip & PIN technology. Does anybody know if that is indeed the case?

I'm headed to the Netherlands first of April and was able to obtain a US credit card that has chip & PIN (issued by Chase, the British Airways version, no foreign transaction fees but $90 annual fee). I'll use that for larger purchases, I don't really want to use it to get cash because I don't want to pay the cash advance fees.

My Mastercard debit card with a magnetic stripe has worked in Europe in the past to obtain cash from an ATM, but I'll probably get more euros in advance from my bank if it's clear that it won't work this time around.

Thanks in advance for any info on this subject!
