more on your ATM card getting blocked

Jump to last reply

Last year I called my bank (US Bank), told them the dates I was going to Scotland, and when I got to Glasgow my card was blocked until I called them and verified that I indeed was trying to get out Pounds (just like I had told them when I had called them two days prior).

This January I called US Bank and told them the dates I was going to Mexico, and I actually did get cash from an ATM at the Cancun airport - - and then they blocked my card so I couldn't use it again till I called them.

Today I called and told them my dates for my next Europe trip, and was told, "Your card might get blocked anyways, and here is the 800 number to call," (not that 800 #'s work from Holland).

Is this the "norm", or is this just a primitive bank? Can anyone recommend a bank with a system that will not block your card when you try to get cash even when you have told them precisely where you will be on specific dates?
