The Old ATM Question Ally Bank Debit Cards in Europe today

Jump to last reply

Hello,

My friend and I will be traveling in Spain (Madrid and Galicia) and England (London and surrounding areas) next month.

My question is whether the Ally debit card is accepted by most ATMs in London and Madrid. The Ally debit card is MasterCard, but it does not have a Cirrus logo.

I know that Ally no longer reimburses ATM fees abroad. That's not the question.

My concern is whether the card works on all (or only some) ATMs in Europe. I would particularly like to hear from people who have traveled with the Ally card in the past two years or so, but all advice is welcome.

It would be a major hassle to get to Europe and find that my card didn't work. (It happened once before with a major US bank card. It wasn't fun.)

Thanks,
