ATM card blocked in Brazil

Jump to last reply

I searched but could not find current information on this. I've been told by my bank that due to increased hacking and scams, they totally block their ATM cards in Brazil. Their suggestion was to use credit cards and get cash advances. I don't mind using a credit card for hotel/restaurants but I don't like to get cash advances (never have) and am not sure what kind of fees/interest will be added.

Any suggestions on how to deal with this apart from taking a couple of hundred dollars to exchange for cab and similar expenses? Thanks.
