Visa Debit card / ATM issues in Lake Louise

Jump to last reply

On arrival at Calgary airport, we attempted to get cash at one of the ATM machines in the car rental area. The transaction was denied and/or unable to complete. We didn't think too much about it and went on our merry way.

When we arrived in Lake Louise, we headed for the nearest ATM and again were denied. This was getting frustrating. Found another ATM, again denied. Called our bank - they didn't see where any transactions had been attempted or denied. Come to find out, NONE of the ATMs in Lake Louise take VISA debit cards but they do take MasterCard. I found that quite strange. Thankfully, we did have our credit card and just charged dinner, but we felt SO helpless without cash.

So be aware that if you're heading to Lake Louise with a VISA debit card, be sure to have CDN in pocket before you arrive because you won't be able to access cash through the ATMs.

Once we arrived in Jasper, we had no problem locating an ATM that accepted VISA debit.
