Andrews Credit Union ATM card in Italy Does it work?

Jump to last reply

I am finalizing my plans for Italy and have decided in addition to one Visa based ATM card (which charges a 3% fee in addition to a $5 non Chase machine fee + a local ATM fee) I am going to take and use my newly acquired Andrews Credit Union ATM card. Has anyone ever used this in Italy with positive results?

I recently opened my account at Andrews CU to take advantage of their Chip and PIN Globe Trek Visa credit card and received a non-VISA Check Card ATM card issued directly from Andrews (has no logo only the name of the Andrews Credit Union on the front of it). My understanding is that there is a 1% transaction fee and an additional fee from the issuing ATM if the transaction is not done on one of the CU network machines.

Having not used this Andrews Credit Union ATM card before, has anyone used it and what was your experience like? Did it work? Did you have any problems using it since it is issued from a credit union and not a bank? Trouble finding an ATM that would accept it? It's networks are Cirrus, STAR and Co-Op network.

I have run out of time to acquire any other ATM card so others at this point are not an option. (takes to long in the mail for permanent cards to arrive -- leaving next week)
