ATM experience in Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

We have used ATMs freely all over Europe and elsewhere, for years. On this recent visit to Scotland, we went inside the Royal Bank of Scotland, at what I think is their headquarters in the New Town in Edinburgh. After what seemed like the normal sequence, the machine said transaction cancelled and kept my card. I went over to a bank employee and explained my problem. No sympathy, no recourse. Only if I had an account at RBS, could something be done. Otherwise the fault was mine, either I'd stolen the card or my account was empty.

I then spent a long time on the phone to the US, including time on hold, cancelling my debit/ATM card and confirming that there was plenty of money in the account as well as a note about my foreign travel.

I never had a problem before, so must assume this was a one off. But I'm left with a very negative impression of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
