"Credit cards and ATM's" United Kingdom Warnings Or Dangers Tip by lou31

United Kingdom Warnings and Dangers: 157 reviews and 128 photos

The one and only thing that went wrong for me was losing my credit card. Luckily I had a second one.
Rule number one...don't use any free standing machines at places like bus stations, airports etc, and in my case Tourist Information Centres!
The machine was faulty and the bank really could do nothing. Free standing machines are serviced by contractors so there isn't any chance of someone opening it up for you.
So always use a machine outside a bank that is OPEN!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
