How and where to get cash, and how much you can withdraw from various types of Nationwide account with and without having to show ID. With ID, you may be able to take out larger amounts.
Current accounts and savings
Daily withdrawal limits
How much cash you can take out depends on the type of account you have and where you’re making the withdrawal.
For joint accounts, each account holder can withdraw the maximum amount from their savings account in the UK, or their current account in the UK or abroad.

Cash machine charges
We won't charge you for using UK cash machines, but cash machine providers sometimes have their own charges. Check before using.
Credit card daily withdrawal limits
The minimum you can withdraw from a cash machine in the UK or abroad, or in a Nationwide branch using any credit card, is £10 per day.
The maximum amount each card holder can withdraw per day from a cash machine is £300.
The maximum withdrawal in a Nationwide branch is £500.
Branch counter and passbook withdrawals
Cash withdrawals up to £2,000
You can visit your local branch.
We don't need any notice. We should be able to offer this on the day.
Cash withdrawals over £2,000
We'll try to offer this on the day. But it depends on the amount of cash the branch has available.
To avoid any inconvenience, we recommend giving the branch at least 1 full working day's notice (Saturday is not a working day). Please allow an extra day for bank holidays or an extra 2 days when there is more than a day's bank holiday.
When collecting your money, please bring ID to prove your name and address.
