Can I withdraw cash abroad?

You can withdraw cash using your debit or credit card

Before you do, it’s worth checking:


1. What fees you might have to pay

You’ll need to pay a foreign currency fee for using your debit card abroad.

If you use your credit card, you’ll need to pay a cash advance fee and possibly a foreign currency fee as well.

2. How much you can withdraw

It’ll be the same as your UK limit, which depends on the type of account you have.

3. Which ATMs will be in the area you're visiting

You can use Visa’s Global ATM Locator to make sure there will be ATMs that you can use in the area you’re visiting. Other ATM networks might not accept your card.

Hints and tips:

When you withdraw money abroad, you may be asked if you want to receive cash in the local currency or pounds – choose the local currency, as this will often give you a better rate.

You can’t withdraw cash from your savings account

You can only take money from these accounts when you’re in the UK.
