Look for an ATM that prominently displays the VISA, Star, Plus, or Mastercard logos. Be aware that foreign ATMs may charge both ATM fees as well as currency exchange fees, substantially increasing your purchase amount; Visa charges our customers a 1% fee for each debit or ATM transaction done internationally. Be sure to check with your travel adviser for any country-specific rules – some countries only allow PIN-based transactions. NASB does not track these countries, and they may not appear on our list of blocked countries.
As always, when using an ATM, be cautious and aware of your surroundings. If there’s a crowd around your preferred ATM, find another one. If the ATM is in a booth, do not allow anyone else in the booth when you are withdrawing cash; if someone else is in the booth, do not enter until they exit.
