ATM card


Dear Michele,


I'm unclear about the meaning of a statement in your book that to use an ATM card in Ireland one needs a 4-digit PIN number.


I have always used a 6-digit number.  Does this mean I can't use the card or need to make some special arrangement with my bank?

Kevin,


I would definitely call my bank if I were you.  I recently was in Ireland and used my ATM card, but I have a 4-digit PIN number.  Worked just fine!


Good luck,


Jojo

Kevin,


Some ATMs in Ireland will accept 6-digit PINs. However the majority of them require a 4-digit PIN. The PIN should be numerical as letters may not be displayed on the key pads of the ATMs. You can take a look at these pages for more info: http://www.irelandyes.com/money.html & http://www.irelandyes.com/tips.html

I called my bank and they told me that the ATM machines in Ireland will accept the first four digits of my 6-digit pin.


Hope that's true!

Kevin,


Just got an email from Bank of Ireland reiterating that ATMs in Ireland require a 4-digit PIN. I hope your bank is right. Maybe you should have back-up plans just in case.
