Need bank machine help

Hi. We were trying to take money from a bank machine. We need the plus symbol. We tried on via nationale near via Milano. When we inserted our card it wanted to do a cash advance and not a withdrawal. That was the only option given with our card. Can you suggest a better machine in the area of Cavour or nationale. Or is the cash advance the only option at machines here as we are using our bank card.

I used several machines that said "Cash Advance" instead of withdrawal. It came out of my account as a withdrawal and the machine even said withdrawal at one point after I had selected cash advance. I think it just isn't translated very well.

Yes, it is just the translation. It will be a regular withdrawal.

Agree with above replies. I do "cash advances" all the time. No worries...there will be no additional fees (as I think this is what you are thinking and worried about?- as is typical in the US when you do a cash advance). This is just a normal ATM withdrawal.

Thanks. Yes was worried about fees. We have the new bank cards that will work with visa but still takes money out of the account so was worried it wanted to do something different.

If you have only one bank account associated with the card, money will be taken from that account.

If you have more than one account associated with the card (maybe a checking and a credit account), the money will be taken from whichever account has been designated by your bank as the 'primary" account on the card.
