ATM limit using a UK debit card?

Anybody know what the limit is for taking cash out of a US atm machine using a UK debit card...

I get paid while we are over there and may get a bit of cash out as a back up if needed.

Is it a set limit or are all banks different.

Thanks

Actually i may just pay with the card if needed as its a visa debit.

Your financial institution determines the limit, check with them.

I find a debit card so unsafe. It's direct & immediate access to your funds. Credit cards offer more protection to the user.

Losvu is correct. The daily limit on what can be withdrawn from an ATM is set by the card issuer. It will most likely be the $US equivalent of what you can withdraw in Sterling at home but there's a chance that your bank may work things slightly differently for overseas transactions. Check with them if you still need to know.

The limit is your daily ATM withdrawal the Bank has set on your card. Check with your Bank and they may increase your daily withdrawal limit ....if you want to!!!

Please take another card with you. I work in a Bank and each day we receive calls from customers from all over the world who have just taken one debit card and no credit cards. Many of the calls are from Vegas, stuck without funds because the hotel swiped their debit card while checking in and put a hold on all their funds. Or ATM swallowed their card, or they have lost their only one card they took with them.

Barrassyard I know you travel to Vegas regularly so you already know the above, but just posted it for first time travellers to Vegas.

Also we found the best ATMs at fashion show Mall, forum shops or CVS store, much cheaper than the Casino ATMs

I always take minimum cash (like $100) and draw money out whilst there. I think the most I have withdrawn in one go is $500. That's on my current account with a debit card and on my Caxton FX card. Like others have said, it depends on your bank.

Don't forget to ring your bank before you go and tell them the dates you will be in the US. That way there is less likelihood that your card will be declined. Also, make sure they have your mobile number in case they do have a problem with a transaction.

I know it's more expensive with the fees but I just don't like carrying a lot of cash and cannot be bothered with travellers cheques.

One of the biggest things to remember is to tell your credit card or bank that you will be in las vegas from to whatever dates so they know its you out there using the card etc and they wont mess you around when you are out there.like blocking its use.have a great time and get lucky with your gambling!!
