the service ATM

He Brazil wake up! Banks wake up! 2013, with the games and the Olympic at your door and so much trouble to get money from a ATM. After 20 days, more than 20 machines and I had to borrow money. And I am not the only one, so many around complain of the same problem. I was ready to leave the country!!! The only country on 120 I had a similar problem was Ethiopia....?????!!!!!

1. Re: the service ATM

it is always best BEFORE traveling you TO ASK your bank TO UNBLOCK your card for use in BRAZIL ;-)

this is especially the case for travelers from the European Union.

here in Salvador we rarely have problems with ATM machines except sometimes by the end of the weekend or during a strike of banking personel ...

the best ATM's are found at Banco do Brasil (1000R$ per card per day limit, HSBC or Bradesco only allow 600R$ per day) with the lowest cost.
