Cash machines

Hi, anyone who has been there very recently have any problems getting money out of cash machines? A few friends have had probs in other countries just wondering if there's been anything in SB recently? I know you have to let your bank know sometimers you will be taking money out abroad, my friends did this and still had problems. Probably be fine..just a thought...

we just brought stirling cash with us this year as the rate was so good in july -2.31 lev to the pound, and, was even better when we came home. Changed at Crown exchange booths or the big Investment bank on corner on Flower Street.

We used our bank card the previous holiday with no problems - we only used the machine at the investment bank during opening hours , so that if it got "Eaten" we could go in and sort it out, but, thankfully this didnt happen. It happened to my friend when we were in Rome last year on a Friday night and she didnt get it back - was a nightmare.

I always use my bank card for withdrawls in SB. Use the ATM's opposite the Hotel Kuban on Flower St. This has an armed guard on the door so always felt safe. Have never had an issue ( touch wood )

You can only draw out 400 lev at a time which is usually plentiful.

We called the Halifax up before we went and told them we were going to Bulgaria, as we had heard thats its best to contact your banks.

They said its always better you do contact them and give them the dates because they do sometimes stop cards if they are used abroad due to suspected fraud

yea i used mine when away in august this year in sb and it was totally fine do let your bank know and ensure you have the cirus on your card otherwise it wont work we only used machines that linked off a beauru d change just in case there was any problems but it was fine you do get charged for using your card so its best to take out the 400 leva so you will have less charges the most we were charged was €4.50 at a time but it could add up if your taking small amounts at a time
