Can I use all ATM's?

I have a British switch/maestro/cirrus card but it is not a visa/mastercard card. Can I use all ATM's to draw dollars? Am I going to find any problems?

Yes you can use it - you will be charged by your bank though.

yes you can use atms however not only might your bank charge you -the bank you use may charge. There usually is a sign posted and/or before you make the withdrawal a screen will appear letting you know the charge.

I've just used a Nationwide cashcard at HSBC machines in NYC to withdraw cash and wasn't charged by HSBC (to my surprise I have to admit!)

Lou..LOL. It worked out brilliantly for us and their credit card is great as well...no charge for conversion!

I got charged by the HSBC for using my card abroad (in one of their cash machines!) and then charged a conversion fee which they hide in with the exchange rate!

there are cirrus machines all around,

one problem with the maestro card is that you can not use it over the phone to book thinds like show tickets in many cases.
