Visa ATM for Euros

Hi

We will be traveling with a prepaid Visa travel card which will be loaded with both pounds and euros.

We will withdrawing pounds from the ATM at the airport on arrival to give us some local cash.

My question is do local ATMs also have the option to withdraw euro (which we need later in our travels)

Thanks

Welcone,

If you cant find one, you can check the post office. Some said they give better rates. Note i only used to buy BPS.

Good luck

Well, you can't use €'s in the UK (except in a few places in London!).

What other countries are you going to where you will need to use €'s?

Believe it or not, these countries also have ATM's, so you will be able to withdraw €'s from ATM's in these countries when you get there!

There are a few ATMs in London where you can withdraw Euros, including several in and around St Pancras station.

Yes I was planning to use pounds in London.

Yes I do believe it that these countries have ATM machines...

My question was whether it was a possibility to withdraw euros from certain ATMs in London.

"My question was whether it was a possibility to withdraw euros from certain ATMs in London."

There is no need to withdraw €'s from an ATM in London. You will get a better rate in the countries that you are visiting, so use ATM's to withdraw €'s in the countries that you are visiting.

The rate isn’t applicable as the travel card already has euros loaded, which we will be withdrawing.

I have seen several ATMs in London that dispense €€.

There is one just outside the Putney Bridge Tube station (April 2018), one in the Piccadilly Circus tube station (2017) and I have seen them in T3 at Heathrow.

I would take a wild guess that there is at least one in St. Pancras Train Station too.

Here is an article from 2014 about TFL partnering with a Bank to put Euro/Pound ATMs in 70 Underground stations.

As I said previously, I have noticed them still in two stations recently.

This shows a picture of the machines.
