    Visiting the Czech Republic for the first time in July - wondered how reliable the ATM's are for obtaining local currency with a Visa Electron Card.

    Please email me or PM me.

    Many thanks

    I can't imagine you would have any problems. I never had a problem taking money out from an ATM using my American bank card.

    Ahoj Pat! I visited Prague in March and I, like Sigma, had no problems obtaining money from local ATM's. I used a bank issued VISA/debit card supported by the "Cirrus" network.

    Enjoy Prague !!!

    Hello Pat

    Just returned myself within this week and, like you, was bit nervous about the issue of ease of ATM convenience, etc.

    Not a problem at all; they are scattered quite nicely, and I believe that the daily allowance for withdrawal is around 8000 Kc/daily.

    Hope you have a great trip next month! you're going to be thrown into the throng of tourists

    For those who have used their ATM card in the CR...

    Does it matter if it is a credit or debit card? Every now and then (not often, thank goodness) I've encountered businesses that can't/don't accept debit cards.

    Do the ATM's take either type?

    I used my Debit Card fine but my bank charged me £1.75 per transaction - either using am ATM or paying for good in a shop.

    Yikes! :shock: Thanks for the warning -- I'll ask about that before I leave home.
