Italian Banks have ATM’s/Cashpoints in almost every main street in Italy and every major shopping centre. As you may already be aware it is important to know if you are a tourist or visitor to Italy which bank network (interbank network) certain banks in Italy are a member and how to lookout to see the interbank network of an Italian bank. If you are not aware than you maybe asking why?
The reason is, Italian Bank ATM’s are only setup to support the advertised bank networks displayed on or near the ATM’s. This is important for a tourist who will be carrying and trying to use their foreign bank card in the Italian bank ATM. Knowing the compatibility between the tourists’ bank network back home and the Italian bank will save time by trial and error and lower the security risk by exposing your bank card to multiple ATM’s/Cashpoints.
We have collated a list of accepted cards and advertised bank (interbank) networks of selected Italian Banks and their ATM’s below. We hope this can assist in your efforts of using Italian bank ATM’s/Cashpoints.
