It Works, But Be Careful Going Abroad.

Posted by: Anonymous | Aug 7, 2011

I've had a checking account with a debit card from the Bank of Bennington for a very long time.
I notified them that I was going to Europe, mostly Germany and the Netherlands, in December of 2009. Bless my soul if I wasn't left stranded in Berlin with every ATM in the city denying my debit card!! I called my parents, freaking out about it, and they called the bank. What did they say? "Try more ATMs."

I tried every ATM walking three miles down Ku-damm, a pretty main street in Berlin. Every one denied me. Luckily, I met some really nice people at my youth hostel, and we went out to eat, my card worked as a credit card (approved, not denied, finally) and they paid me back in cash. I did this twice in Berlin.
I went back to Europe on a music tour in July 2010, and was only in Germany for about five days, but the same thing happened. I was prepared for it that time, and had gotten cash from an ATM in Belgium. It seems to be only German ATMs that have a problem with my card, but I didn't appreciate the lack of support from my bank the first time, when I was 17 years old and stranded in a foreign city.

Otherwise, I've had no issues using my account and am very satisfied with service from the Bank of Bennington.
