ATMs – Cash machines in Spain
There are numerous ATMs (Cajeros) in Spain and you can even find them in larger villages, although you shouldn’t count on this, especially in rural Spain. Spanish ATMs are very sophisticated and start by offering you a choice of language (usually English, French, German or Spanish). Instructions are easy to follow and self-explanatory.
Three ATM networks operate in Spain – 4B (the most common), ServiRed and 6000. You can generally use any ATM to access money from your account, although if the ATM you use isn’t the one linked to your bank the charges can be extremely high and will be linked to the amount you withdraw.
Some banks allow you to make so many withdrawals a month from before they charge you. Others are not so generous. Because of this, you may wish to consider opening a bank account with the bank owning your nearest or most convenient ATM.
As well as straight-forward cash withdrawals, some ATMs allow you to carry out a wealth of other transactions including paying cash into your account, consulting your balance or most recent movements, renewing your mobile phone card or even making theatre, cinema and sporting events reservations.
