ATM withdrawl limit explained - Argentina
All the backpackers and a few motocyclists I`ve met moan about being able to withdraw a maximum US $100 from ATMs in Argentina. Just to give you some heads up on the situation, as I understand it.
I have two cards, a VISA and mastercard. The mastercard has no problem, I have withdrawn $1400 pesos once, no probs. Also the debit card system for this is `Cirrus`, two circles on the back of your bank debit card.
Visa however have a policy restricting the withdrawl amount - not the Argentinian banks. Why, I don`t know. I just know with a VISA or a debit card with the `plus` system you will likely face this limit.
I have never before seen any advantage to having two credit cards. This is it... or rather an advantage to having a mastercard.
Just a heads up,
