When I input major Malian or Mauritanian cities on my route like Bamako or Kayes, Mali or Nouadhibou or Nouakchott, Mauritania into the VISA ATM locator I get "No ATM locations were found within 60 miles/100 kilometers based on your search. Please try another search." but when I input Senegalese cities it finds ATM's.
Is it possible that ATM's that folks saw in times past have been removed or deactivated? Is it possible ATM's that folks saw were merely locally accessible ATM's that could not be used with a foreign bank card?
