    A quick note to warn others:

    When using a Telebanco ATM in Spain we were charged €30.60 for withdrawing €300.

    Caxton who responded immediately as usual informed me: The merchant or ATM would/should have asked you if you wanted to pay in sterling instead of the local currency. When processing a transaction in sterling on your card, the retailer/ATM converts the transaction at their own exchange rate and, generally, you will lose out.

    Infact - the ATM did ask me and I ignored it as I assumed I was withdrawing Euros :Doh: You need to ask for in Euros ONLY.

    Never mind I won the Bingo last night!:cry:

    That is extortionate. Cost nearly half your winnings. Take it you'll be playing again on Sunday and hoping for similar luck at Bingo.

    This isn't just a Caxton issue. You need to be careful with any card.
