No more ATM s ?

Just copied the message below from another site: can anyone tell me if there is an ATM machine in Koycegiz, Ortaca, Dalaman or Marmaris that give GBP please....

Hi all, just heard from a friend that you cannot get GBP from any ATM machines in Fethiye, and that the Turkish government have made this happen. Has anyone managed to get GBP from any of these machines in the past couple of days?

Does anyone know if there is any truth in this? If it is true, then I suspect there will be many many people having to think of plan B as they live on GBP from their UK pensions which they pull out of ATM machines to put into their Turkish bank accounts. How stupid and ridiculous would that be if the government here have indeed done this.

Re: No more ATM s ?

Can you get TL out of an English ATM? or USD for that matter? Many people transfer money from one account to another using internet banking. You can do the same in the branch if you are averse to internet banking.

Re: No more ATM s ?

There is an HSBC ATM machine where you can withdraw GBP in Ortaca. I have to say sometimes that is out of order, and yesterday it was not dispensing GBP. However the IsBank ATM in Dalyan was working and issuing GBP as normal.
It may be some issue with agreements between "foreign banks" but certainly, as I said, the IsBank machine was working as normal.

Re: No more ATM s ?

Also, it seems the Turkish Gov. have stopped the use of Turkish credit cards being used to make international purchases and also I believe with Debit cards.
I found this out when I tried to re-new my account with Jaquie Lawson cards last week. Because the payment was in dollars it would not make the payment.

I had to go to HSBC and explain. The guy did something or other on his computer with my card and said "It is OK now, you can use it for international payments. The Gov. brought out a new law Jan 1st stopping int. purchases"

Got back home went on the comp. and did the transaction, no problem.

Re: No more ATM s ?

Maybe not being able to withdraw sterling has something to do with the new 5 and 10 notes, they are having this problem in Egypt because the old ATM's need to be changed/updated to accommodate the new notes. Hopefully it will be a temporary blip. xx

Re: No more ATM s ?

Here in Didim, we have never been able to withdraw anything below 20, Akbank does multiples of 20 only and HSBC does multiples of 50 only

That restriction was due to come in last year but was delayed due to the short notice given. It is not restricted to international purchases it is for all internet purchases, including Turkish shopping sites, using both Turkish debit and credit cards. Your bank should have notified you that if you wanted to continue with any type of internet shopping you needed to notify them by text message using a code included in their message, or visit the bank.

Re: No more ATM s ?

At the moment it is just HSBC Bank that is doing this, so far other banks still seem to be dispensing pounds....
