0800 number for UBS?

Hi all, I need to make a large cash withdrawal from UBS to buy our car tomorrow, but I can only take 1k a day. According to the website, anything larger, I have to go to certain branches in Geneva and Zürich. Surely not, huh?
In that case, is there a 0800 number for UBS to arrange the withdrawal from Bern, because if there is, it is well camouflaged on their website. All I can find are the head offices in ZH and BS.

Edit: NVM, eventually found an 0848 number ££££££

Re: 0800 number for UBS?

can you not use a cash machine in a ubs branch and withdraw more, I've taken more the 1k out of a machine at a time.

on ours at least, thats the maestro limit, if you use you card in a ubs machine then it doesn't count that as part of the limit.

Re: 0800 number for UBS?

OK, using the number so helpfully supplied by Grynch , I found out the maximum daily withdrawal with a Maestro card is 5k at a UBS machine. 2 visits then.
