UBS Maestro card & 6 digit PIN in SE.

Hi There,

I read somewhere that a 4 digit PIN is necessary to withdraw money from an ATM machine in some countries. Had any EF member used a UBS Maestro debit card with 6 digit PIN to withdraw money from an ATM machine in Sweden?

Thanks in advance

Ashish

We had random success in Sweden. Ended up doing most of our transactions on credit cards....

What about changing the pin, if possible? Don't know about UBS but my Raiffeisen Maestro came with a 6-digit pin, I simply changed it to a 4digit one.

By random success, did you refer to 6 digit PIN.
I am interested in knowing if ATM accepts a 6 digit PIN

Thanks

Re: UBS Maestro card & 6 digit PIN in SE.

Nothing to do with Sweden but related........ my UBS maestro card (with 6 digit PIN) works fine at ATM machines in England (and it is usual there to have a 4 digit PIN). I did find however that in some shops (usually smaller, non-chain stores but also always Sports Direct) that it sometimes wasn't accepted as the transaction wouldn't go through.

Never tried in Sweden but several times in Finland and never had any problems at an ATm with my UBS Maestro card with a 6 digit PIN. In Finland the PINs have 4 digits.

Dear EF Members,

Once again, my question was <Had any EF member used a UBS Maestro debit card with 6 digit PIN to withdraw money from an ATM machine in Sweden? >.

I look for a direct answer related to the question.

Thanks

Ashish

Update: From my own experience, 6 digit UBS Maestro worked without any problems at a machine in Terminal 5 of the Arlanda airport (Sweden).
