Re: UBS Bank Card

Hi,

the maestro card needs to be enabled on UBS online to be used outside CH.

Re: UBS Bank Card

In some countries the bancomat only reads 4 digits for the PIN, while we have 6 digit PINs.



Try in the bancomat of the largest bank you find, e.g. HSBC.

Did they actually display the Maestro symbol? Although it's related to, and the symbol looks very much like Mastercard, many banks abroad do not accept Maestro cards at all.

And as previously mentioned, there are some/many parts of the world where you'll get completely stuck if you use a 6-digit PIN, which I know is possible on some Swiss cards (although I've never used it). Be handy to take along your card reader when travelling, to change it to a 4-digit one if you encounter this issue.
