hello,

i just need some help. i will be heading to manchester and have confirmed with my local bank i could access the atm's in england which has cirrus and plus logos. i was informed by the officer (through phone) that certain atm's requires a 4 digit pin number, some 6 digit . when i questioned further, an answer could not be given. my concern is, would this mean there'll be huge inconveniences to look for an atm that requires 6 digit pin?

Hi there,
I'm not aware if there is a difference in machines.
The UK and most other nations debit/credit cards have a four digit pin number.
To be honest I've never heard of a six digit pin number for a debit card.

A 6 digit pin? NEver heard of that one before . Here it is standard practice to have a 4 digit pin.

There are plenty of ATM's here where you can withdraw money from, most have the Cirrus logo on. I suppose if you have 6 digits with your card then when you come here it will still be your same 6 digit No.

Where in Manchester do you intend to visit??

Enjoyy
