ATMs and PINs

I just thought I should blog about this, as it’s bitten me recently: if you plan to use ATMs overseas, make sure your PIN isn’t too long to be accepted at your destination. For example, the maximum length PIN accepted by Australian and Japanese ATMs is eight digits. However, the maximum length accepted by Vietnamese ATMs is only six digits. If your PIN is too long, you’re out of luck. Also, there are many parts of the world where ATMs are only open during business hours. Don’t count on being able to get cash at all hours of the night.
