Today I’m bringing you two links, one for those of you who use VISA, and one for those of you who use MASTERCARD. These sites are ATM Locators, and are quite helpful, especially if you are traveling and need to get some money from your credit card (or debit card – seeing as most debit cards are also either VISA or MASTERCARD.)
Let’s start with the http://visaatm.infonow.net/bin/findNow?CLIENT_ID=VISA 
I was way more impressed with this one. You have more options right off the bat like searching by Landmark in the US, and the engine changes per country you are searching in. So you get only the options you need. You can also search Airports on this site as well.
Besides the 24hr ATM option, this site includes drive through ATMs and ATMs that are handicapped accessible. You can also find ATMs through your Financial Institution—for those of us with debit cards. I know I’ll be using that function of the site.
I was also impressed to see that the site had a section of tips for safe usage of an ATM card. It had a lot of helpful tips like “Common Sense Usage” tips, Tips for U.S. Cardholders when Traveling Abroad, and many more and is definitely worth a look. Here’s an example: “International ATMs may save you money. Withdrawals are dispensed in local currency and are debited from your account in U.S. dollars based on a favorable exchange rate.”
It’s always great to find helpful sites like these two, enjoy!
