I've heard that the ATMs at the CIC sometimes offer Stückelung
, starting with
notes, but I've never used those myself, and I don't know if it's available at all their locations. ATMs at the BNP usually offer some vague options ("mostly
notes" or "a mix of the two"). I don't know if other banks have similar options.
Thanks for your detailed answer
. If there is time left, I'll try to visit as many ATM's as possible with my Dutch card
. I'd visit up to 5 banks. After some quick search on Google Maps I made a list of the banks which have a branch (and hopefully a working ATM on July 14th
) in Sarreguemines. Which of these banks listed below could give the best results (in terms of notes available and option to choose notes):
mentioned as quite a good option and I had one good experience in Paris myself
no idea for what this stands
(on Google street view there was a Crédit Mutuel lettering outside on the photo)
-Crédit Agricole de Lorraine
these agricultural banks seem to be regionally divided.. Does anyone know whether they also differ in terms of choice of notes etc.?
one try in Paris some years ago; but no choice. Have they changed/has anyone experience with this bank (maybe I did domething wrong when I was there)
Yes in some CIC ATM it's possible to choose but not in my city for example
Caisse d'Épargne and Crédit Agricole also gave the possibility to choose just
or "mix of the two" !
Really??? Two years ago, I visited the C. d'E. in Versailles. No choice of notes (and I was lucky to withdraw 230€, otherwise I would have probably received
only had I chosen 250€
). Apart from that... The staff at that branch did not speak any English at all and somehow wasn't very helpful to give me an envelop for an UNC note I did not want to put in my wallet where it would be folded
At least I'm going with my brother who speaks French and banks would not be open anyways whether it's July 14th or a "normal" saturday, I'd say
