UK Bank Notes

Postby Parilla » Fri May 13, 2016 4:02 pm

Barclays on Main St in Gibraltar used to have an ATM which issued only UK notes, not Gibraltar issues. Now Barclays have shut up shop, does anyone know if there is similar ATM elsewhere on the Rock for UK notes only ?

Thanks Katy. Checked and they are still open so I'll give them a try.

I used the wrong machine in Gib some time ago, when I realised my mistake I went inside to the cash desk and they swapped the Gib notes for sterling notes at no cost.

Nat west machine outside Morrisons. If out of order and you have to use the other machine they will change the notes at customer services if they have them.

In case it's useful to anyone else, Katy was right on the ball about the Nat West ( 0n Line Wall Road) - they still have 2 ATMs, one dispensing just UK notes.

Thanks, Parilla

Purely out of curiosity, why the need for UK notes? Gib ones are worth exactly the same.

I think this has been discussed before, and it was agreed that Gib notes can be paid into a UK bank account. Their value is £1= £1.
What about in Spain? Are Spanish banks / bureaux de change that pedantic / political that they won't change Gib notes? (The OP gives location as San Pedro, not UK)
