Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Morgan S., who wrote in to “get the word out about a potentially difficult issue for travelers who use Wells Fargo,” saying:
“After many years with no problems my Wells Fargo debit card no longer worked while in France and Spain. I finally got Wells Fargo to concede that ‘some international banks are not properly routing withdrawal requests to Wells Fargo.’ They don’t seem to be doing anything to remedy this and instead suggested that I get a check card and go into the foreign bank during their business hours to get cash, a complete rejection of the concept of a debit card that you can use 24 hours a day and without waiting in line in a bank. I’d like to get the word out that this is occurring, as a lot of future travelers could otherwise be in for an unpleasant surprise when they need cash.”
