How much money can you withdraw from an ATM? Maximum cash withdrawals for UK banks revealed – The Sun

CASH machines line town centres across the UK, allowing shoppers or bill payers to withdraw much needed funds easily.

There are approximately 53,000 ATMs in the country currently and most withdrawals come from free-to-use machines – though it's important to check, as some will charge you.

But more Brits are inclined to use cards for payments nowadays.

After a rule change rolled out on October 15 last year, shoppers can now make contactless card payments of up to £100.

That means for big ticket spends they can stick to using their card easily, without having to thumb through cash.

Some are still reluctant to physically dip into their pockets too, ever since covid restrictions discouraged the paper form of payment.

But for all the things you do still need to withdraw notes for, here's how much you can get out from each bank.

Plus, how it compares to withdrawing your money over the counter.

Each branch is different and their charges, if any, will vary between names and locations.

Your own account balance is a key factor too, and some banks have higher limits on withdrawals than others. Take a look.

How much can you withdraw from an ATM?

Lloyds and Halifax

You can withdraw up to £500 a day from a cash machine.

The maximum amount of cash you can withdraw over a branch counter at Lloyds or Halifax is £2,500.

You can take out more over the counter if you have pre-ordered the cash though.


For most Nationwide accounts the maximum amount you can withdraw per day is £500 at an ATM, but you can get up to £2,000 in branch.

To do this you might have to pre-order to make sure the bank has enough for you to withdraw.

Otherwise you'll only be able to get £500 in branch too.


The bank says there's no limit to how much money you can withdraw over the counter in its branches as long as you've got enough in your account.

You might have to give the bank a day's notice if it's over £2,000 though, so the bank can check it has enough to give you.

Otherwise customers with personal current accounts can take out up to £300 per day from an ATM, while Premier and Platinum accounts can take out up to £1,000 per day.

Barclays Business accounts can take out up to £750 per day and BarclayPlus account holders can withdraw up to £50 per day.

Foundation, Select, Reward, Silver or Platinum account holders can take out up to £300.

If you have a Black account, the limit is £750 a day.


Regardless of what account you have, the limit for withdrawals from TSB is a maximum of £200 each day.
