Metal card in an ATM

I’ve had issues with metal cards getting stuck in an atm. Happened twice. Do metal cards actually work in atms. Beats the whole idea of free international cash withdrawals.

I’m sure it can happen but, I’ve travelled a lot with Curve since 2019 and used many ATMs in many countries without issue. Probably worth complaining to the issuers of the ATMs you used.

If a metal card warps, that’s a real issue. A plastic card will have the ability to be bent into the correct shape.

Yeah that’s understandable. My card however on both occasions were brand new and used at the ATM within days of receiving them. Both banks were UK based (Lloyds and Barclays). I’ve lost confidence in them now tbh. I’ll just use the card for contactless and find another for international atm withdrawals.
