New app helps you find nearby ATMs

LINK has launched a free app to help people find nearby ATMs. Connected to LINK’s ATM database, it shows the location of all 70,000 LINK ATMs.

The app was developed with the support of Thomas Pocklington Trust – a national sight loss charity – and features voice over technology for the visually impaired. Search result can be filtered: for example to find ATMs that dispense £5 notes or by bank. Users can set alerts to remind themselves to get cash out from a machine.

John Howells, LINK’s CEO said: LINK is committed to financial inclusion and the independent LINK Consumer Council has been fully behind this exciting initiative.

“Cash remains an essential part of our lives and is still the most attractive payment option for many of us in lots of situations.

“The new, free app will make finding an ATM more convenient for everyone and, with its search filters, make it easier for vulnerable consumers to draw out their cash safely, and for anyone who wants to find ATMs that dispense £5 notes.”
