Banks and Ex-change Offices

Banks are open Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. until 3.00 p.m. and do have ex-change desk. Ex-change offices operate everyday between 9.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. and from 2.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.

Multibanco (ATM Machines)

The network offers a wide range of operations, some of them since the beginning, such as cash withdrawals and the consultation of account balances and transactions.

Throughout its lifetime, thanks to the special attention given to the needs of Bank Institutions and to the constant capability of technological innovation, new operations and functions have been introduced, some of them deserving a special reference due to the enormous acceptance they had near the public, such as payment of services, allowing the payment of the so-called “utilities” (water, electricity or gas supply, etc.) as well as mobile phones from different operators.

The maximum daily withdrawal limit is 200€; this limit is defined according to the normal standards of payment systems, with the purpose of user’s safety.

The withdrawal option can be temporarily out of use in any ATM machine. In this case a starting screen will show an image of a € bill with a dash upon it; the same type of information will be used if the counterfoils are not available.
