Metro Bank, a newly launched high street bank in the UK, has joined the Link ATM network, to give its customers access to the entire UK cash machine network.

In addition, around 100 million UK-issued Link-enabled cards, essentially all debit and ATM cards issued by significant UK banks and building societies, can be used in the Metro Bank cash machines installed in their new branches, the first of which opened in Holborn, London, according to Link.

Edwin Latter, managing director of Link Scheme, said: “I am delighted to welcome Metro Bank into Link which opens up over 63,000 UK cash machines to their cardholders. No other scheme can match this breadth of access or convenience in the UK.”

Link is the UK’s cash machine network. Majority of the cash machine in the UK (free-to-use and pay-to-use) is connected to Link. Most of the UK’s significant debit and ATM card issuers are Link members.
