Market Place ATM Is Now Charging - Cashzone

From the start of this week Cashzone who operate the ATM in the Market Place are charging £0.95 per debit card transaction.

We have asked Cashzone if they will reconsider the implementation of the charge, but unfortunately the response so far isn't encouraging.

As well as other free to use ATMs in Uppingham, cash in opening hours can be obtained from some retailers. Under the current circumstances you may want to explore the options before incurring these charges. » Less
