I had to ring them at 1-2am US time (while drunk) to sort it out. They did after putting me on hold a few times and hanging up on me.

I came home to a nice phone bill...

Regarding the OPs first message. He is indeed incorrect. The cash machine network is only going to be down on 5th and 12th October between 2am and 7am. I was walking past a Nationwide machine in Hammersmith this evening and had a quick look.

That's good news - it was so quick I didn't catch the times, just the dates. Panic over.
And thanks for the tips about letting them know I'll be abroad - I hadn't thought of that.

I bet it will end up getting blocked even though I have informed them that I will be travelling over there.
