LINK adds thousands of Post Offices to its ATM locator app

21 June 2019

Cash machine network provider Link has updated its ATM locator app to include thousands of Post Office locations across the country.

The app, which was originally launched in 2017, will now allow you to see both the location of all 62,500 LINK ATMs as well as branches in the Post Office network where customers can use banking services over the counter, including depositing and withdrawing cash for free.

This means you will be able to find the locations of 11,500 Post Office branches and an extra 2,600 ATMs.

The app shows you where your nearest ATM or Post Office is and has the ability to filter your search results.

For example, by finding ATMs that provide audio assistance for consumers who are blind or partially sighted and ATMs that will dispense £5 notes.

For the Post Office branches, the app also gives opening times for branches, so customers can make sure their visit is easy and convenient.

Mary Buffee, chief consumer affairs officer at LINK, says: “Millions of people rely on cash and for thousands of consumers, the LINK ATM app has been a handy tool for locating the nearest ATM.

"The Post Office allows customers to withdraw cash from their account, so it is sensible to integrate their network to the app so customers have more information at their fingertips.

“Consumer spending habits are changing, but it’s always good to know where you can cash out when you need it.”

Martin Kearsley, banking director at Post Office, says: “With 93% of people in the UK living within one mile of their nearest Post Office, our branches are convenient and accessible places for customers to pop in and withdraw and deposit cash, as well as check their balance, all over the counter.

“Being able to find the nearest branch, alongside the UK’s network of ATMs, is great news for our customers and postmasters alike; handy information for customers, and a great way of highlighting just one of the vital services our postmasters offer to their communities.”

The app is available to download free of charge on both the Apple and Android stores.
