Not sure if this is in the right place . . .
But, I have noticed that when I withdraw cash I get a receipt that gives the following amounts
Each with a small amount alongside.
I interpret this to mean that there is only a set amoung available and authrorized for me to withdraw . . . but this amount is a fraction of my actual account balance. Why is this? If I want to buy a high value item - say a fridge or something - how can I do this with my debit card? Or if I want to withdraw 500 euros cash for a spending spree (not that I do but just in case) . . . how can I access my own money?
I'm a bit confused, and if anyone could shed some light that would be helpful. It would be a nuisance to have to go to the bank itself to withdraw money. (Is it just a way of controlling the cash economy?)
Thanks for your help.
