Might have to find a bank if the ATMs didn't work! New replacement card before leaving would solve it ...

Thanks for the suggestions. I travel quite a bit so I am always prepared with multiple forms of currency. I do wear a money belt with some US emergency cash. I bring multiple credit and ATM cards and I usually convert some money to local currency prior to leaving the US so that I can be absolutely sure that I can at least get a cab to a bank or hotel from the airport when I land. In the past, I have also carried travelers checks as a possible form of convertible currency.
