Cash use in the UK

Against the global backdrop of cash use at Point of Sale the UK’s transition to a digital (payments) society is having a direct impact on the use of cash in the UK. 

Each week we publish an ATM Tracker that monitors the acquisition of cash via the UK’s ATM network operated under the LINK scheme.

Key observations for the week ending 7 March:

  • Last week ATM transactions decreased by 0.6 million (when compared to the previous week). 
  • Last week’s ATM transactions were 18.5 million less than the equivalent week in 2020. 
  • With the impact from Lockdown 3.0 continuing, weekly ATM use has reduced by 42% (compared to the equivalent week in 2020).
