Importance of phone numbers in POI files

 

As I work on my Bank of America POI file I have been noticing a lot of branches that are "Temporarily" closed. Also, there are now a number "Remotes" that are no longer open 24 hrs.

This is when the phone number listed in the POI comes in handy - at least for branches when you need to actually go into the bank. Calling ahead before you make a detour on your trip can save you time and gas. All the branches still have an ATM available 24-7 (I think), so if you just need cash, it shouldn't be a problem.

You can also use your smartphone and go to the BoA locator web site

https://locators.bankofamerica.com/

that will locate the nearest branches and/or ATMs with the access info.

Travel safely and wisely.
