Cost of using ATM's

Hello everyone. We are travelling to Brisbane in September and do not really want to carry a month's money. Our English debit card does not charge for foreign transactions but I know some foreign banks charge a fee for withdrawals. Does anyone know if ATM's around Brisbane charge for withdrawals and how much

Thanks

G'day flowercity,

The processes as you are aware is based on the agreements between the financial institutions. Those that do charge for non affiliated banks, typically charge AUD$2 per transaction.

Check on your banks website to see if they have an Australian bank as a global alliance partner. If they do, you shouldn't be charged any fees if you use that bank's ATM. Eg Barclays and Westpac are Alliance Partners so I pay no fees I n the UK when I use a Westpac card in a Barclays ATM.

Thanks I have asked the bank but the charges are low so I will not worry about it.

ATM's in 7elevens and petrol stations tend to have quite high fees, this includes the Travelex ones at the airports. All Australian ATM's will display the fee amount prior to finalization of the transaction allowing you to cancel if you wish. They are mostly around $2.00 so overall not extreme but it's still your $2.
