Both Major and independent ATM networks (within Australia and overseas) may charge a fee for cash withdrawals and balance enquiries.
With the shift towards digital payments and a decline in cash use within Australia, many of the Major Banks are increasingly divesting their non-branch ATM’s by selling them to providers who employ a direct charge model for the use of their ATMs.
For example; ATM machines branded atm-x, Precinct, Redi, CashCard, and some ATMs situated inside pubs, clubs and hotels will likely charge a fee for their use.
You should check the ATM owner’s fees that apply carefully before completing transactions. Within Australia, you will be advised of any fees that will be charged prior to completing the ATM transaction. You will be able to cancel the transaction if you do not wish to proceed and no fees will be charged.
All your EFTPOS transactions are free, though please be aware that some retail merchants may charge a fee for Visa card transactions.
You can also use your Visa debit card to withdraw cash at most supermarkets free of charge.
