How can I avoid ATM fees with my Australian debit card?

You can use the ATMs owned by your bank to withdraw money for free. For example if you're with Greater Bank, you can access all Greater Bank ATMs for free. But did you know you can also access Big Four bank ATMs for free if you've got an Australian debit card?

The Big Four banks have removed the fees charged to customers of another bank when they use their ATMs. This means if you've got an Australian bank account with a debit card (like any of the accounts in the table above), you can use it to withdraw cash for free at all CommBank, ANZ, NAB or Westpac ATMs across Australia.

Other ways you can avoid ATM fees

Find a bank account which doesn’t charge ATM fees

The ING Orange Everyday Account, ME Bank Everyday Bank Account and Macquarie Platinum Transaction Account do not charge for ATM withdrawals at any ATM in Australia. These accounts are free to open online.

Use an partner ATM

Make sure you’re aware of your financial institution’s partner ATMs and you never miss out on an opportunity to make a free withdrawal. For example, CBA customers can also use Bankwest ATMs for free. And St.George customers can use Westpac ATMs fee-free.

ATM locator tools

Financial institutions all have tools on their websites and mobile banking applications you can use to find the closest ATM or branch where you can withdraw for free.

Cash out over the counter

Woolworths, Coles, McDonald's, Shell or BP, major supermarkets, petrol stations and large retail chains will let you get cash out over the counter when you make a purchase. This comes in handy when you want to withdraw less than $20 minimum available from ATMs.

Choose a bank with lots of ATMs

More ATMs means less walking, so the size of a banking network is a selling point is you often withdraw cash. To offer more for their customers, financial institutions have formed partnerships to provide different ATM networks. In Australia, Commonwealth Bank operates Australia's largest ATM network of more than 4,000 Commonwealth Bank and Bankwest ATMs. This is followed by Westpac, NAB, ANZ, Citibank and HSBC. Meanwhile, credit unions and building societies will often use the rediATM network.

  • Commonwealth Bank and Bankwest. More than 4,000 ATMs (domestic).
  • Westpac Group. More than 3,000 ATMs (domestic). More than 50,000 ATMs worldwide (Global ATM Alliance).
  • Citibank. More than 3,000 ATMs (Westpac Group domestic). More than 20,000 ATMs worldwide (Citibank international).
  • HSBC. More than 3,000 ATMs (Westpac Group domestic).
  • ANZ. More than 2,600 ATMs (domestic).
  • Suncorp and Bendigo Bank. More than 2,000 ATMs (domestic).
