Our verdict

Deposit your monthly salary into the Ultimate Access and get benefit from fee-free banking.

This account is suited to customers who make a large number of transactions and withdrawals each month. By depositing $2000 a month you’ll pay no account keeping fees and get unlimited free transactions including ATMs in Australia, EFTPOS transactions, electronic and BPAY transactions.

If you don’t think you can meet the monthly deposit requirement for this account, you could consider the Greater Bank Access Account instead which has no ongoing deposit conditions. However, it does charge some transaction fees.

Pros

  • $0 monthly account keeping fee
  • Free internet, mobile and phone banking
  • No transaction fees when you are able to deposit at least $2000 a month

Cons

  • Deposit requirement if you want to avoid fees

Hello Sarah!


Thanks for getting in touch with finder.


There is a 3.00% conversion fee for all international transactions. If your Ultimate account meets the required minimum monthly deposit you will not be charged the $5.00 foreign ATM charge.


Hope this clarifies. Feel free to leave a message should you have further questions regarding this.


Thanks,

Nikki
