You can make unlimited free Visa Debit transactions in Australia, and you can link the card to Apple PAy, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. Beyond Bank won’t charge you overseas ATM fees, however it’s likely that the local ATM operator will charge its own fee. One fee to watch out for is the 3% international transaction fee on overseas purchases (or purchases made online from overseas sites).
Another benefit of this account is there are no overdrawn fees if you accidentally overdraw your balance, but it’s still best to make sure you’re not overdrawing your account very often.
