When you choose a bank, you’re also choosing an ATM network. One way to avoid fees is by only using ATMs within your bank’s network. To expand their service range, many banks are combining ATM networks to give you more options. Instead of looking at how many ATMs an individual bank has, try comparing their networks as a whole.

Here are the largest ATM networks in Australia:

ATM security tips

  • Be aware of your surroundings when using an ATM.
  • Don’t allow anyone to observe you entering your PIN. Cover the keypad with your hands whilst you enter your PIN.
  • Be aware of ATM card skimming. Criminals collect your details from the magnetic strip located on the underside of your card.
  • Pay attention to all of the touch and action points on the ATM so you can see if the machine has been tampered with.
  • When shopping and paying via EFTPOS, keep an eye on your card at all times.
