Expert review

This transaction account is ideal for both day to day use here at home as well as when you’re travelling. It has no monthly account keeping fees and Citi charges no overseas ATM fees or international transaction fees either. Usually banks charge an international transaction fee of about 3% of the transaction value when a currency conversion is required, so not being charged this fee is a really big benefit of this account.

Keep in mind that the local ATM operator may still charge its own fee when you use an ATM overseas.

Another perk that not many people know about is all Citibank debit and credit card holders are eligible to get a free bottle of wine when eating out at select restaurants, thanks to Citibank’s Dining Program.

Key features

$0 Monthly account keeping fees

This account has no monthly account keeping fees, ever.

Free linked Debit Mastercard

The account comes with a linked Debit Mastercard that allows you to make purchases wherever Mastercard is accepted all around the world and online. The debit card has PayPass, so you can simply tap your card on the payment terminal without entering your PIN for purchases under $100.

    Can I use a Citibank Plus Everyday Card at ATMs in Peru?

      Hi Sonia,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, you may use this card in overseas ATMs like in Peru. Please note that if you’re using a non-Citibank branded ATM overseas, then the ATM operator is likely to charge you a fee. It’s important to note that this isn’t a Citibank charge and is out of Citibank’s control.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    I will be hosting an International student for the next 2 years. They are not Australian residents and on arrival will be 16 years old. Can they open a Citibank Plus Everyday Account? If not, is there a Citibank account suited to them available?

      Hey Anne,

      Thanks for leaving a question on our page!

      It’s mighty generous of you to host international students! The Citibank Plus Everyday Account can be used by your visitors however they need to be 18 years old and above to apply. Also, as of this time, there are no available Citibank savings accounts for under 18 years old.

      There are some other options they can consider and you can refer to this page. It lines up the different types of savings accounts your students can open when they arrive in Australia or even when they are still in their respective home countries.

      As a friendly reminder, review the eligibility criteria, fees, interest rates, and terms & conditions of the account before applying. You may also contact the insurance provider should you have any questions about their policy.

      Hope this helps! For any further questions, feel free to reach out to us again, we’re here to help.

      Best,
      Nikki

    What is the meaning of “exchange rates” when talking about using Citibank Plus Everyday Account debit card overseas for ATM withdrawals?

      November 27, 2018

      Hi Ania,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      The exchange rates mentioned on this page is when you use your Mastercard debit card attached to this Citibank Plus Everyday Account overseas and convert the purchased/transaction payment from the country’s local currency to AUD. For the Citibank Plus Everyday account, the Mastercard exchange rate is used at the time of transaction. This exchange rate has a commission built into it, which means that you don’t pay any additional fees on top of the rate.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Maureen,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      This account could be used overseas without incurring overseas ATM charges as well as Eftpos charges. So you should be good using it in India and Sri Lanka. Hope this helps!

    I can see there is no charge for international ATM withdrawal fees but just wondering if there was an international currency conversion fee for the Citibank plus everyday account.

      Hello Ellie,

      Thank you for your comment.

      For Citibank Plus Everyday Account, they don’t charge any international transaction fees – so if you’re purchasing something overseas or shopping online from a non-Australian retailer website, you don’t need to worry about any fees.

      Regards,

      I am confused by what is meant by
      “There is a fee charged when you transact in a currency other than AUD. This means that you are charged a conversion fee for transactions involving a conversion of currency.”
      So, if I have AUD in my account and I purchase something while traveling in the UK in GBP does this attract a fee? Doesn’t this involve a conversion of currency?

      Hi Terry,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      Yes, other accounts normally charge conversion fees when transacting overseas. However, the Citibank Plus Transaction account is excluded from any fees when transacting using foreign currency. So you don’t have to worry about being charged for a conversion fee when you purchase something during your travel in the UK.

      Hope this information helps

      Cheers,
      Arnold

    What is the daily limit for withdrawal from ATM or for EFTOS transaction when overseas?

      Hello Kim,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Citibank Plus Everyday account is a debit card that has an unlimited withdrawal with a daily maximum limit of $1,000. This is already combined withdrawals and purchases made when you enter a PIN through ATM or EFTPOS.

      You can have your daily max limit change if you wish to request it from Citibank. I hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn
