    Thank you May,

    But which ones are Macquarie Banks home network? If I use a Redi ATM will this incur fees?

      Hi Christine,

      Thanks again for your comment.

      As I mentioned in my previous comment, any Westpac, St.George or BankSA branded ATM are Macquarie Bank home network. Other than these brands, you may be charged ATM withdrawal fees.

      As for using the rediATM, their partners’ cardholders can use any of the 3,000 rediATMs across Australia without receiving a direct charge fee. I’ve sent a link to your email for the list of the rediATM partners.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May

    When banking with Macquarie which ATM can I use that will not attract fees?

      Hi Christine,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      To avoid unnecessary ATM transaction fees, you should use ATMs that are part of the Macquarie Bank home network including any Westpac, St.George or BankSA branded ATMs where transactions are free and unlimited.

      On the other hand, if you need to use an ATM that is not part of the home network, Macquarie Bank does not charge for this. But you may be charged directly by the ATM owner at the time of the transaction.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May
