From July 2019, ING no longer offers international money transfers to its customers in Australia. If you want to send money overseas, you'll need to use a third-party transfer service instead.

But if you're planning on using your ING debit card overseas, you'll still be able to. Read on to find out what exchange rate you'll get.

ING's exchange rate on international transactions

If you're using your ING card overseas, you'll be getting the Visa exchange rate. You can see what today's rate is on Visa's site, but keep in mind that ING adds 2.5% on top of this for all international transactions.

You can avoid this, however, by meeting the account's conditions. These include depositing at least $1,000 and making five card purchases each month. As part of this, you'll also get back any ATM fees, both within and outside of Australia. This means that you'll still be charged the ATM fee when you're overseas, but ING will rebate the money within five business days.

Sending money overseas

Previously, you could send money overseas with ING via its partnership with OFX. This meant you'd be getting the exchange rate OFX offers, which you can read more about in our review of OFX.

However, since July 2019, this service has been discontinued. While you won't be able to send money overseas through ING anymore, there are still plenty of other options. You can check them out below and compare each of them on the amount your receiver will get at the end, as well as transfer speed and exchange rate.
