    I am a Westpac customer holding a Mastercard. I’m heading overseas for 4 months. I would like to know if the Westpac Lite card is a good option to help avoid foreign transaction fees and ATM withdrawal fees.

      Hi Bruce,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      Yes, If you use the Westpac Lite overseas or online with an international retailer, you won’t have to pay a foreign transaction fee. Although, you have to pay 2% for Overseas Cash Advance Fee.

      Hope this information helps

      Cheers,
      Arnold
