Credit Card

I was told you have a credit card that does not have all these international currency fees etc.
We fly to Thailand a lot and as of late our banks charge us way to many fees when we buy something or get cash out of ATM. We loose way to much so we want a new card and I was told you have a card with zero fees when you buy or get cash out. Please let me know.

Thanks for your question @MrAllanAnderson,


If you take a look at our Platinum range of MasterCard credit cards, you'll see they don't charge foreign transaction fees for online and overseas purchases. However it will still incur a $5 foreign ATM fee for transactions and charge purchase interest (being a credit card).


To avoid the foreign ATM withdrawal fee you could use either our Qantas Transaction Account or Rewards Transaction Account, however the 2.95% Foreign Transaction Fee will still be charged as per the following:

Overseas ATM Access Fee

There is no fee charged by Bankwest for any withdrawals using overseas ATMs. We will, however, charge a fee equal to 2.95% of the transaction amount for each transaction occurring outside Australia (whether in foreign currency or Australian dollars) posted to your account.

Hope this helps Allan!
