Using my debit card overseas

Can I use my Bankwest debit card in the USA? Should I select credit rather than savings or cheque when withdrawing money? Am I able to find out which banks will accept my card?

Hi @davmori, thanks for your enquiry.


When overseas you’ll need to be selecting the "Credit" option on your card at an ATM or EFTPOS Terminal, as Savings and Cheque aren't available. There are also a few ATMs that don't accept MasterCards unfortunately, so it's also best to check that you can see the MasterCard symbol prior to attempting to withdraw funds.

You can also take a look at the ATM locator on the MasterCard website to find terminals in which MasterCard is accepted Smiley Happy Just be sure to check for any fees that may be charged by the other bank prior to withdrawing your funds, as Bankwest is not aware of these.


Hope this helps!
