Withdrawing EUR overseas - current, savings or credit account?

Hi,

I have a BankWest Debit MasterCard linked to my Qantas Transaction account. I understand I do not get charged for using overseas ATM's.

When withdrawing EUR currency from an overseas ATM should I select to withdraw from the current account, savings account or credit account? Also, when prompted should I select to make the transaction in EUR or 'continue to withdraw in AUD'?

Hi @jaseblenner, to use your card overseas you'll need to select the credit option as cheque and savings will only work within Australia.

Please be aware that while your account waives Overseas ATM Fees, the foreign transaction fee of 2.95% per transaction will still apply. These will be charged whether you choose AUD or EUR, so this would depend on what your personal choice.
