lukegar has indicated that this thread is about Australia


I was wondering whether you are able to use an English ATM card (for example Visa Electron etc) in Oz? If this is not possible could anyone recommend any decent banks to use and how to open an account with them.

Hi Luke,
Yep, using your card will be no problem at all.
What you have to remember though is that your bank in the UK will charge you a fee (about £1.50 ish) each time you take money out, so take enough out so that you don't have to do it too often.

If you have a Nationwide flexi account you can use any ATM and there is NO charge for any transactions.So i would advise all travellers to use this account while travelling.
