ATM Direct Charging Fees

Following a review by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), from 3 March 2009 ATM Direct Charging will be introduced at all ATMs across Australia.

ATM Direct Charging will now mean the fee charged for using an ATM will be displayed and charged by the ATM owner at the time of completing a transaction at their ATM. This ATM Direct Charge will then be displayed as a separate item on your account statement.

(1) ING Direct has no own brand ATMs. They will instantly rebate the transaction fee for any ATM withdrawals within Australia, if you deposit $1000+ per month into your Orange Everyday from an external account. From from 1 March 2018 you also need to make at least 5 card purchases using your ING debit or credit card (excluding ATM withdrawals, balance enquiries, cash advances and EFTPOS cash out only transactions). ING will also rebate international ATM fees if you meet the above criteria.

(2) EveryDay Transaction Account has 15 Free ATM transactions per month. Subsequent transactions incur a $1.50 fee.

(3) NAB ATMs located in Coles Express service stations are or have been transitioned out of the rediATM network.
