Rates and Fees

 


Withdrawals and Telegraphic Transfers

Pay $0 Citibank fees for any overseas ATM or in-store transactions when the currency you are withdrawing is the same currency of your account. Where the currency you are withdrawing is different to the currency of your account, a 2.5% ATM foreign exchange fee will apply.


ATM foreign exchange fee

A foreign exchange fee of 2.5%, will apply if you withdraw money from an ATM and the currency withdrawn is different to the currency of the account. Any fees will be applied when the transaction is completed and will include any additional ATM operator fees and charges that may apply.

Helpful tip: to avoid the ATM foreign exchange transaction fee withdraw currency that is the same as the currency of the account. For example, if your debit card is linked to your Australian Dollar currency account and you withdraw Euro, the ATM foreign exchange fee will be applied.

To select the currency account you are withdrawing from, simply switch the account your debit card is linked to via Citibank Online or the Citi Mobile app.
