    Default Best atm card for overseas?

    If you've been overseas recently, what card/bank dogs you use? I want to pick the cheapest one obviously, the array of fees and charges is amazing!

    Hi @Gothel we have a 28 degrees credit card throug GE that we use overseas as they do not charge fees for international transactions. I cant remember what other fees they charge but whenever we go overseas we use a cash passport and credit card combined. Even though you get charged fees, its the peace of mind not carrying around large amounts of cash that make these appealing. Hope that helps

    We used a Travelex prepaid card. Was awesome. There were some fees but it wasn't ridiculous and we bartered with them for a really great exchange rate.

    Good luck! Traveling is so fun but also really hard to organize.

    We used the Commonwealth bank travel cards as we already bank with them and it was pretty simple to link to your netbank incase you needed to top up. It was free to put the initial amount on the card but I think there was a fee for any more deposits. There were some fees but they were very reasonable. We used the card itself to make purchases and also at ATMs. I have also heard really good things about the travel cards you can get from Aus Post. GL, have a great trip wherever you are going. x
