Australian households spend $4.3 billion a year on bank fees. How much are you paying?


Are you sick of paying bank fees?


Australian households spend $4.3 billion a year on bank fees. And last year, we paid around $518 million in ATM fees.

How much you’ll pay and when you pay depends on how you use your account and even how much money you have. Common transaction account fees include:

  • ATM fees (especially for using another bank’s ATM)
  • international transaction fees
  • monthly account keeping fees
  • internet banking fees
  • branch fees.

Let’s say you get cash out once a week. If your bank charges you $2.50 every time you use another bank’s ATM and adds a $5 monthly account keeping fee, you could be paying $15 a month in fees.

Do you care about bank fees? Or do you consider something else when choosing a bank?
