Your best banking options

Hey backpackers! πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Are you coming to the Huon Valley in Tasmania on a working-holiday? Then you need a place to bank your pay and take out money from home.

If you have not chosen your Australian bank, Westpac is a great choice for many travellers. Westpac partners with banks all over the world. It is part of the Global Alliance network of banks, which include popular banks like: Bank of America, BNP Paribas, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, ScotiaBank, and many others. This partnership will save you money if you belong to a partner bank in your home country. You can find out more here.

Another great choice is ING. If you put enough money into your bank account every month, then ING charges no fees for local and international purchases, worldwide. What a great deal! You can find out more here.
