Westpac Group is expanding access to fee free cash for customers with the announcement of a new agreement with Armaguard. The agreement will provide Westpac, St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne personal and business transaction account customers with fee free ATM withdrawals and balance enquiries at more than 1,700 atmx by Armaguard ATMs nationwide in the coming weeks. This includes more than 500 ATMs across regional, rural and remote locations.
This means the Group’s personal and business transaction account customers can now make fee free cash withdrawals and balance enquiries at around 7,000 ATMs Australia-wide; the largest combined fleet of fee free ATMs of any of the four major banks in Australia.
Westpac Chief Executive, Consumer and Business Banking, Chris de Bruin, said this new partnership builds on the bank’s strategy to offer customers more ways to do their banking.
“While the way Australians are banking is changing, access to cash remains important for some consumers. Through our agreement with Armaguard, we’re providing a significant increase in the number of locations where our customers can withdraw cash fee free and check their balances to help them stay in control of their spending, including in locations where we do not have a physical presence,” Mr de Bruin said.
“This is another significant investment in our customers aimed at expanding access and making it easier to perform their banking anywhere, anytime. Whether through digital and virtual banking, investments in our branch network like our co-locations, or through our valued agreement with Armaguard, we’re looking to the future to ensure customers can do their banking in more ways than ever before,” Mr de Bruin said.
