Banking abroad is more than just using your card at an ATM or using Point of Sale. So, when you travel abroad and you want to perform any transaction, you must know how to avoid paying bank fees, eliminate foreign transaction charges, and get a good exchange rate. If you do not, you will discover that your bank will have a field day deducting fees for banking transactions. In line with this, Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency shares ways you can reduce bank charges when you travel abroad.
Eliminate ATM fees
ATM fees can really add up because while travelling, you will probably withdraw money from an ATM. Of course, you already know that ATM fees vary around the world. With this at the back of your mind, you should get a bank in the Global ATM Network. This is a network of large banks that have removed fees and allow for free ATM withdrawals.
Some bank customers in the South-East have urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to compel commercial banks to urgently address challenges facing transactions with ATMs at weekends and national public holidays
The customers made the appeal in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday while expressing frustration, anger and anxiety due to the poor performance of the ATMs in banks during the long Eid-el-kabir holidays.
In Abakaliki, there were long queues at many ATM points during the holidays due to network failures and cash shortages.
NAN reports that customers were seen shuttling from one bank to another in efforts to make withdrawals.
But bank officials attached to the ATMs declined to make comments.
