I'm sure this is a common moan on here, but is anyone else having difficulty with their Aussie bank? We're with Westpac, the Central Mkt branch.
They're friendly and efficient enough, but my issue is access to my money. We have a considerable sum invested with them but because I have not got a job yet they will not give me a debit or credit card. Instead I'm left with something called a "handycard", which is anything but. Its not a card you can use easily over the counter and we're trying to avoid using our UK cards because of steep transaction charges.
Anybody else - who is not working yet - been given a better card by another bank? In other words could I get better access to my money with another bank?
Before I threaten to leave Westpac it would be good to know what the score is with the other banks first.....
