What You Should Do To Your ATM Card Before You Travel Overseas
Running out of cash while travelling overseas is a predicament we know all too well
You could be well prepared, assuming there's enough cash to last the entire trip.
But nobody wants to be stingy right? Especially when the trip was all you were looking forward to the entire year.
So you spend... and overspend.
Of course, there's the credit/debit card. But what if you need to purchase that cheap bag from an auntie who doesn't accept card payments at a flea market?
Cash and loose change are often required to get food and drinks from stalls and vendors too.
For Maybank account holders, you can activate your ATM card via the Maybank2U app or any Maybank ATM machines in Malaysia.
Do note that RM12 will be deducted from your account for every cash withdrawal made overseas.
For more information, head over to Maybank's official website or drop them a line at 1-300 88 6688.
To enable overseas cash withdrawal, CIMB users can opt for activation through the CIMB Clicks app, CIMB ATM machines nationwide, or call the customer service centre at 603 6204 7788.
Under its ATM Regional Link, CIMB enables users to withdraw cash without incurring extra charges across the company's ATM network across Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and Cambodia.
Unlike Maybank and CIMB, Public Bank users won't be able to apply for overseas cash withdrawal through an app. Users can have their cards verified at Public Bank ATM machines or by calling the self-service terminal centre at 603-2179 5000.
As expected, there will be a small service fee per transaction.

Hong Leong Bank
