Telegraphic transfer vs overseas ATM withdrawal :Part2

One of the keyword to my blog yesterday was telegraphic transfer. So, once again I wanna share with you guys the entry that I actually prepared last week.

Based on bank currency converter, I found that overseas ATM withdrawal for Maybank card holder is more expensive even though faster with less transaction fee. Please refer the example in the following table.

AUD 186.37
Total transaction fee from Part 1

AUD  13.12
AUD  6.74

Please note that normally there is a difference between the bank currency converter and the converter taken from internet. For example the rate from several sources in the internet on 03/07/2012 is

      a) AUD 1=RM 3.2309  or RM 1= AUD 0.309509
      b) AUD 1=RM 3.2351  or RM 1= AUD 0.3091

Hopefully this info is useful for those who are traveling abroad.
