Key features

The Youth Transact account from WAW Credit Union is available to Australians aged 13 to 25, so it could be a good student bank account option for those in school or university, or other young Australians starting their financial journey. 

Like most bank accounts the Youth Transact account doesn’t come with a monthly fee, though there are some costs that anyone travelling abroad will want to be aware of including the $3 overseas ATM withdrawal fee and the 2.75% foreign exchange commission. 

Speaking of ATMs, withdrawals in Australia can be made for free using either the rediATM network or an ATM from one of the big four banks (ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB or Westpac). 

Account holders will be issued their own Visa Debit Card which can be used for purchases made in-person and online. The card can also be linked to an Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay account, which means users can pay using their phones.

Who is it good for

The lack of a monthly account fee and the digital payment options available mean that the WAW Credit Union Youth Transact Account could be a flexible account option for younger Aussies aged 13-25.

Any catches

Just remember that if you do need to take the card with you on a trip overseas, the $3 overseas ATM fee and 2.75% foreign exchange margin may come into play.
