What’s a surcharge?
A surcharge – sometimes also known as a “convenience fee” - is a fee that the owner of the ATM charges a user to access their money. In Canada, ATMs that surcharge present a disclosure screen that appears before completing your transaction. At Alterna, we’re surcharge-free, and the surcharge is not an Alterna Savings fee - we don’t collect any portion of surcharges or convenience fees.
Please note that an Alterna account fee and/or ATM network withdrawal fee may apply, depending on your banking account package . Visit our Service Fees for more information about our banking packages and service fees, or contact us to speak with an Alterna representative.
And remember, no matter where you use your Alterna Access debit card, ALWAYS protect your PIN!
