Foreign currency transactions with your Bankomatiko+

Foreign currency transactions from your Savings Account with your Bankomatiko+/Mastercard debit card

Important Notice: Using your Savings Account for foreign currency transactions with your Bankomatiko+/Mastercard Debit Card:

Starting in June 2024, when you use your Bankomatiko+/Mastercard debit card to purchase an item online or at a store (using the Point-of-Sale terminal) in a foreign currency (excluding NAf., AWG, USD) and choose your Savings account for the payment, an extra 5% will be added during authorization to cover currency exchange fluctuations.

The following exclusions apply:

  1. ATM Transactions: The foreign currency fluctuation percentage of 5% does not apply to ATM cash withdrawals from your Savings Account made with your Bankomatiko+/Mastercard debit card.
  2. Specific Currencies: The foreign currency fluctuation percentage of 5% is not applied to purchases made in NAf. (Netherlands Antillean Guilder), AWG (Aruban florin) and US$ (United States Dollar).
  3. Checking Account Transactions: This percentage does not apply when selecting Checking Account for purchases in any currency, made with the Bankomatiko+/Mastercard debit card.

The foreign currency fluctuation percentage is applied to protect against currency rate fluctuations:

  • This percentage covers potential currency rate changes between the time the client makes a purchase (Hold) and when the transaction is finalized (settled) in the client’s account. After the transaction is processed, any difference between the initial authorization amount (including any percentage changes) and the final settled amount will be adjusted in the client's Savings Account.
  • This foreign currency fluctuation percentage helps ensure that transactions made by our clients are not adversely affected by currency exchange rate changes.

Alternative payment option: Please note that you can easily and immediately transfer funds between your own accounts with MCB Mobile Banking. Click here to register for MCB Mobile Banking.
