A cheque account, access or transmission account provides easy access to your money. Most accounts provide access via a bank card and ATM, Internet access to manage your account and over-the-counter help. There are a range of traditional cheque accounts such as Basic Accounts, Student and Youth Accounts, and Family Designed Accounts to share money.
Having a transactional bank account allows you to receive your salary directly into your account, manage your money, pay your bills easily and to access your money when you need it. When comparing which transactional account may be best for you if you are switching your bank account to a new bank or opening a new account - take a closer look at the fees the bank may charge you to access and use your account. The types of fees vary from a fee for each ATM withdrawal to a fee charged for printed bank statements. The most common fee to compare is the standard monthly fee the bank will charge you for keeping your account open.
