One more... when I was in Japan in 2009 the ATMs at the 7-11s allowed for fee free withdrawals using my NAB debit card, and I had little trouble finding a 7-11 when I needed one.

When I rented a car from AVIS in Chicago they snuck in a clause into the rental agreement that stated that they would charge any foreign card in the currency of the country where it was issued. Not sure if you can even opt out of that clause, I only noticed it after I got to the car. In any case, it's a nice way for them to make some money on the currency conversion at your expense, seeing as their rate of exchange is unlikely to be better than the bank that issued your card. Most Australian banks will still end up charging you a foreign transaction fee just for using your card overseas, even if the transaction was in AUD... unless you had the good sense to use a NAB Gold Visa debit card :)

In Montréal Desjardins, Banque Nationale, and Banque Laurentienne don't charge a fee for withdrawing cash from their ATMs using my NAB debit card.

In Chicago Citibank didn't charge a fee for withdrawing cash from their ATMs using my NAB debit card. According to the ATM there are only four or five states where they do charge a fee from international cardholders (NY being one of those states).

In New York City I found two banks that didn't charge a fee for withdrawing cash from their ATMs when using my NAB debit card, Sovereign and TD Direct. The rest charged around $3 per withdrawal, Wells Fargo charged the most (though I don't remember how much).
