  • Axis Bank Credit Card Cash Withdrawal

    Credit card cash advance or cash withdrawal is a facility provided by banks to give the credit cardholders access to cash that they can withdraw using their credit cards during times of crisis. This facility is offered by most banks in India. Almost all the Axis Bank credit cards come equipped with the cash advance facility. However, the bank puts a cap on the amount of cash that can be withdrawn using a credit card and it also varies from card to card. The charges levied on using this facility, which is commonly known as the finance charges, also differ according the type of credit card an individual opts for. Let us take a detailed look at this facility, the benefits that come along with it as well as the charges it attracts.

    Axis Bank Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Limit

    Cash withdrawal or cash advance limit is the amount of cash the cardholder can withdraw using a specific credit card. Cardholders can withdraw cash using their credit limit within the set limit.

    Axis Bank sets different cash advance limits for different credit cards. The cash limit on a particular credit card is communicated to the cardholder at the time of delivery of the card. Also, for a few cards, Axis Bank prefers to keep the cash limit to zero for the first 180 days from the date of issuance. After the completion of this period, the cardholder is allowed to avail the cash advance facility.

    Axis Bank Credit Card Cash Advance Fee

    Axis Bank, like most other banks in India, charges a cash advance fee. This is a transaction fee that the cardholder needs to pay each time they withdraw cash using their credit card. This fee will be added to their credit card bill in the following statement.

    Axis Bank charges a cash advance fee of 2.5% of the amount withdrawn or a minimum of Rs.250 (whichever is higher). For instance, if the cardholder withdraws Rs.1,000 using their Axis Bank credit card, they will have to pay Rs.250 as the cash advance fee in the next billing cycle. However, if they withdraw Rs.15,000 using their Axis Bank credit card through an ATM, they will have to pay Rs.375 as the cash advance fee in the next billing cycle. However, Axis Bank holds the right to change the cash advance fee any time.

    In addition to this, cash advances also attract a finance charge from the date the amount is withdrawn using the credit card till it is repaid in full.
