Betfair Withdrawal Time - Payment Options for 2024

Last Updated: 26 March 2024, Author:

Withdrawals from Betfair could be as fast as 4 hours using e-wallets such as PayPal and Skrill. Debit cards and bank transfers take 2-5 working days.

If you've managed to make a profit after using a Betfair sign up bonus code, you might want to withdraw your winnings back to your account rather than place any more bets.

Withdrawals need to be made back to your initial payment method to comply with Betfair's closed-loop policy, at least to the value initially deposited with that method. This is worth bearing in mind when choosing how to deposit to your Betfair account.

Betfair states a potential withdrawal time for bank transfers and debit cards of just 2-5 working days, but e-wallets are still the way to go if you want your funds fast as they'll be with you in around 4 hours.
