Summary of the changes

Effective 1 December 2020, the following air travel benefits associated with the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card account (previously available per account year where eligibility criteria had been met) are no longer available as a feature of the account:

  • One complimentary Virgin Australia domestic return flight
  • Two complimentary Virgin Australia domestic lounge passes

In recognition of the changes, the annual account fee for the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card has been reduced from $170 to $65. The $55 annual Rewards Program Services fee will still apply, therefore the total annual account fee will be $120.disclaimer

These changes became effective on 1 December 2020. For existing eligible ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card account holders, the last date to book your complimentary flight and lounge passes was by 8pm on 11 December 2020.

ANZ continues to review our products and as a result, we're making changes to the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card account benefits to reflect those benefits that may be most relevant to many of our customers.

No, ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card account holders will still be able to enjoy complimentary insurances, concierge services and a flexible rewards program.

ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures account holders also have access to no ANZ overseas transaction fee on their purchases, for both spending overseas and online purchases from overseas merchants.

There are no changes to when your annual fee will be charged. From 1 December 2020, the next time your annual fee is due, the lower annual fee will automatically be applied and this will be reflected on your statement.

To find out when your next annual fee date is, please call 1800 824 433 (Mon to Fri, 8am to 8pm AEST).
