Details

The ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures card is aptly named as it suits people who like to travel the most. It comes with a pricey annual fee of $225, but you can offset this by taking advantage of one complimentary return flight every year within Australia, no international transaction fees and complimentary overseas travel insurance. Right now, you can also collect 75,000 bonus Velocity Points when you spend $2,500 on eligible purchases in the first 3 months of approval.

This is a card suited to you if you like to fly and want to accumulate ANZ Rewards Points which you can redeem for Frequent Flyer Points or Airmiles. You can earn 1.5 Reward Points for each dollar on eligible purchases up to $2,000 per statement period. This can also be transferred to Velocity Points at a transfer rate of 2 ANZ Rewards Points for 1 Velocity Point; an initial minimum of 2,000 ANZ points is required to redeem. You can also take advantage of one complimentary return economy domestic flight operated by Virgin Australia and two complimentary Virgin domestic lounge passes each year. Additionally, you could also be eligible for complimentary insurances that cover you when travel (overseas travel and medical insurance, interstate flight inconvenience insurance and rental excess cover) and shop (extended warranty insurance, best price guarantee scheme and 90-day purchase security insurance).

With this many benefits and bonus Velocity Points on offer, the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures card is a good deal for you if you fly frequently and want to collect points without paying unnecessary international transaction fees. However, ANZ Rewards Points can't be redeemed for Qantas Frequent Flyer points, so if you're a Qantas member take a look at ANZ Frequent Flyer cards as they allow you to earn Qantas points.

Complimentary return flights are great

published

Not often you can get 1 x return ticket within Australia for $225 so it is really handy. The rewards points are pretty good especially if you wait for bonus points on transfers to Velocity.

Great card with great travel benefits

published

I really like this card because the fee is low given the benefits. You get a return domestic flight every year, as well as free Virgin lounge passes. When I signed up they had a deal where theres no annual fee for the first year as well as 100k Velocity points, so it seemed crazy not to sign up. I have actually kept the card beyond the free period just for the benefits.

Excellent card - only if you travel domestically

published

I signed up through a 75,000 points bonus promotion which makes the card well worth it in the first year. The bonus points are Velocity points, but the points earned per dollar is in ANZ points.

The annual fee is quite high at $225, but worth it if you travel domestically at least once per year. The only annoying thing is needing to book 60 days in advance. I personally would prefer a $225 voucher to spend on flights so you could also use on international (though I understand others will see more value in booking east-west coast flights).

All in all, an excellent card and highly recommend if you can get value out of it.

Good Card! Great Reward Airfare for a Cheap Price

published

Great card. Got the card with the annual fee of $225 and this included 2 Virgin Lounge passes and a return airfare to anywhere in Australia

This was excellent value and I will continue to use this for the airfare. So far haven't used the card overseas but am satisfied with the rewards available. Though the low points rewards is somewhat of a drawback for spending significant amounts on the card. Other cards would be better suited for more substantial expenditure. Redeeming points is fairly easy and can be completed on the ANZ rewards website.

Dont even bother!

published

ANZ trying to attract customers with the points and benefits but not worth the hassle. Service is very bad. Card was delayed multiple times. Lots of different messaging from different customer service streams. Did not arrive in time for my international holiday which was the whole point of the card. Cannot set or reset pin online. Had to go into a branch to show identity documents.

Annual fee well spent :)

published

Get ANZ points when you use the card for payment, which is very standard for a credit card with annual fee. I like the card with the fact that I can redeem for return tickets for a domestic flight with Virgin. Redemption needs to do on a phone, I thought it would be hard but indeed it was easy. Be reminded to check fight schedule before you call, from my experience, some flights in good timing in near future were not available, given that fact that you needed to book it at least 60 days before, so plan ahead. So far I think I love this card.

Good if you need to fly domestic every year.

published

The annual fee is $225 but it gives you one return domestic flight plus two Virgin lounge passes. You cannot sell the flight and you will need to book two months in advance. The point scheme is pretty ordinary at 1=$1.
It will be good for someone like me who need to travel domestically once every year. It will be even better value if you are travelling during school holiday or public holiday when the flights aren't cheap.
The downside is you need to book two months in advance by calling ANZ (no online booking) which is a bit of hassle.
So unless you need to travel, I dont see a big merit to this credit card.

Great credit card for use overseas/when travelling anywhere!

published

Great card, reasonable fees and excellent extras (insurance, one free domestic flight on Virgin each year, points etc). Best part is no overseas transaction fee! I use this card when travelling or when making any purchase in a foreign currency.

Great signup bonus and free flight

published

75,000 Velocity points sign up bonus is pretty good, plus you get a free return flight which totally offsets the annual fee. I found the sign up process and organising a direct debit somewhat difficult - you had to go into a branch which seemed unnecessary. But overall worth it for the bonus points.

Has made such a difference to how we operate our household finances!

published

This card is awesome! The cost of the card is negated by the free flight each year. Use the card when purchasing overseas for $0.00 currency conversion. Apple Pay works great and have set this up to use with 2 people, that saves the extra cost required for an additional card holder.

Great card with great incentives

published

I was able to grab a good deal on this card. I used it overseas and found it the best way to shop in Thailand. You aren't charged any unnecessary fees and the exchange rate worked out better than cash. The velocity rewards allowed me to travel business class. The only thing better would be so that you can accumulate velocity points quicker.
