    Travel insurance is a joke!

    published

    I had a motorbike accident in Thailand about 3 year ago where i choose to upgrade to Altitude Gold to cover me with travel insurance.

    While being in out out of conscious and trying to deal with Westpac, after 2-3 days and a hospital bill over $30,000, Westpac wouldn't insure me due to having a one way ticket! I just pack my bags for 3 months and thought i would travel to different parts of the world!

    It's been 3 years and my leg isn't any better where the hospital in Thailand basically stop treatment due to no travel insursance where I won't go more into my nightmare due to Westpac! They basically left me for dead!
    Nothing, i can't believe they left me for dead!

    One way ticket, return ticket, BIG DEAL... it's just a dodgy way for Westpac to get out of paying for travel insurance!

    This card is useful, especially earning velocity points. I manage to claim rewards all the time. 2 return trips form Sydney to Brisbane was claimed just using my points. The travel insurance has manage to save me alot too when I travel, and I always have the peace of mind that i'm always covered if something goes wrong.
    Altitude points earned and then converted to Virgin Blue points. Complimentary travel insurance
    high interest rate. $150 Yearly fee

    This card is good overall but a bit expensive due to the high interest rate on purchases and cash advances. The annual fee is a bit pricey as well. I got this card at the time as the deal seemed better than any other banks at the time.
    The 10,000 bonus points for signing up was very good.
    Good styling.
    Easy to use website and payment system.
    Lots of bank branches if needed
    clear and easy to understand statements.
    High interest rate on purchases and cash advances.
    The extra Amex gold card is a bit uselessa nd just another card to carry around

    Contact the bank directly so they can confirm that for you

    I concur with Lachie_89. You also need to tell the bank/master card (Telephone number on the back of your card) that you are travelling overseas and intent to use the card overseas, otherwise they will block payment presuming it has been hacked.
