Fees

Fees (these may change) Amount
Annual fee $0 annual fee in the first year (currently saving $30). $0 annual fee in subsequent years - when you spend $10,000 or more on purchases in the previous year using your card.
Foreign Transaction Fee

A Foreign Transaction Fee is payable as a percentage of the Australian dollar value of any Foreign Transaction. The percentage will vary depending on the applicable credit card scheme:

  1. Transactions in foreign currency
    • Mastercard®: 3.0%
  2. Transactions in Australian dollars and the merchant or financial institution accepting the card is located overseas:
    • Mastercard®: 3.0%

Note: It may not always be clear to you that the Merchant or entity processing the transaction is located outside Australia.

Cash advances/Withdrawal fee

An administrative charge of 2% of the value of the transaction will apply to each cash advance made on your card account, where your account has a negative (debit) balance after the transaction has been posted to it. A minimum charge of $2.50 and a maximum charge of $150 will apply.

Where your account has a positive (credit) balance after the transaction has been posted to it, only a charge of $2.50 will apply.

These charges will appear on your credit card statement directly below the relevant cash advance.

Missed payment charge $15 may be payable each statement cycle that the whole of the minimum monthly payment is not paid by the statement due date. If charged, the Missed Payment Charge will be debited to your account.
Over-limit fee If your card account was opened before 4 June 2012, a fee of $15 may be debited from your credit card account every time you exceed your credit limit during a statement cycle. It is debited from your account in that statement cycle, on or after the day(s) your credit limit is exceeded. This fee may also be charged whenever your account is over limit at the commencement of a statement cycle.
Balance transfer fee A balance transfer fee of 1% of the transferred balance(s) will be charged to the 55 Day card account on the same day these balance(s) are debited to the account.
Non-Westpac Group ATM fee Although not a Westpac fee, using your card in a non-Westpac Group ATM may result in a charge to you. Avoid this fee by using one of Westpac’s extensive network of ATMS across Australia (including any St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne ATMs) . Find a Westpac Group ATM.
Credit card surcharge In some instances, businesses may administer a ‘surcharge’ for credit card payments. Usually, these are a percentage fee of your purchase amount. Ask the merchant if a surcharge applies and how much it is before paying if you’re unsure.

Rates

Transaction Interest rates
Purchases 20.09% p.a. (variable)
Cash advances 21.49% p.a. (variable)
