Pros & cons

What's good?

What's not so good?

At $0 p.a. you really can’t get a better annual fee.
Get 6 months at 6.99% p.a. on balance transfers.
You can transfer up to 100% of credit limit, which is unusually generous. Most banks max out at 95%.
Balance transfers revert to the lower purchase rate as opposed to the higher cash advance rate.
Purchases are charged at 11.95% p.a. This is very competitive.
The 16.95% p.a. cash advance rate is lower than normal, which is a good thing if you use cash advances with any regularity.
The 3.65% foreign exchange fee is substantially lower than what most banks charge.
Longer and cheaper balance transfers are widely available.
You can only add 1 additional cardholders, although the fee for this is $0 p.a.
Up to 44 days on purchases, which is a little shorter than the usual 55 days. Some even offer 62 days interest-free.

Reviewed and recommended by Cheryl on 26 Jun 2016

I love being a customer of BankVic having been with them since 1974. I am impressed with the low charges, customer service, and convenience.

I feel very comfortable using my card overseas as BankVic have an amazing fraud detection group, and within minutes of illegal use they are on top of it!
