The ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Credit Card

If you think of yourself as something of an adventure traveller, you may have considered applying for a travel rewards card to fund your voyages and explorations. Designed to let you do just that, the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card may well be worth a closer look.

Providing a great introductory bonus points offer and an array of travel-related benefits, this card could help you earn points on your everyday purchases, to redeem against your next overseas adventure. Want to find out more?

What we love...

One of the things we love most about the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card is its introductory offer. If you apply for this card and spend $2,500 on eligible purchases within the first three months of card approval, you will be credited with 75,000 bonus Velocity Points to spend as you like.

Travelling on Virgin Australia and its partner airlines – which include Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Samoa, Air New Zealand, Alitalia, Delta Air Lines and Virgin America – those 75,000 bonus points could really take you places.

As for travel perks, this card has a few up its sleeve. As a cardholder, you can enjoy one complimentary return economy domestic flight and two complimentary single entry lounge passes, both with Virgin Australia each year. Simply spend $500 on eligible purchases on your card in the first three months to be qualified.

With this card you pay no overseas transaction fee on your overseas purchases, including online from international websites. Another thing which is very convenient and comforting to know is that if you need to withdraw cash from a branch or ATM located overseas using your ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card, you will not get charged a cash advance fee. ATM operator fees may apply.

And the card’s earn rate? Using the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card, you could earn 1.5 Reward Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases up to $2,000 per statement period, then 0.5 Reward Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases thereafter. You could be jetting around the world on those points in no time!

What’s not so great...

Taking a look at the small print, it’s a good idea to check the terms, conditions and eligibility requirements for all offers and features before you apply.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that with both the complimentary flight and lounge passes, there is a significant spend required to be eligible. However, if you were planning on spending on the card anyway, those extras can simply be thought of as a nice perk.

In addition, you should also look at the annual fees and rates of interest on purchases and cash advances to work out how much you will pay out on the card.

Why should you choose this card?

Aside from its earn rate and offers, there are plenty of other reasons why you might want to apply for the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card. For example, you could benefit from complimentary International Travel Insurance, Rental Vehicle Excess In Australia Insurance and no transaction fee on overseas purchases.

In terms of everyday use, the card also offers up to 55 days interest free on purchases, and compatibility with Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ and Samsung Pay™.

Overall Rating

A great example of a travel rewards card with a good earn rate, great travel-related perks, no overseas transaction fee on purchases and an excellent introductory bonus points offer.

Weird long name but great card for travel. I flew return Sydney to Perth with the free flight on Virgin. So worth the annual fee. Perfect for overseas travel with no foreign fees.

If I apply for the Reward Travel Adventures card in a branch (and have the necessary documentation) how long will it take to get the card issued?

    Hi Aubrey, it will take a bit longer than online. Could be some delays with sending the app through. Paper based form needs to be converted into the system. Online it goes in straight away. At this time of year it is difficult. I would still say around 5-10 working days. So it may not be issued until after the new year (if approved). Best of luck with your application.

    Hi Trent, it depends on the bills themselves, that is where they are from. Check out this PDF that provides full details on earning rewards points with this card. https://www.anz.com.au/content/dam/anzcomau/documents/pdf/anz-rewards-program-terms-conditions.pdf. I have grabbed this point. You will not earn Rewards Points on interest charges, premiums paid for ANZ Credit Card Insurance (ANZ Credit Card Insurance not available for new customers from March 17th, 2018), government charges, bank fees, payments made to the Australian Taxation Office or other taxation payments or duties, card account adjustments resulting from disputed transactions or otherwise, balance transfers or cash advances (as defined in the ANZ Credit Cards Conditions of Use) or transactions which are identified to ANZ by the relevant merchant or any intermediary financial institution as falling into one of these categories. Bonus Reward Points will not be earned in the Bonus Points Mall on the purchase of gift cards, GST or delivery and shipping charges.
