The truth about rates and fees and nothing but the truth

For starters, we'll show you how to avoid many of them
There are some fees you need to be aware of. The good news is, most of these can be avoided. We'll show you how.

Be one step ahead and pay less interest
The sooner you can pay off your account's balance, the less you pay in the long run. That means you can use your money for something better than interest. And thankfully our rates are really competitive.

Here are the rates you'll pay for your Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card.

Annual Fee $129
Purchase Rate 20.74% p.a. 
Balance Transfer Rate

2.9% p.a. for the first 6 months6, reverting to the cash advance rate after 6 months, currently 20.99% p.a.

Cash Advance Rate 20.99% p.a.
Additional Cardholder Fee $39

Get to know the fees you can avoid
Unfortunately there are always some charges you'll need to pay as some fees can't be avoided. The good news is that most can, so here's a few suggestions to help you avoid them.

Fees you can't avoid:

  •  
    Annual fees and additional card fees are something you have to pay. You'll pay your annual fee when your card is approved and on each anniversary. If you have additional cardholders, we'll charge you the annual additional cardholder fee once the card is issued, and after that we'll charge it in conjunction with your annual fee.
  •  
    Cash Advance Fee – (in Australia)
    If you don't need to get a cash advance then you won't be charged a fee

    If for any reason you need to, it'll cost $2.70 per transaction, on a cash advance less than $100. On amounts $100 and over, you'll pay 2.7% of the transaction amount.
  •  
    Cash Advance Fee – (International)
    It will cost you $5 to withdraw up to $1,000 a day

    You can withdraw up to $1,000 (which is subject to your Available Credit) cash per day from your Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card, costing you $5.00 per transaction. To access your account, all you need is your ATM PIN. If you don't know it, or haven't been issued with one simply give us a call us on 13 37 39 and we'll send it out to you in no time at all.
  •  
    Foreign Currency Exchange Fee - Visa
    A fee to keep in mind

    It's a cost of 3.3% of the transaction amount. When you use your card overseas, you're charged a foreign currency exchange fee on all retail purchases and cash transactions that are converted into Australian dollars. For your convenience when you receive your statement, you'll see overseas transactions converted to the Australian dollar value, including the fees as one single transaction.
 

Fees you can avoid:

  •  
    Dishonour Fee - $15
    Make sure there's enough funds, so you're not hit with a dishonour fee

    Keep an eye on your accounts before scheduled automatic payments or cheques are drawn.

     

    Otherwise you'll be charged a $15 dishonour fee each time a cheque or Direct Debit payment is dishonoured. The fee will be debited to your account at the time, and interest will be charged on any outstanding amounts.

  •  

    Late Payment Fee - $10 if your Payment Due isn't paid by the Payment Due Date and $10 every 7 days there after until the Payment Due is made.

    An easy one to avoid by ensuring that you pay your minimum monthly payment on or before the due date.

    Any time your minimum payment due is not received by the due date, you'll be charged a late fee of $10 per week until payment is received.

    To make things easy to manage there are lots of ways to pay your card account including BPAY®, telephone or online banking, cheque or by setting up Direct Debit payments.

    One way of ensuring your monthly payment arrives on time is to automatically pay your monthly credit card bill from your nominated bank account. For more information download the form.

  •  

    Overlimit Fee - $40 (if applicable)

    Keep track of your spending and your account balance, to avoid an overlimit fee.

    For those who became a Virgin Money Credit Card customer prior to 1 July 2012, if at any time during a given Statement Period you exceed your current Credit Limit, an Overlimit Fee of $40 will be debited to your Account in the following Statement Period (even if you subsequently reduce your balance to below your Credit Limit during that Statement Period). To find out your current balance log in to Virgin Money Online.

    You can also call in and ask us to not process the transactions which could take you over your credit limit and result in an over limit fee being charged. Please note that if you ask us to reject transactions that take you over your credit limit, there are a few exceptions that we can't reject such as: transactions that are processed manually (for example where a merchant does not use an electronic device) or for some recurring instructions set up on your Account. With these transactions, you will still be liable for the full transaction amount and associated interest charges.

     

  •  
    Over-the-Counter Transaction Fee (Bank@Post) $2.50 per transaction
    A transaction fee you'll never have to pay again

    If you make a payment to your Virgin Money Credit Card at any one of the Bank@Post outlets nationwide you will incur a $2.50 fee. So why not pay your card through other methods like, telephone or online banking, mail or by setting up automatic Direct Debit payments.

     

    For more information, please read the Payment Options on your monthly statement.

  •  

    Information Request and Statement Copies $7 each

    Why not avoid the fee by accessing your statements online, anytime. It'll save you money and the planet
    We send you a monthly statement or email you a reminder to view your statement online if you've used your card or maintained a balance during the previous month. But if you require another copy posted to you, you'll need to pay $7 per statement. It's so easy to avoid this fee, simply log on to your account at my.virginmoney.com.au, where you can view and download your statements at no charge.
