    Do any of Bendigo Bank’s Platinum credit cards allow complementary travel insurance if you only pay a minimum set amount on your credit card i.e. if you have paid a deposit or can you pay the rest on total of travel balance? Do any of the platinum credit cards allow you to pay a minimum part of your trip for their complementary travel insurance?

      Hi Ray,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Not all Bendigo Bank’s Platinum credit cards have complimentary travel insurance like Bendigo Bank Low Rate Platinum Mastercard and Bendigo Bank Low Rate First Mastercard. Bendigo Bank credit card insurance is underwritten by Allianz Global. Cover is effective where the total value of the return overseas travel ticket for your journey was obtained prior to the commencement of your journey and was charged to your eligible Bendigo Bank credit card account. The use of frequent flyer or reward type points does not activate cover.

      If you’re looking credit cards with complimentary travel insurance, please check out this page. Kindly refer to the comparison table and you may compare credit cards by looking at their fees and terms and rates as well.

      Once you’ve chosen a provider, you may click on the “Go to site” to be redirected to their official page where you can check more details or even start your application.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    When does the travel insurance start from – the date I buy the ticket or the date I fly? My wife and I are going to Europe on 30th April 2019, for 6 months, but I intend buying tickets in the next couple of weeks.

      Hello Robin,

      Thank you for your comment.

      According to the Bendigo Credit Card Insurance terms and conditions, the cover is effective where the total value of the return overseas travel ticket for your journey was obtained prior to the commencement of your journey and was charged to your credit card account.

      Hence, it begins after you purchase the ticket using the said card.

    I want to purchase bulk products from a Chinese manufacturer and to pay with a credit card. How can I pay them with a credit card and will it get charged as a cash advance or legitimate purchase?

      Hi Kwozzy,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      If you are paying the purchase by using the credit card directly then this would be taken against your credit limit which would make it a normal purchase. If you withdraw the cash from an ATM to pay the manufacturer then it is considered a cash advance. You may be able to pay the manufacturer if he has an EFTPOS machine where you may be able to swipe the card to make the payment. The Manufacturer may also have a way to have you pay securely online but you may need to contact them to confirm if they have this available. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
