Types of Virgin credit cards

The Virgin Money credit cards you can choose from include reward options, low rate and no annual fee credit cards, as well as platinum accounts that come with more complimentary extras. You can compare all the Virgin Money credit card options below to find one that suits your needs.

  • Balance transfer credit cards

If you have existing debt you want to pay off, a Virgin Money balance transfer credit card could help you save on interest charges by offering a competitive introductory interest rate, such as 0% for up to 18 months. After that, a standard interest rate will apply to any balance remaining from the transfer. With Virgin Money, you can balance transfer up to 80% of your available credit limit from eligible non-Virgin credit cards or store cards, as well as personal loans and lines of credit. For more details, you can refer to the terms and conditions on the Virgin Money website or read our step-by-step guide to conducting a balance transfer with Virgin Money.

  • Frequent flyer credit cards

The Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer and High Flyer credit cards earn Velocity Points for every $1 you spend on eligible purchases. These points are automatically credited to your Velocity account, where you can redeem them for flights with Virgin Australia and its airline partners, accommodation, gift cards and merchandise from the Velocity Rewards Store.

Depending on the card, you could also enjoy thousands of bonus Velocity Points when you sign up and meet the spending requirements. Compare the latest Virgin credit card introductory offers on this page to find out what's available to you now.

  • Premium frequent flyer credit cards

The Virgin Australia Velocity High Flyer is a top-tier rewards card that offers a higher earn rate than other Virgin Money frequent flyer cards, a 80,000 bonus points offer and complimentary travel insurance.

This card also gives you two complimentary single-entry Virgin Australia domestic lounge passes and a $129 Virgin Australia flight voucher each year, which you can redeem by making a retail purchase at least 2 months before you request it. As this card has a standard annual fee of $289, make sure you consider whether the benefits will outweigh the cost of it.

  • No annual fee credit cards

With a $0 annual fee for life, the Virgin No Annual Fee credit card gives you a way to save on credit card costs. This card also offers 0% on balance transfers for 12 months. At the end of the introductory period, any debt left over from the balance transfer will be charged interest at the standard variable rate for cash advances, currently 20.99% p.a. Meanwhile, the purchase rate for this card is 18.99% p.a. (variable).

  • Low rate credit cards

Virgin's Low Rate credit card is designed to help you save on interest charges, offering a competitive ongoing variable purchase rate of 11.99% p.a.. It also has an annual fee of $49 and contactless payment options through Visa payWave.

The benefits of banking with Virgin Money

These are some of the most popular features you can enjoy with a Virgin Money credit card.

  • Velocity Frequent Flyer Points

If you get a Virgin Money frequent flyer credit card, you'll earn Velocity Points for every $1 spent on eligible purchases. You can then redeem your points for flights with Virgin Australia and its airline partners, accommodation packages and products from the Velocity Rewards Store. Some Virgin Money credit cards come with introductory bonus points offers to help boost your balance. Plus, you can earn extra points by using your frequent flyer credit card with Velocity partners. Check out our guide to discover more ways to earn Velocity Points with a credit card.

  • Virgin Australia flight voucher - Velocity Flyer and High Flyer cards

Both the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer and High Flyer credit cards offer you a $129 Virgin Australia gift voucher every year you have the card. All you have to do is make a retail purchase with your card two months before requesting your voucher. You can then use it to help pay for Virgin Australia flights or selected Virgin Australia holiday packages anytime within the first 6 months from the date the voucher is issued.

  • 0% balance transfer offers

If you have a debt that's collecting high interest, Virgin Money offers a number of credit cards with 0% balance transfer promotions for up to 18 months. This means you can transfer a balance from a non-Virgin Money credit card, store card, personal loan or line of credit and pay down your debt without interest for the duration of the balance transfer period. Once the promotion ends, though, the standard cash advance interest rate will apply, so it's wise to pay your entire debt before this happens.

  • Visa credit card perks

All Virgin Money credit cards belong to the Visa payment network, meaning you can enjoy global acceptance and a variety of exclusive Visa perks. You'll be able to use Visa payWave for contactless tap-and-go payments of up to $100 and get peace of mind with Visa's Zero Liability Policy if your card is ever lost, stolen or used for a fraudulent transaction. You'll also receive access to presale concert tickets, entertainment offers and discounts courtesy of Visa Entertainment.

    I am wanting to change credit cards. I am looking for a card with 0% interest for at least 12 months, the lowest transfer or no transfer fee if possible, a rewards card that allows me to collect qantas points and possibly that allows me to consolidate a personal loan with the credit card debt. Is there a card that will suit all or most of these needs?

    • finder Customer Care
      LouMarch 14, 2017Staff

      Hi Lydia,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you are looking for a credit card that lets you consolidate your personal loan, you can compare your options here. Several options meet your no balance transfer fee and 0% balance transfer criteria. However, only the Citi Qantas Signature Credit Card allows you to earn Qantas points.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    Hi there.
    Does the Virgin Money Velocity credit card earn points when you make a payment to the ATO?
    I can’t seem to find any information about this in their terms and conditions.
    Hope you can help.

    Hi,

    Me and my partner have a joint loan and want to do a balance transfer to a CC. Is this possible with Virgin?

    • finder Customer Care
      SallyAugust 24, 2015Staff

      Hi Donald,

      Thanks for your question.

      Just to clarify, are you referring to a personal loan?

      If so, Virgin Money are one of a select number of institutions that allow you to transfer your personal loan and line of credit debt to one of their credit cards, as well as letting you transfer other card debt.

      However, your eligibility requirements will also depend on the level of the debt and your credit history. Should you have any further specific questions regarding your eligibility requirements, I would suggest you get in contact with Virgin Money directly.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Sally

      JonathanAugust 24, 2015Staff

      Hi Narelle,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      The minimum credit limit varies and depends on the type of credit card you choose. Most Virgin Australia credit cards offer a minimum credit limit of $6,000, but there are some that also offer a higher amount.

      If you wish to find out the minimum credit limit of a specific card, kindly check the Comparison table on this page and click on the credit card of your choice. On the page the product table will provide the details you are looking for, including the minimum credit limit of the respective card you’ve chosen.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks,

      Jonathan
