Types of credit cards from Virgin Money

Since launching their credit card business in Australia, Virgin Money has expanded their range of credit cards to include low rate and no annual fee products. Their frequent flyer products have been, and remain to be, some of the most popular in the market. These cards reward you with Velocity Points when you make an eligible purchase as well as offer you a range of competitive card features. You can compare your different options with Virgin Money below.

  • Balance transfer credit cards

If you want to get in control of your debt, Virgin Money offers competitive balance transfer offers ranging from 0% for up to 18 months. Taking advantage of the balance transfer promotion could help you save on interest costs and pay down your debt faster. It's important to note that you can balance transfer up to 80% of your available credit limit from any eligible non-Virgin credit cards and the cash advance rate will apply when the promotional offer ends. For more details, see our step-by-step guide to conducting a balance transfer with Virgin Money.

  • No annual fee credit cards

If you want to cut down on standard credit card costs, look at a Virgin Money card that charges no annual fee. If you're an irregular credit card user, a $0 annual fee card will ensure your card isn't burning a hole in your wallet while you're not using it. The Virgin No Annual Fee card also offers a 0% balance transfer offer. As this card comes with a higher interest rate on purchases, make sure you pay your balance in full each statement period to avoid picking up debt and high interest costs.

Learn more about No Annual Fee Credit Cards

  • Low rate credit cards

If you struggle to repay your balance each month, a low rate credit card from Virgin Money could help keep your interest costs low and protect you from falling into debt. If the card has 0% p.a. on purchases for a promotional period, you'll need to make sure you repay your balance before the offer ends to avoid interest. Otherwise, if the card comes with a low ongoing balance, paying your balance in full before the statement period ends will give you access to up to 44 interest-free days on purchases.

Learn more about Low Rate Credit Cards

  • Frequent flyer credit cards

Virgin frequent flyer credit cards reward you with Velocity Points for every dollar you spend on eligible purchases. These points are directly debited in your Velocity frequent flyer account, which you can then redeem for flights with Virgin Australia and its airline partners, accommodation, fuel discounts with BP, car hire and everything from fashion and beauty to tech and gadgets from the Velocity Rewards Store. Some of these cards also offer bonus points on sign up or for a promotional period, which is another easy way to boost your Velocity balance. To ensure you're getting maximum value from your Virgin Australia frequent flyer credit card, make sure the value of the rewards you're earning each year outweighs the cost of the annual fee.

Learn more about Frequent Flyer Credit Cards

  • Premium frequent flyer credit cards

If you're a regular spender looking to earn more Velocity Points, a premium frequent flyer credit card from Virgin Money could help you redeem your rewards faster. With a higher earn rate than other Virgin Money frequent flyer cards, a 30,000 bonus points offer and a reduced annual fee for the first year, there are plenty of ways to rack up extra points with this card. As it comes with a less competitive annual fee and interest rate, though, you'd need to pay your balance in full each month and ensure the dollar value of your rewards exceeds the annual fee to ensure the card is offering more than it costs.

The benefits of banking with Virgin Money

When you apply for a credit card with Virgin Money, these benefits are on offer.

  • Earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points on eligible purchases

You can earn Velocity Points for every dollar spent on eligible purchases with a Virgin Money frequent flyer credit card. You can then redeem these rewards for flights with Virgin Australia and its airline partners, accommodation packages and products from the Velocity Rewards Store. While some of these cards come with bonus points on sign up, you can also earn extra points by using your frequent flyer credit card with Velocity partners such as BP fuel stations. If you're a regular credit card spender that usually pays their balance in full, a Virgin Money frequent flyer card is a simple way to be rewarded for your credit card purchases.

  • 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 or personal loan 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 access 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 receive peace of mind with Visa's No Liability Policy in case 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.

Your credit limit refers to how much money Virgin are willing to lend to you. During your application, you can nominate a specific credit limit or note that you'd like to access the maximum amount of credit. The credit limit you're approved for will depend on factors such as your income and credit history.

Refer to our Virgin credit card review pages to find out how many additional cardholders you can add to each Virgin credit card account. You can apply for an additional cardholder when you apply for the credit card. If you’re an existing Virgin credit card account holder, you can request to add a supplementary card on your account by completing and sending in an additional cardholder request form, which is available from the Virgin website. Please note that if the additional card incurs an annual fee, it will be charged to the primary cardholder's account when the supplementary card is issued. It may take up to 10 business days to process and issue an additional cardholder request.

You have the following options to make repayments to a Virgin Money credit card.

  • Direct debit. Jump on the Virgin website to complete and submit a Virgin Money Direct Debit Auto Pay Application Form. This method of payment allows you to automatically pay your entire account balance, just the minimum repayment or a specific amount when your statement comes. The money is taken from a savings or transaction account linked to your Virgin credit card account.
  • BPAY. You can pay your Virgin credit card from another lender’s internet banking facility using BPAY. The Virgin Money BPAY biller code is 49551 and your customer reference number is your 16 digit credit card number.
  • Cheque. Virgin credit card statements are issued with a payment slip. Complete this form and mail it with a cheque to Virgin Money at GPO Box 4299, Sydney, NSW, 2001. Make the cheque payable to your Virgin Money credit card account number and be sure to include the type of credit card you hold. Make sure you write your account number on the back of the cheque.
  • In person at Australia Post. You can pay your Virgin Money credit card at Australia Post using cash or EFTPOS.

If you have lost your credit card or it has been stolen, contact Virgin 24/7 on 13 37 39 (or +6 12 8288 2222 if you’re overseas). A member of the Virgin Money will block your card and arrange for a new one to be sent out to your location.

Each Virgin Money credit card comes with Fraudshield. This is an automatic system that will raise a red flag if any suspicious activity is detected on your account. Visa’s Zero Liability policy also protects you against fraudulent use (online and offline) if your account is compromised. All you have to do is call the customer assistance line, which is open all day every day, and they will instantly put a block on your card.

When you get your credit card head to the Virgin Money website and look for the icon that allows you to register your account as a first-time user. Simply follow the steps to complete the registration and you’ll be able to manage your account online.

You're required to pay a minimum repayment of at least 2% or $30, whichever is greater, of your total balance each month. You must pay this fee by the due date listed on your credit card statement or you'll incur a late payment fee. However, if you want to avoid collecting interest, you should pay your balance in full before this due date.

To activate your balance transfer offer with Virgin Money, you need to activate your card within 3 months from account approval. The balance transfer period will begin as soon as you've activated your card.

    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?

      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,

    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?

    • Staff
      Sally | August 24, 2015

      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

      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.

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,
