Expert review

The Latitude Mastercard comes with worldwide acceptance and contactless mobile payments through Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay. While it offers the same interest rate on purchases and cash advances, 24.5% is at the high end of the scale for credit cards in Australia. The $69 annual fee is more competitive, but it’s still worth looking at a few options so you can find a card that works for you.
