Virgin Money Credit Cards

In 2003, Virgin Money was launched in Australia, initially just offering credit cards to customers.

It was started in partnership with Macquarie Bank, followed by a 5-year agreement with Westpac.

In 2013, the Bank of Queensland bought Virgin Money Australia for $40 million, but still pays royalties to the Virgin group.

Virgin Money has about 140,000 customers. As well as credit cards, it offers home loans, bank accounts, insurance and superannuation services.

About Virgin Money credit cards

Virgin Money offers a wide selection of credit cards to customers:

  • Low rate credit cards
  • No annual fee credit cards
  • Frequent flyer credit cards
  • Balance transfer credit cards
  • Visa credit cards

As Virgin Money aligned with the Virgin airlines group, it’s no surprise that the company offers several frequent flyer credit cards. These cards earn Velocity frequent flyers points that can be cashed in to purchase Virgin and Virgin affiliated airline flights.

The frequent flyer credit cards offered by Virgin all come with annual Virgin Australia gift vouchers. Some also have complimentary travel insurance, airport lounge passes, concierge services and extended warranty insurance.

Virgin Money also offers some no-frills lower end credit cards that have low rates and no annual fees. As these don’t have any rewards or earn frequent flyer points, they’d suit customers who aren’t looking for extras, but want to keep costs down.
