    Very hit and miss with advice depending on who you speak with. If you go into the one store then you are not given any helpful advice, even the branch manager tells you that you need to ring the hotline... terrible. Yet when you go into the another branch, they always make the time to sit down with you and explain everything and nothing is ever too much trouble.

    I have had a mortgage and all my savings accounts and visa account with Westpac for 25 years and recently I tried to top up my loan with a very small amount and they rejected it based on their 'formula' i.e. I did not, in their view, earn enough money to warrant a top up loan despite never ever defaulting on a loan or account. So much for rewarding customer loyalty. Their interest rates are pitiful compared to others and the types of house loans on offer are restrictive.
