Key features

Commonwealth Bank has made the Low Fee Gold card accessible and travel-compatible - you can use it anywhere in the world where MasterCard is accepted, and feel safe in the knowledge that your purchases are covered by top-notch fraud protection. 

The card also comes with complimentary travel insurance and no foreign exchange margin - travel has never looked so appealing! Just remember to activate your insurance via NetBank before you leave Australian shores or you'll only be covered for the base level insurance which only includes cover for emergency medical and hospital. By activating the insurance you'll get more comprehensive cover, including cover for your spouse and dependents travelling with you. Be sure to read the PDS as there are some of the usual exclusions and cover limits.

The Low Fee Gold card has a purchase rate of 19.74%, so be sure to pay off your balance each statement period in order to get 55 interest free days and dodge the effects of interest on an outstanding balance.

You'll be pleased to know that the $89 annual fee is waived for the first year as well as in subsequent years when you make at least $10,000 of purchases. 

In addition to the free travel insurance the Low Fee Gold card comes with extended warranty insurance, where you'll get an extra year on top of the manufacturers Australian warranty and purchase security insurance, which means if an item is damaged, lost or stolen within 90 days of purchase CommBank will get it repaired or replaced.

The card has a lock, block and limit feature which gives you added security and flexibility. You can place a block on overseas instore and/or online purchases and on ATM cash withdrawals. The limit feature enables you to limit the single transaction purchase amount to avoid overspending. You can even temporarily lock the card if you misplace it. All of the features can be managed via NetBank or the CommBank App so you can turn them on or off when required.

If the Low Fee Gold card sounds like it's up you alley, applying is easy. You're guaranteed to get a response to your application within 60 seconds if you apply online.
