ANZ Variable Rate (Breakfree Package) Review

Rates and fees information correct as at 23 July 2018.

Review published: 23 July 2014

What's hot:

  • Offset account, redraw and split options

  • Discounted variable interest rate

  • Mozo Experts Choice Awards Winner 2018 - Major Bank Home Lender of the Year

What's not:

  • $395 annual package fee

Mozo snapshot:

The Breakfree Package from ANZ has some fab features for home loan seekers who are looking for great value but also want a big name bank. In fact, ANZ won a range of awards in the 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Awards, and took out the top spot as the Home Loan Major Bank of the Year. 

Key features:

The Breakfree package home loan bundles your home loan, credit card and bank account to give you great savings.

With the home loan, the package gets you a discounted rate but there are a range of rates available depending on both your loan amount and the loan to value ratio. The most competitive rate is for loans over $500,000 with an LVR of 80% or less at 4.30%. Have an LVR of over 80% and the rate jumps 0.05% to 4.35%.

If you are borrowing between $250K - $500K with an LVR of 80% or less (the category we looked at for our Experts Choice Awards) the rate is 4.40%, with and LVR over 80% and the rate is 4.45%.

Some of the home features available with the Breakfree package include an offset account, the ability to make extra repayments and redraw if needed, split your loan between fixed and variable options and should you need (if you're ahead on repayments) to take a repayment holiday.

You can tailor your repayments to suit you, and not the banks pay cycle so weekly, fortnightly and monthly options are available for repayments.

There is a $395 annual package fee with the ANZ Variable Breakfree Package but the benefits you get by bundling should make up for this cost, especially if you choose to do all of your banking with ANZ. The account fee on your transaction account will be waived (a savings of $5 a month), no annual fee on a ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum Card (a $295 saving) and you won't pay offset account or loan approval fees.

Who it's good for:

Borrowers who want to bundle their main banking products with the one provider to save on fees and want access to a Big Bank branch network.

Any catches?

As with any package, just be sure that you are not paying for things you don't or will ever use. Be sure to take advantage of all of the benefits offered by ANZ to bundle your home loan with your credit card and transaction account.

ANZ is a very efficient, convenient and professional bank. I however believe their customer service can be improved - the reason being as follows. Since my husband and myself were made redundant at the same time, we found it hard for those few months to pay our mortgage, so we applied for hardship. I found the customer service a bit harsh to us as a couple with a child in a hard situation. Especially since we have always been paying our mortgage on time for the previous 4 years. Although I am aware that there are clients who misuse the system sometimes, it would be great if their customer service were a bit more empathetic to people on a situational basis.
