BankVic (formerly Police Credit) is an excellent, honest and competitive bank with an emphasis on customer service. We have had our personal and home loans through them for several years and have had other people, such as our conveyancer describe them as being excellent to work with. When you call them you can always get a person that you can have a conversation and joke with if you like and everything gets sorted quickly. Their products offer a great balance of features and competitiveness. They won't be the cheapest in the market but they don't sting you with hidden fees and charges either. Improvements; the main things they could improve are their network of fee-free ATMS and their online platform. They especially need to implement 2-factor authentication for the banking platform, as I think they are probably the only bank that doesn't at this point. Although, they do ring you quickly re any suspect transactions.

Very customer oriented. BankVic originally established as a Co Operative with a fundamental philosophy of returning profits to its member base.

BankVic was recommended by friend and I couldn't be happier. Both setting up a new account and taking out a home loan was hassle free - no pressure process. I compare that to my original first choice lender (one of big banks) who took on role of 'faux friend' but was later unresponsive to my queries and questions as first time lender. After gaining pre-approval I nonetheless disregarded them and couldn't be happier. Customer service is first rate. They're easy to get hold of and speak with and are professional and genuine in providing service. Products themselves are easy to understand. In my base a 'basic variable home loan'. Easy to log in to my account and see the status of my banking details. Important communications (approvals - rate reductions!) are sent out via SMS - but they never try to sell me additional products. I'm just a satisfied customer - rare - but not yet extinct breed if you're banking with BankVic.

No fees, always get friendly local people to help with any questions. I just wonder why more people don't bank with them and keep making huge profits for the big 4.

Police Credit Co-op (now Bank Vic) has been our choice of a banking partner for 30+ years. Now our adult children also bank with this organisation. We have tried 'bank mortgages' but always return to Bank Vic. The service is exceptional, the rates are consistently within the lowest available by a significant amount, rate reductions are passed on very quickly, the on-line banking services are constantly being improved and the security on our account is without exception. The members are the shareholders so the benefits stay with us. Face-to-face banking is available via Westpac branches. What else could you need in a financial institution?

I asked for a home loan by the phone and it was set up for me with only one visit to sign the paper work, and they rang me to let me know it had been approved. No Fuss No Bother and always notified of any increases or decreases right away. I have been with the PC union for about 16 to 18 years now and could not speak more highly of them, they are always very polite and very help full. Something the big banks should take note of.

Competitive product where it feels as if the bank is considerate of the customer. Interest rate cuts have always been passed on and promptly too. Cons - only two physical branches which can be a little inconvenient however they do compensate this con with brilliant phone and internet banking services. The provision of cost free cheque and deposit books to enable banking at affiliated mainstream banks is also a huge help. I would on the whole, recommend the product to others.

I have banked with Police Credit for over 30 years and when it came time for a home loan, they lent me 100% with some provisos. They considered me as an individual person; not just a number or what they could get out of me. They have never charged me any fees, although recently have introduced fees payable after a certain number of transactions for everyday accounts. Cannot speak highly enough of them. Only drawback is they have very few outlets and banking needs therefore to be done through Westpac.

Compare all home loans

Look for a specific type of home loan:

* The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a home loan. The comparison rate displayed is for a secured loan with monthly principal and interest repayments for $150,000 over 25 years, and applies only to this example. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
