    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    I've canned a couple of trips to Singapore - all leisure. I would definitely cancel any trip to Indo / Thailand / Hong Kong / etc / etc / etc for the foreseeable future - YMMV

    Covid-19 - status pause

    Interested to see the details / dates / etc on travel bans Media paints a very bleak picture! I think we all agree Indo and a few good other countries will have limited or no means to combat a serious bug.

    Covid-19 - status pause

    ... Indo/Bali will be a disaster, we all hope it’s not already rampant, good chance it all ready is.

    All comes down to the bottom line. IMO expect DSC offers galore!

    Easy Bill Pay - Enhanced

    All depends what their costs are. Net return after fees, IT and admin could be bugger all. If the reserve bank is charging 0.78% (visa) - fair guess EBP and others are paying more... then you need to add on IT and admin.

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    This is the year to be building a new house! Quite a large build budget, so travel would have been more of a luxury than the normal affair. Can't see us travelling in the short term, and if this thing continues to pick up pace - we'll be cancelling all of our already booked SQ suite rides for...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    IIRC the Chinese did something similar with closing Wuhan, announced a date .... then 5 million people simply escaped to beat the deadline.

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    The flu-like disease claimed its highest number of fatalities in China so far on Monday, up by 90 to more than 900, with 40,235 infections recorded since the epidemic began. The head of the World Health Organisation, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said the figure could be "just the tip of the iceberg".

    They never ever sent a tax invoice - glad I don't need them.

    Question Credit cards, mortgages & offsets

    Don't do this unless you're prepared to have the bank grab a portion - could be small or the job lot.

    Question Credit cards, mortgages & offsets

    FWIW we've got a few million sitting in offset accounts - banks have always taken this into account when deciding our financial affairs. Just flick them onto your CA. We've never churned credit cards.

    Would you visit China?

    Pretty sure it was the Chinese that decided quarantining parts of their country was a good idea. Can't see any evidence of underhanded influence by third countries.

    Would you visit China?

    Don’t think you needed to add the last 4 words.

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Other than the sad fact this fellow has passed away the big issue I have about his tale was he was lying sick in hospital for 10 days before he got tested.... extrapolate that out for how many might have it and probably have also died. Given he's a doctor he probably got fast tracked in the...
