So far the only non-Amex I've seen with 1pt/$ is HSBC QF Platinum and Macquarie Visa Platinum QF.
I suppose if you're part of their Private Banking or file a claim with the financial ombudsman.
As I noted in the other ANZ Black thread this is not correct. You need to also hold a return ticket to Australia, and to also meet all other eligibility conditions in the T&C (which most people would).
- Travel insurance kicks in after $250 is spent on any prepaid part of the trip (airfare/hotel/cars/other transport) which would be pretty easy to meet..
- Overseas transaction fees are 3% on both the visa and the amex, applicable to any transaction made with an overseas merchant, regardless of the currency, i.e. AUD transactions made overseas will still incur this 3% fee.
