As a long term Bankwest Platinum and More World cardholder I've experienced a gradual degradation of the 'benefits' which swayed me towards Bankwest all those years ago.
It started with the change from 55 day interest free period to the current reduced monthly period. Ok no issue as I pay out the balance monthly in any case so I swallowed this one.
Then Bankwest reduced the complimentary lounge access from unlimited to 10 passes per year and increased the fee from $27 to $32 USD for any additional visits/guests.
The latest slap in the face is the changes to the 'Complimentary Travel Insurance' which has now been further watered down to the point where it doesn't feel very 'Complimentary' at all rather it should be renamed 'Insultory' Travel Insurance.
One of the key benefits of the insurance was the inclusion of car hire insurance premium cover which has stealthily been removed. I now need to pay to include this cover! What's the 'benefit' in that to me?
What a disgrace Bankwest, is this any way to reward my loyalty? Don't even attempt to convince me that there are other 'benefits' to this account as recent history clearly dictates, they too may/will not be there for much longer and I have lost all faith in Bankwest.
I expect you to refund my annual card fees as the reduced 'benefits' are no longer of value to me, alternatively I will be voting with my feet and moving to one of your countless competitors who have been vying for my business all these years.

So if travel for post 9 December is already booked and paid for, will BW honour the existing conditions?
It's not clear if the cut-off date refers to purchase date or travel date. Please clarify in the public forum for all to have clarity. Thank you.
