  • > Frequently asked questions about the discontinuation of Lombard

    • When did this happen?

      The Lombard brand was discontinued after 21 June 2019.

    • Why has my credit limit been reduced to $0?

      We have taken the tough decision to discontinue the Lombard brand. That means we are no longer providing credit under this brand.

    • Can I still use my card?

      No we have restricted all cards from any spend.

    • Do I still need to pay my balance off?

      Yes you must continue to pay the amounts which are required to be paid under your Lombard credit contract. If you are having financial difficulties in making your payments, please contact us as soon as possible on 1300 132 301 so that we can try to help you.

    • What do I do if I have direct debit arrangements in place with Lombard?

      If you have previously set up a direct debit arrangement with us to periodically debit your nominated account for an agreed payment amount (such as your minimum monthly repayment or a fixed monthly payment to your account) these direct debit arrangements will remain in place.

    • My account was in credit. How do I get these funds back?

      If your Lombard account is in credit, you can make a request for a refund of the credit balance. To make that request, please call us on 1300 132 301 and we can assist you.

    • I used my Lombard card to pay off my monthly bills. Will these direct debits still work?

      Any direct debit arrangements or payment instructions that you have set up with third parties (such as a merchant or a service provider) will need to be cancelled. If you do not cancel those arrangements with third parties, those transactions will be declined because your credit limit has been reduced to zero.

    • When did the Lombard brand get discontinued? I wasn’t notified of this happening.

      We sent an email or letter (depending on your preference) to all customers by the 21st of May 2019 detailing this decision.

    • I have changed my email address so I didn’t receive the communications. How was I supposed to know?

      We do apologise for the inconvenience however we could only send the email to the email address we have on file.

    • I have moved house so I didn’t receive the communications. How was I supposed to know?

      We do apologise for the inconvenience however we could only send the letter to the postal address we have on file.

    • How do I make a repayment?

      You can make payments on your Lombard account using one of the options below:

      • Direct Debit – simply arrange to have your payments automatically debited from your nominated bank account every month at no cost.
      • POSTBillPay - which is operated by Australia Post. To make a payment go to POSTBillPay.com.au or call 13 18 16. Over-the-counter payments can also be made at any post office using your statement or card. Your POSTBillPay details can be found on your statement.

      NOTE: Payments made by methods other than Direct Debit will incur a $2.50 Processing Fee..

    • Do I still have access to my Online banking?

      Yes your online banking access will remain as long as you still have a balance on your account.

    • Will I still be charged an annual fee?

      No you will no longer be charged an annual fee. We also refunded a portion of your annual fee depending of the remaining period on your annual account cycle when your credit limit was reduced to $0.

    • Where can I access my statements?

      Every month, two weeks prior to your payment due date, we’ll send you a statement by post or email, depending on the option you have selected.
