travel from its stores using ANZ's First Card 

* Harvey World Travel creates special travel products and instant

Harvey World Travel (ASX: HWT) today announced a partnership with ANZ
Bank's new loyalty program launched today - ANZ First Sphere rewards,
for ANZ's First Card holders.

ANZ First Sphere rewards is Australia's first integrated chip based
credit card rewards program.

The Harvey World Travel network, consisting of 373 travel agencies
nationwide will provide bonus points to ANZ customers purchasing
travel from Harvey World Travel stores on an ANZ First Card.
Customers buying $1 worth of travel using the First Card will be
awarded with 2 bonus points.

ANZ First Cardholders will also enjoy a choice of travel options
through redemption of Sphere points for Harvey World Travel vouchers.
Harvey World Travel is creating special travel products and instant
rewards for Sphere members.

Barry Mayo, MD of Harvey World Travel said:" We have developed a
strong relationship with ANZ bank over the past two years and have
recently upgraded many offices with the new ANZ multiPOS terminals,
which enables us to offer instant rewards. The new loyalty program,
which uses chip technology to provide immediate points to customers
when they buy travel through us, is a natural extension of this
relationship. We are looking forward to welcoming many new ANZ
customers through our doors and meeting their travel needs."

ANZ currently has over 350,000 chip card customers.

Kamran Siddiqi, MD of ANZ credit cards said "The Harvey World Travel
partnership provides Sphere members with a range of exclusive offers
in the travel category that further enhances the value proposition,
Sphere members will benefit from a range of travel options instead of
a frequent flyer program."
