Ever wished you had a personal assistant? Well, this card acts as your omnipresent butler!
Any good businessman would agree that time is money. And every minute they spend can be counted in dollars and cents. That is why many CEOs hire personal assistants, since the time spent coordinating schedules and making appointments could very well translate to closing big business deals and looking at the bigger picture stuff.
But not all of us can afford personal assistants. But what if there was a way you could buy time? Would you do it?
That is where the HSBC Visa Infinite Card’s travel and lifestyle butlers come into play. Instead of hiring a butler, personal assistant, nanny, etc., you get to enjoy the personalised service from a butler just by being a cardholder. The best part is that the butlers are made available to you at all times!
No task is too big or small
Imagine it is Valentine’s Day and you’re travelling overseas for work again. You want to extend a gesture to your wife who is waiting at home for you. Just call the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers to order her a bouquet of flowers and a beautiful necklace – all with just one request.
In fact, the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers went above and beyond their call of duty. When HSBC Visa Infinite cardmember Mr Langdon* wanted to send gifts to his girlfriend in London, he called up the butlers from Singapore. What he did not expect, was that the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers managed to purchase the gifts and deliver them within the same day.
What about securing front row seats for some of the most popular musical acts around? It can be a virtually impossible task even if you have all the time to camp out in front of multiple devices, constantly refreshing the page as soon as the online ticketing sales are launched. With help from the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers, the process is as easy as pie.
That’s what HSBC Visa Infinite cardmember Mr Stuart* discovered, when tickets for the Hong Kong leg of Taiwanese band MayDay’s concert tour was completely sold out. The HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers managed to secure tickets for Stuart and had them delivered to his hotel so he could attend the concert during his short stay in Hong Kong.
Now, with Mayday coming to Singapore in December and those concert tickets already sold out, sign up for the HSBC Visa Infinite card here, and the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers could just be able to help you out with that.
Maybe you’re a serious traveller and wanderlust fiend. You hate being called a tourist and visiting a country for its top attractions just won’t cut it for you. Guess what? HSBC’s Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers are there to help again. Want to see the Niagara Falls but don’t want to deal with the huge crowds? Or maybe the Colosseum in all of its historical glory? Or if you’re a huge fan of wine and all you want to do is visit a vineyard in Thailand? It can be done! They will find you just the thing you are looking for.
It doesn’t end there. The butlers can do just about anything you need it to do! Need to rent a tuxedo for a last minute black-tie event? They have got you covered.
Always ready for a challenge
When HSBC Visa Infinite cardmember, Mr Richard* needed to travel for work during the week of his wife’s birthday, he desperately wanted to surprise her with a cake from her favourite bakery.
Upon realising that the bakery did not offer delivery services, he contacted the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers to help him out. The butlers appointed a runner to purchase the cake and deliver it to his wife on her birthday, in exactly the manner that Mr Richard had wanted.
In another time-sensitive request, Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers were able to deliver yet again to another happy customer. One of HSBC’s longtime cardholders, Mr Francis* had finally found the one!
He had spent the last couple of months planning out the perfect proposal and he was just missing one last element – balloons. Since he didn’t want to compromise the element of surprise and the balloons had to be bought at the last minute, he enlisted the help of the Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers and voila, the balloons were at the venue of the proposal! (And she said yes, by the way!)
Going above and beyond
In all seriousness, HSBC's Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers aren't just about fun and glamour. Sometimes, we're really caught up in situations that are unexpected and unpredictable – flight delays, train cancellations, hotel overbooking, lost luggage, and a myriad of other possible scenarios that we hope never to encounter.
The HSBC Visa Infinite Card already aims to save you some of the hassles, by offering you complimentary limousine transfers to the airport and expedited immigration clearance with a minimum spend. Cardholders can also enjoy free travel insurance^ whenever they fly and charge their entire travel expense to the HSBC Visa Infinite Card.
The HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers simply covers all other bases for cardmembers.
Mr Trevor*, a frequent business traveller, never thought he would have to deal with one of these time-consuming, unfortunate events. But alas, on one of his flights from Singapore to Las Vegas, he arrived at the airport to find that his luggage did not make it to its destination!
Already familiar with the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers, he called them up and they managed to trace his luggage (with the help of the airport and airline) and even gave him an estimated time of arrival. The luggage was promptly delivered to his hotel and he could continue on his trip without worrying.
So, while these scenarios used to force you to spend a lot of time reorganising your plans, you absolutely don’t have to anymore. With the HSBC Infinite Travel and Lifestyle butlers there to help at all times, there should be no reason why you have to go through this alone.
