If you’re a jetsetter who earns S$120k annually, this might just be the card for you
Heathrow, Haneda, Munich, Dubai, Los Angeles, Barcelona…if you find that you have already subconsciously memorised the 3-letter IATA code of these airports by heart (which – for the benefit of those less familiar – are LHR, HND, MUC, DXB, LAX and BCN respectively), then it’s pretty safe to say you travel quite a fair bit.
And while we all can agree that being in another country is a rewarding and eye-opening experience, there are plenty of us who would attest to the fact that the travel process itself can oftentimes be a frustrating and time-consuming undertaking.
So for those of you whose lives revolve around traveling to various destinations and finding yourself flying in and out of different airports, be it for work – or better yet – for pleasure, the sleek HSBC Visa Infinite credit card can be considered as something of a boon.
Custom-made for the frequent traveller in mind, this particular card from HSBC provides an enviable list of privileges and features that should entice even the most seasoned flyer. Here are some of the highlights that might pique your interest.
Receive 35,000 air miles from the get-go!
While some other credit card applications may come with a complimentary luggage, the HSBC Visa Infinite card understands you better and rewards you with a generous token of 35,000 air miles as a welcome gift. These air miles are redeemable with over 30 leading airlines. That’s certainly not a bad way to start things off!
Travel like a VIP from start to finish
Aside from having unlimited access to over 700 VIP airport lounges worldwide, HSBC Visa Infinite cardholders who meet the minimum spend requirements would also get to enjoy complimentary limousine transfers to the airport, and expedited immigration clearance for themselves and one of their accompanying guests
Every $2,000 spent on eligible purchases in a month gives you 1 complimentary usage each of the limousine and immigration clearance services (limited to 24 times per calendar year).
Imagine the time and energy you are able to save from not having to hail a taxi to the airport and enduring long queues.
Just can’t get enough of those travel miles
Earn up to 2.25 air miles for every S$1 spent on the HSBC Visa Infinite card. For those of you who are frequent travellers, this is the best and quickest way for you to rack up those miles to take the family along on your next trip or to save up for that special annual getaway with your loved one.
Where’s my ‘Alfred’?
Butlers aren’t just for crime-fighting caped crusaders. The HSBC Visa Infinite card also comes complete with personalized assistance in the form of dedicated Infinite Travel and Lifestyle Butlers.
The best part of this is that since HSBC is an international bank, you can call upon the butler services anytime and from anywhere and they will promptly settle all the nitty gritty errands such as your travel, meal and leisure activity arrangements.
Travel with peace of mind
Just as the lion is an iconic symbol of HSBC for nearly a century now, attesting to its long standing history and spirit of resilience, the HSBC Visa Infinite credit card provides a promise of protection and commitment to its cardholders via its in-built worldwide travel insurance.
