Top 3 Credit Cards for the Jetsetter

Print

Jetsetters are a privileged lot when it comes to getting the best out of their credit cards, but miles redeemable per dollar spent is just one part of the equation.

Travellers are one of the most lucrative markets for credit card issuers and banks often have credit cards which are specifically targeted at this group of consumers. For instance, DBS has the “Altitude” and Citibank’s version is called the “PremierMiles”.


Among the privileges offered by such cards, travel insurance coverage is almost a given nowadays. Banks therefore try to differentiate themselves by offering other benefits like frequent flyer miles. However, looking beneath miles and the fine print, some cards are clearly better than others.


The leader of this little ranking exercise may come as a surprise, but Maybank’s Horizon Platinum Visa offers the most balanced set of benefits among competing cards.
