Looking for a travel credit card to maximise on comfort, savings, and free trips?

Standard Chartered may have just what you need with its all-new Journey Credit Card! :D

Travel credit cards are popular thanks to the benefits offered, as they're designed to enhance your trips, be it for work or leisure, through perks such as accelerated air miles accumulation and more.

Different banks have different cards that give varying rewards schemes, so it may be worth your time looking around for one that fits your needs most.

The Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card replaces the WorldMiles World Mastercard, and comes with complimentary travel insurance with up to US$100,000 (RM466,700.00 at time of writing) medical coverage, COVID-19 coverage, as well as other medical benefits and travel inconvenience coverage. But what else makes the card stand out?

Curious about how the Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card can help you make the most on overseas trips and local getaways?

Here are three main highlights:

1. Enjoy unlimited access to airport lounges in KLIA Terminal 1 and Terminal 2

If you travel often, you'll understand how tiring certain aspects of your journey can get. 

This is where having access to airport lounges can make a world of difference to your experience. With the Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card, you'll be granted unlimited access to lounges in both KLIA Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

From comfier seats to complimentary food and beverages, you'll get to wait for your flight in comfort. You can even enjoy a quick shower or massage if you feel like it!

Plus, unlike most travel credit cards available on the market, you won't have to worry about entry limits per month or year — all you gotta do is whip out your card and travel documents, and you're set.

2. Enjoy complimentary Grab rides to or from the airport in Malaysia

Less things can spoil your holiday mood than figuring your ride home post-holiday at the airport. Don't want to lug around heavy suitcases on public transport or are wary of taxi services prone to unreasonable fares?

The Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card has an airport transfer benefit you can use, allowing cardholders to enjoy cashback capped at RM65 for any Grab ride from any airport in Malaysia.

You'll just need to meet the spending requirements of RM2,500 in Travel-related expenses (airlines, hotels, and online travel agents) within 90 days before your Grab ride.

3. Gain accelerated points for air miles as well as hotel privileges

Whenever you spend with your Journey Credit Card, locally or abroad, you'll earn more points at a faster rate. Cardholders can enjoy an accelerated rate of one Miles Point for every RM1 spent on Travel, Foreign Currency, and a new Dining category. With every two Miles Points, you can redeem one air mile from frequent flyer programmes such as AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines Enrich, and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.

With campaigns running all year long, you can also get a taste of exclusive hotel offers including Free One Night with Mastercard across various hotel and resort chains, hotel upgrades like complimentary breakfast, room upgrades, and early check-in and late check-out options! 

Shopping deals with instant rebates at participating outlets around the world with Mastercard Travel Rewards are in store for you too. In essence, more points means more trips plus free hotel stays! ;D

If you're leaning towards the Journey Credit Card, but still undecided, Standard Chartered is sweetening the deal with a free business class return trip from Kuala Lumpur to London with Malaysia Airlines!

You read that right — you could win a business class trip to London worth 200,000 Enrich Points!

From now until 10 September 2023, every RM100 spent with the Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card will earn you entries towards a grand prize of 200,000 Enrich Points, which you can use for your trip from KL to London.
