Given the slowdown of travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your travel credit card is probably tucked away in some forgotten part of your wallet. The good news, however, is that even though you won’t be booking any flights or holidays abroad anytime soon, these cards still offer plenty of rewards and perks which can add value to your everyday life.
Travel credit cards offer a wide variety of experiences and lifestyle benefits. From golfing to luxury experiences, cinema, fine dining, shopping, or simply using your points/ miles towards payments – these cards have something for everyone.
What can I get with my travel credit card?
While you may prefer not to travel abroad for a vacation at this time, you can still plan a fun staycation at a hotel by yourself or with your family, right here in the UAE. When it comes to hotels, UAE residents are spoilt for choice! Besides special price offers on hotel stays, many card rewards programs offer other advantages such as a complimentary 4th night free hotel stay.
Other common perks cardholders can benefit from include access to local UAE golf courses, buy-one-get-one-free complimentary movie tickets, discounts at restaurants and coffee shops, online shopping discounts, and other leisure experiences.
Rewards that keep on giving
Some travel credit card programs are designed to reward users for making large payments – like rent and school fees. They give the option of turning such purchases into rewards points/miles or converting large purchases into smaller instalments.
