Hey There,


Travelling with your family will definitely not come cheap and can cost a lot more than what people might expect. Learn how to make your Credit Card deals and rewards work in your favour, so that you can enjoy your vacation without spending a fortune.

Why travel with your Credit Card?

Your credit card benefits will be key to saving money during a family vacation. The bigger its pool of partner and merchant affiliations, the more perks and privileges you’ll be able to potentially enjoy.


  • Overseas Privileges

Get a credit card that gives you privileges to ease the stress of a family holiday - from luxurious perks like complimentary airport lounge access, priority bookings, to necessities such as free travel insurance.


  • Cashback & Perks

Even abroad, there are smart ways to indulge and yet not pay the full price. A CIMB World Mastercard™ allows you to enjoy unlimited 2%* cashback on your Duty Free purchases, while a CIMB Visa Infinite gives you unlimited 2%* on your Travel expenses. And both credit cards, just happen to grant you 50% off and complimentary green fees respectively, if you’re an avid golfer.


  • Travel Deals

Beyond the above, some cards also pack a variety of exciting offers like complimentary hotel room upgrades, deals on your hotel room rates, flights and car rentals, and delightful dining discounts at restaurants across the region. Visit CIMB Deals for a list of over 1,000 Delas & Discounts you're entitled to as a CIMB Credit Cardmember!

Choosing the right travel credit card

The perfect credit card not only addresses your needs at home; it also rewards you wherever you are in the world. Here’s what to look for:


  • Wide Acceptance

Look for cards that will be accepted in a majority of countries. Mastercard and Visa are recognised just about anywhere.


  • Decide What’s Important

Evaluate your travel habits and find benefits that complement your needs and hobbies. 


  • Double-Up On Rewards Points

Link your credit card to your e-wallets and use services like GrabPay and Favepay when you purchase things. You’ll earn two sets of points and enjoy even more perks!


Think of your credit card as your ticket to great bargains.



Yours Truly,
