Another feature is no blackout dates and minimal processing time, a valuable feature to any consumer who would appreciate worrying less about pre planning. Other benefits for travelling include perks such as unlimited lounge access, free limo transfers, and golfing privileges.
It’s important here to point out who this card is targeting. With a S$ 120 000 annual salary requirement and a S$488 fee, the very affluent are most likely to benefit from this card.
