One of the benefits that OCBC VOYAGE cardholders enjoy is a complimentary airport limo transfer when they spend a minimum of $3K in a month. Cardholders can earn up to two free limo transfers a month, which they must utilize within three months.
OCBC is now offering VOYAGE cardholders an alternative way of unlocking an airport transfer by spending a minimum of $1.5K in FCY in a month. Cardholders can opt to qualify for a limo by whichever option is more beneficial to them.
The T&C of the new limo offering can be found here.
Here’s how this measures up to other cards on the market:
|Card (Income Req)||Min Spend Requirement||Max Uses||Airport Drop/Pickup|
|UOB PRVI Miles AMEX ($30K)||S$1K FCY spend per quarter unlocks 2 rides (excludes online transactions)||2 per quarter, 8 per year||Drop only|
|Citi Prestige ($120K)||S$1.5K FCY spend per quarter unlocks 4 rides|
From 1 Apr 19: S$20K spend per quarter unlocks 2 rides
|4 per quarter, 8 per year|
From 1 Apr 19: 2 per quarter, 8 per year
|Drop or pickup|
|HSBC Visa Infinite ($120K)||S$2K spend per month unlocks 1 ride (first two/year are free, four/year free for HSBC Premier customers)||24 per year (includes the free trips)||Drop only|
|Maybank Visa Infinite ($120K)||S$3K spend per month unlocks 2 rides (no min spend if >$60K spending in prev. year)||8 per year||Drop or pickup|
|OCBC VOYAGE ($120K)||S$3K spend or S$1.5K FCY spend per month unlocks 1 ride||2 per month||Drop or pickup|
The OCBC VOYAGE card is currently offering 2.4 mpd on foreign currency spending until 31 Dec 2019, which makes it one of the best cards to use in this category.
In a few day’s time, Citibank plans to increase the airport limo spending requirement on the Citi Prestige card by more than 13X. I’m still struggling to get over how ridiculous an increase that is.
This ludicrous change means that in my opinion, the Citi Prestige for all intents and purposes no longer offers an airport limo benefit.
In light of that, it’s good to know that not every bank is moving in the same direction.
