Maybank Platinum Master Card launches the ideal travel companion

July 12, 2016

Maybank recently held an event  to launch their Platinum Master Card, so when I was invited I was definitely excited to attend since the event sounded fun and interesting - A trip to Venice for a day. How cute right? So basically there will be a bus that symbolizes as the plane and we will be in transit to Venice, Mckinley. The bus was not your ordinary bus, it was a LUX bus that owned up to its name, luxuries. We even had board passes and all, such a fun event! 


So while we were in the bus they were sharing what the benefits of the Maybank Platinum Master Card was, and guess what? Did you know that if you're a holder of a Platinum Master Card for every 50 PHP is equivalent to 1 milee to over 25 airlines. HOW AMAZING! And not just that, Maybank exists worldwide and #1 in Malaysia, so you are 100% secured and who wouldn't want that right?


When we got to Mckinely, we ate in this Italian restaurant. The food was amazing, from the appetizer, main course and dessert, it was absolutely delicious. Not to mention the Risotto. For a moment there I really felt like I was in a different country. Good job Maybank for a wonderful event, you truly got me knocked off my feet!

The board passes we got!

There’s one credit card that allows you to enjoy the best the worlds, what’s more, this ideal travel companion can fit perfectly in your pocket.The universal love of traveling is something Maybank Philippines understands and wishes to address. Travel is a luxury that allows you to experience new things and create precious memories. For many Filipinos, travel to distant places is a dream we want to fulfill. The opportunity to explore different places around the globe is what we work hard for and look forward to.

Maybank can serve and enhance this major lifestyle passion point through its credit cards which offer

financial flexibility with borderless discounts and privileges that cater to cardholders, wherever in the world they may be. In the bank’s desire to improve service to loyal customers, Maybank believes there is no better benefit than to offer its Platinum MasterCard cardholders the priceless experience of travel. “What people acquire from traveling – new memories, learning about different cultures, gaining new skills, a new perspective –are what we believe to be the things that matter most, and better than anything money can buy,” explains Maybank Cards and Unsecured Lending Head Eden Leah V. Estrella.

Since introducing its credit cards in the Philippines, with MasterCard as its partner, Maybank has offered amazing perks to cardholders that allow for rewarding, worry-free and convenient travel and spending. To ensure the safety of the cardholders, every Maybank credit card contains an EMV-compliant chip to help prevent fraudulent transactions. No matter where they are in the world, an SMS is sent to the customer’s mobile phone after every transaction when they use the credit card. This allows cardholders to track their purchases and protects them from unauthorized transactions. Further security measures are in place with Maybank Secure Online Shopping (MSOS), which requires cardholders to enter a one-time password received via SMS before an online transaction at 3D secure websites.


On top of safety and security, Maybank credit cards offer unique and enjoyable travel benefits. Philippine-issued cardholders can shop and dine like the locals do in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Cambodia with cross-border privileges. Maybank Philippines cardholders can also enjoy discounts and freebies offered at local merchants from other countries.


The perks and discounts just get better as Maybank offers an attractive miles program and cashback

benefit all in a single card. For every P50 spent using the Maybank Platinum MasterCard, cardholders

earn 1 Asia Mile or 1 KrisFlyer Mile. A big plus is that using the Platinum card overseas also earns

cardholders a 1% cashback rebate.

In partnership with MasterCard, Maybank Platinum MasterCard cardholders can also enjoy MasterCard’s Priceless Cities program which offers exclusive access to some of the most coveted places and events.


MasterCard has always made sure to offer the best to our clients, wherever in the world they may be,”

shares MasterCard Philippines Vice President Judith Dayrit. The partnership with Maybank is a

continuation of MasterCard’s commitment to crossing borders in order to provide priceless experiences.


Maybank continues to grow in the Philippines and has strengthened its presence with new milestones by entering new frontiers. “We aim to constantly improve and innovate for our clients, and make a difference in the communities we are present in” says Maybank President and CEO Herminio “Jun” Famitagan Jr.


For Maybank Platinum MasterCard cardholders, traveling is now so much easier and more rewarding,

they really get the best of both worlds. Switch to the new and ideal travel companion today.
