TATLER FOCUS

What makes a good travel experience? It can be as simple as flying first class on a premier airline and checking in to a penthouse at a five-star hotel—but why stop there when you can make it extraordinary? Here’s how we at Singapore Tatler think the best travel experience should go, made easier with the HSBC Visa Infinite credit card:

1

Get chauffeured in style

Your vacation should begin the second you leave your doorstep, so why trouble yourself with driving or hitching a cab ride? Save yourself the waiting time or the hassle of parking and enjoy complimentary airport limousine service* from your home to Changi Airport

Relax in the lounge

Once you’re tired of shopping in duty-free, relax in the Priority Pass lounge as you wait to board. Dig into a buffet of canapés, sip on drinks, and exchange banter in comfort and privacy. HSBC Visa Infinite grants you unlimited access to over 1000 Priority Pass lounges worldwide, so you can enjoy the best service you deserve wherever you jet off to.

3

Fly first class

The best way to travel is by first class, of course. Stretch out your legs, and catch a movie or two on the entertainment system while you sip on a flute of champagne. With HSBC Visa Infinite, get rewarded with first class flights for your shopping—at up to 2.25 air miles for every SGD$1 spent*.
