If you are looking for a premium travel card that gives you Asia Miles for all your purchases, you have come to the right spot. The RBC Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum is currently the only credit card in Canada that allows cardholders to earn Asia Miles, and with it you will earn:
- 1 Mile for every $1 spent,
- 1.25 Miles for every $1 spent in foreign currencies, and…
- 2 Miles for every $1 spent on online Cathay Pacific purchases.
Plus, new cardholders will get a welcome bonus of 15,000 welcome Miles which are worth up to $300, which makes that $150 annual fee definitely worth it for the first year.
With this card, you will also be given 9 different types of travel and purchase insurance, so if you travel a lot, that could definitely come in handy. (Check out the Insurance Coverage tab above for additional information and to find out which insurances are included).
With this card you are also giving a complimentary Green Tier membership to Cathay Pacific’s exclusive rewards program – the Marco Polo Club – for one year, which is worth $100. One more thing that makes this card worth trying for a least a year.
Like all other RBC cards, this card also allows you to not only have secondary cards, but set spending limits on them, so that you don’t need to worry about your other cardholders running up your bill.
The downside? There are better travel cards out there and some that even have lower annual fees, so be sure to look at the top 10 travel cards on the market, before making your decision.
However, if you are looking for a card that specifically earns you Asia Miles, this could be the card for you.
