Customers of UK Direct Debit Travel Card Currensea can now collect KrisFlyer miles whenever they spend abroad thanks to a new partnership with Singapore Airlines. The first non-credit card in the UK to offer such a benefit, Currensea gives customers the ability to earn 2 KrisFlyer miles for every GBP 1 (or equivalent) they spend abroad.
This means Brits collect more KrisFlyer miles for their buck than when using a credit card. Currensea is the first-of-its-kind Direct Debit Travel Card that allows consumers to spend directly from their high-street bank account without the charges, saving British travellers money against all the major high-street banks, travel cards and prepaid cards. In fact, it saves consumers at least 85% by cutting out the normal high-street bank fees and charges for every transaction when spending abroad.
Many British travellers are planning summer holidays to nearby green list locations over the following months, as well as amber list countries for those who are double-vaccinated. Its new offering means that every £1 spent on European trips would help travellers make a decent saving when flying further afield once restrictions are lifted.
You only need 980 KrisFlyer miles (that’s a spend of £490 with Currensea) to start making a saving on your next big trip with Singapore Airlines.
Singapore Airlines flies directly to Singapore from London Heathrow and Manchester. With just one connection, British travellers can also travel to bucket list destinations such as Bangkok, Auckland, Bali, Sydney or Manila.
James Lynn, co-founder of Currensea, said: “With many of us dreaming of a big holiday a bit further afield, we’re delighted to offer British travellers this first-of-its-kind feature, where they can start saving for a trip of a lifetime to somewhere on the other side of the world, without worrying about the fees associated with the credit cards who normally offer loyalty rewards points as a perk.”
