Frequent fliers need to take note of their spending habits in addition to their overall travel patterns in order to find the best credit card in the United Arab Emirates for their purposes.
Although no single credit card will ever be completely perfect, if users make a careful examination of their own requirements, it will make it easier to choose the card that is best suited to them.
For example, users may have to choose whether better discounts or access to a larger number of airport lounges is of greater importance to them.
As of March 2020, there are a number of credit cards in the UAE that provide better benefits than others.
One of the best UAE credit cards for travellers at this point is the Najm Voyager Signature Credit Card, which gives users three reward points for every AED spent overseas or via their website.
Two Voyager points are earned for every AED that is spent domestically.
Using the credit card to pay for fuel, school fees, E-government and utility bills also offers cardholders one reward point for every AED that is spent.
A number of travel benefits come with this card, including travel insurance coverage of up to US$500,000 for multiple trips.
Cardholders also get complimentary Visa concierge services 24/7, while with Visa LoungeKey, users can visit over 1,000 airport lounges all over the world and get an extra 9% discount on over 175,000 hotels.
Another great travel credit card in March 2020 is the Deem Mastercard Platinum Miles Up Credit Card.
This card is an ideal travel companion because it provides a variety of exclusive benefits such as hotel and flight bookings and lounge access as well as much more besides.
