Our data also shows an increase in cross-border spend by Singapore Visa cardholders of more than 300% compared to May 2021, which is evident as the world reopens and more travel restrictions start to ease for popular travel destinations. Singaporeans who apply for the DBS Visa Vantage card can now make use of the benefits for this card including the ability to earn up to 4% cashback or 4 miles per SGD 1 depending on cardholders’ choice, priority pass at airport lounges, complimentary stay at over 1,000 accommodation choices and more,” said Mr. Kunal Chatterjee, Visa Country Manager for Singapore & Brunei.
