Hi Tiger9119,

For cardholders who had chosen the $3,210 or $10,000 annual fee option will have the Voyage miles converted to Krisflyer miles.

Should you have further queries on this, do drop us a PM.

Thank you.

OCBC should have emphasized krisflyer miles, not just miles.

From OCBC website:
Annual Service Fees & Charges
Principal card with the following Annual Service Fee options:
S$488 (with GST) with 15,000 complimentary VOYAGE Miles.
S$3,210 (with GST) with 150,000 Miles.
S$10,000 (with GST) with 500,000 Miles.

Hi Tiger9119,

Thank you for the feedback. We have shared this with the relevant department.

We would also like to share that this information is provided in the Voyage card application form, and https://www.ocbc.com/assets/pdf/card...conditions.pdf

Hi louist,

For miles awarded in the manners stated above, the Voyage miles have to be converted into KrisFlyer miles.

Spend in SGD overseas earns 1:1, which is as you've said, lower that local general spend.

I read the terms and conditions on 13 Jan 2018, it show the followings:

OCBC VOYAGE Credit Card only
1.1.1 Overseas Retail and Dining Spend: earn 2.3 VOYAGE Miles for every S$1 equivalent charged in
foreign currency to the Card. For the avoidance of doubt, any overseas dining spend charged to the
Card in Singapore dollars will earn VOYAGE Miles at a rate of S$1: 1.6 VOYAGE Miles. Any overseas
retail spend charged to the Card in Singapore dollars will earn VOYAGE Miles at a rate of S$1: 1.2
VOYAGE Miles;


OCBC Premier VOYAGE Credit Card, OCBC Premier Private Client VOYAGE Credit Card and Bank of
Singapore VOYAGE Card only
1.1.4 Overseas Retail and Dining Spend: earn 2.3 VOYAGE Miles for every S$1 equivalent charged in
foreign currency to the Card. For the avoidance of doubt, any overseas retail and dining spend
charged to the Card in Singapore dollars will earn VOYAGE Miles at a rate of S$1: 1.6 VOYAGE Miles;

Hi Tiger9119,

Thank you for pointing this out.

The SGD spend overseas is now accorded 1.2 or 1.6 Voyage Miles, depending on the type of card.

You have rightly shared that this information is now available on our website and the terms and conditions.

for me, the use is mostly on the lounge.

Sometimes i get the Voyage section to handle my flight arrangements.

Congratulations on your card. The presentation was quite impressive when first delivered to me

By paying the annual fee, you still get the miles.

$488 = 15,000 miles
$3210 = 150,000 miles
$10000 = 500,000 miles

kinda pricey amount to pay for miles.

if there is no difference between premier and non-premier, then there is no point to maintain 200k and to become a premier.

The difference is that Voyage Premier earn 1.6 miles for each S$1 local spending.
