Is it worth while using this card abroad?
Since you get 2.3 miles for every equivalent SGD 1 that you spend abroad.
For eg if I am in Australia, do you think it is worth spending with this card?

Or am I better off changing cash/ using Youtrip card instead?
If you want to"buy" miles thru spending then it is worth it. But there are some other cards that that give more miles for overseas spending.

With effect from 15Mar 2019, OCBC Foreign Currency Transaction increased to 3%(from 2.8%) and the miles earned is 2.4 miles. The miles will cost you 1.25cts.

Can the miles use for upgrade from economy to business class?
You have to convert VM to Krisflyer first. Personally, I think it is not worth it to upgrade using miles.

So after taking into consideration the exchange rate, 1.25 cents spend get 1 mile?
That's very worth it right?
Usually it is $1 local spend get 1 mile.

The 1.25cts per mile is you "buy" thru overseas spending (3% fee). 3cts per $ for overseas spending, 3cts divide 2.4 miles= 1.25cts.
The miles earned thru local spending is free.

Hi OCBC,

I have a supplementary card for my wife. When she setup the payment for Grab, after she typed in the card detail and go to validation page, it showed the user not found...Would like to ask if supplementary card cannot be used online?

Thanks, I just call the hotline and fixed. Would like to check more as I am new to this card.

If I go to buy a massage chair and take the 0% instalment plan, will I get the mile also?

Hi there,

Transactions that are on Instalment Payment Plan will not be eligible for Voyage miles.

You may refer to Clause 1.3:

Decided to be enough of a lurker and start helping people out.

By right it should happen immediately. Premier banking can 90% of the time be opened on the day that you open your account.

As for voyage card, application can be done on the spot as well. There’s even a promotion recently to get first year waiver for voyage card.

Let me know if you’re interested and I can get an acquisition officer from OCBC premier to give you a call.

Hi there,

Do drop us a private message with your bank registered mobile number, and we will arrange for the relevant department to give you a call.

Feel free to let me know if you want to put me as referrer (as I'm existing premier member). There'll be $200 cash bonus, willing to split w/ you.
