Compare HSBC TravelOne vs. Citi PremierMiles Card vs. SCB Journey Credit Card

Currently, the HSBC TravelOne Card offers the lowest minimum interest rate chargeable as compared to the Citi PremierMiles Card and Standard Chartered Journey Card.

In terms of annual fee, you'll definitely save more with the Standard Chartered Journey Card as compared to the HSBC TravelOne Card and Citi PremierMiles Card, as you wouldn't have to pay any annual fees for it.

When it comes to air miles benefits, the Citi PremierMiles Card comes up on top with the most attractive perks as compared to the HSBC TravelOne Card and Standard Chartered Journey Card, offering the highest air miles per S$1 spent on online travel bookings via Kaligo and Agoda.

However, the Citi PremierMiles Card requires a minimum spend of $800 per month for the first-year fee waiver, unlike the Standard Chartered Journey Card which does not have minimum spend requirements. HSBC TravelOne Card requires an even higher minimum spending of S$25,000 annually to be eligible for the second-year annual fee waiver.

In a nutshell, the HSBC TravelOne Card is worth getting if you're after its fee-free miles transfers with 9 frequent flyer partners, no cap on miles/points earned, plus the instant reward redemption with its extensive selection of airline and hotel partners via the HSBC Singapore mobile app.
