During the contract signing, Arniel Vincent Ong, president and CEO of RCBC Bankard Services Corp., relayed, “We have noticed that travel spend is back and many of our cardholders are again traveling. With this, we would like to offer our cardholders the best travel deals so they can maximize the use of their RCBC credit cards.”
“Through our partnership with WTE, our cardholders will gain access to the event ahead of the general public and thus, be able to get the best deals ahead of everybody else. They can also gain free entrance to the event and get deals/offers that are exclusive to the RCBC Credit Cards,” he added.

“Specific to travel, RCBC premium credit cardholders get unlimited free access at the Marhaba Lounge in T3, plus one companion, and free Priority Pass membership to enable them to access airport lounges around the world,” he replied.

Lastly, the RCBC credit card is the only credit card that enables customers to convert their purchases abroad at 0% interest for three months, digitally, thru the RCBC Digital app.’’
