Here are 5 reasons that make Maybank’s Platinum MasterCard an ideal travel companion:

  1. All Maybank credit cards contain an EMV-compliant chip to help prevent fraudulent transactions. So, let’s say you’re shopping in a store in Paris and you swipe your plastic, an SMS will be sent to your mobile phone after every transaction to help you track your purchases and protect you from unauthorized transactions. The Maybank Secure Online Shopping (MSOS) feature, on the other hand, requires cardholders to enter a one-time password—received via SMS—before an online transaction at 3D secure websites.
  1. You can shop and dine like the locals do in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Cambodia with cross-border privileges, and enjoy discounts and freebies offered at local merchants from other countries.
  1. For every P50 spent using the Maybank Platinum MasterCard, you earn one Asia Mile or one KrisFlyer Mile.
  1. Using your Platinum MasterCard overseas earns you a 1% cashback rebate.
  1. You can enjoy MasterCard’s Priceless Cities program (, which offers exclusive access to some of the most coveted places and events in the world.
