RCBC Bankard JCB Platinum Card is equipped for today’s modern traveler, with benefits such as access to over 50 airport lounges

If you are a frequent traveler, you know that a credit card aside from debit card is a must when you are traveling abroad. When you check into a hotel, the receptionist always ask for a credit card, as a security deposit. I have always encountered this when I am checking in . Credit cards are a great way to pay when abroad. They’re far safer to carry than cash. Just let your credit card issuer know your travel plans ahead of time.

That's why RCBC Bancard together with their long-time partner, JCB, recently introduced their newest prestige card, the RCBC Bankard JCB Platinum Card.
