Luxury Travel Benefits (MasterCard Benefits)

World Elite Mastercard provides luxury travel benefits and includes such items as upgrades on selected international flights, credits onboard selected cruise liners as well as many special amenities in over 800 locations all provided through Virtuoso, the luxury travel provider.

The World Elite Mastercard will provide travel benefits that give you excellent personal service whether it be for a short weekend away or that holiday of a lifetime. It should be noted that to be eligible to receive these luxury travel benefits, you must book through Virtuoso using tour World Elite Mastercard and pay in full using the card. This includes all reservations, deposits, and final payments.

Personal Service

Cardholders will have access to their very own travel advisor from Virtuoso who will arrange everything for you to provide you with the most professional experiences from your excursions rather than the hit-and-miss of organising your own sightseeing trips. Having your own advisor also provides excellent value for money with discounts on every aspect of your trip – from how you travel (air, cruise ship, car) to where you stay. With a World Elite Mastercard, you will receive a warm welcome wherever you decide to travel around the world.

Cardholders booking a suite at any of the resorts will receive additional complimentary facilities.
