Al Khalij Commercial Bank (Al Khaliji) Q.S.C., the next generation bank in Qatar, has launched its Visa Signature credit card providing unparalleled benefits and services for its Premium Banking customers. The launch of this card, the first Visa Signature credit card in Qatar, comes as part of the bank’s continued expansion and enhancement of its portfolio of innovative and customer-centric products and services.
The Visa Signature credit card offers a multitude of benefits which will be of particular interest to the international traveler: No fees or forex on foreign currency transactions which can save up to 5% on overseas transactions, free airport lounge access at over 600 airport lounges, free Schengen-compliant multi-trip travel insurance (covering medical evacuation, emergency medical expenses, travel accident cover, baggage loss/delay, and travel delay), free extended warranty, purchase protection, and medical and legal referral. What sets al khaliji’s Visa Signature credit card apart from the rest of the market is that customers can choose which of four designs they would like on their card, so just like your own signature, your Signature credit card is personal to you.
“Al Khaliji is committed to offering its Premium Banking customers products and services that meet their needs, whether in Qatar or overseas. It is on the promise of this commitment, and our strong understanding of our customers, that we have designed and developed our Premium Banking offering,” said Gary Mond, Head of Personal Banking at Al Khaliji. “The Visa Signature credit card, which we have carefully tailored to fit our Premium Banking customers’ international usage patterns, is no exception to this progressive and customer-focused mindset,” he adds.
One of the highlights of this card is the free concierge service available to all Signature cardholders. Wherever they are in the world, cardholders can call the 24/7 concierge and request something that money may not normally be able to buy, such as last-minute tickets to the Champions League final, or that they do not have time to arrange, such as re-scheduling connecting flights when a journey has been delayed, or arranging delivery of items that has sold-out in Qatar.
Isaac Thomas, General Manager, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain, at Visa Inc., said: “The launch of the Visa Signature card by al khaliji is a milestone in our joint endeavor to provide best in class propositions to their customers. The bank’s affluent customers now have access to a host of Signature features and benefits specifically designed to enhance their lifestyle along with a convenient, reliable and secure method of making electronics payments at home and worldwide. Our partnership with Al Khalij Commercial Bank demonstrates Visa’s continued commitment to Qatar and we plan to work even more closely with our partners here to develop propositions that grow their market share and satisfy their customers’ needs.”
