Hi there, do I need to purchase my airline tickets using my Platinum credit card to activate the travel insurance? The website just says that you need to be a card holder at the time you make a payment. Doesn’t stipulate how you make the payment. Just want to check as using my credit card will encounter a 2% fee.
Hey, great question! That’s correct - you just need to be a Platinum credit card holder at the time you make a payment towards eligible pre-paid travel costs however there are some incentives to putting those costs on the Platinum card. If you refer to page 29 of the policy document, you’ll find more info: https://www.bnz.co.nz/assets/credit-cards/pdfs/bnz-platinum-travel-insurance-policy.pdf?v=3 For further details, it’s best you contact the underwriters of the insurance on 0800 269 872. Thanks, Alyssia
