Citi Prestige Card review
The Citi Prestige Card is a premium card which provides cardholders with extra features to get more value when paying on plastic. Designed with travellers in mind, the card offers comprehensive international travel insurance and transit accident insurance, complimentary hotel stays and unlimited airport lounge access.
