The New TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card offers cardholders
exclusive full travel benefits and a rewards program that allows the
freedom & flexibility to book travel any way they want.
TORONTO, March 17 /CNW/ - Today, TD Canada Trust introduced the TD First
Class Travel Visa Infinite Card - the first Visa Infinite card of its kind to
offer cardholders "Book Any Way" flexibility, valuable travel insurance and
prestigious travel services.
This card puts the cardholder in control. Now cardholders can book any
way they want - through their favourite travel agent or online web-site, tour
package provider, a last-minute deal or promotion, directly with the hotel or
airline. The choice is theirs. There are no requirements to book through a
travel rewards program provider with limitations on points tiers, seat
availability or modes of travel.
"The ability to book travel any way is a feature cardholders will love,"
said Jim Sallas, Senior Vice President Personal Lending and Visa, TD Canada
Trust. "When we say any way, we really mean it and that includes everything
from popular travel websites, to traditional travel agents, to our exclusive
TD Visa Travel Rewards Centre and website. It means this card will make it
easier for cardholders to get the trip they really want."
Simple, Fast and Easy Points Redemption
While many competitor cards require their cardholders to reach point
travel tiers to travel to specified destinations, with the TD First Class
Travel Visa Infinite Card redeeming points is simple and easy to understand.
For every $1.00 in purchases made using the card, cardholders earn 3 TD Points
that can be redeemed towards any type of travel.
First Class features and benefits
In addition to the flexibility of booking travel any way, the TD First
Class Travel Visa Infinite Card is rich with features designed specifically
for Canadians who love to travel, including:
- Travel Medical Insurance

- Complimentary Concierge Assistance - trip planning help is available
24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and includes assistance in the event
