Lloyds Bank launch new World Elite Mastercard

October 3, 2023 | LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM

Lloyds Bank has launched a new credit card, the World Elite Mastercard®, where customers will earn cashback on every card purchase made, alongside enjoying a number of travel benefits, for a £15 monthly fee.

Customers will earn 0.5% cashback on each card purchase up to and including £15,000. When total card spending reaches over £15,000, each card purchase will earn 1% cashback, until the anniversary of account opening. At the account anniversary, card purchases will revert to 0.5% cashback, until total card spending reaches £15,000 – whereafter 1% cashback will be earned again.

Cashback will be paid into the account each month.

World Elite Mastercard® customers will also receive benefits which add a touch of luxury when travelling:

  • Access to over 1,300 airport lounges, including lounges at London Heathrow, Edinburgh International, Orlando International, Dubai International and many more, through Priority Pass. (Owned and operated by Collinson.)
  • Cardholders will be able to skip airport security queues and upgrade their airport security experience at participating airports, powered by DragonPass.
  • Direct access to Mastercard’s priceless.com experiences and content in the UK and around the world.

World Elite Mastercard® also provides one additional cardholder with all the card benefits at no extra cost. Cashback earned by the additional cardholder will be added to the main cardholder’s running total, and will be included in the monthly cashback payment made to the account.

The main cardholder will be able to view or manage their World Elite Mastercard® and travel benefits through online banking and the mobile app.
