Like just about everything Curve say, there’s an element of bullshit in it.
Look at Curve Metal’s features:
Turns out that
- Fee-free spending when abroad only applies certain days of the week
- Car rental insurance doesn’t cover most cars you’d drive (and it’s likely people will be driving inadvertently without cover )
- Worldwide gadget insurance doesn’t apply to the latest iPhones or Apple Watches, the sort of devices people spending £15 a month on a card actually buy. And the gadget insurance appears on the travel insurance document???
- Lounge access doesn’t mean access - but an opportunity to purchase a ticket each time you want to enter
Don’t get me wrong, the card has some decent benefits - which makes it crazier that they have to mis-sell their products so badly. This has PPI style claims written all over it.
