Can I just ask the simple question, what is Citi doing?? While there are glimmers of good news from them here and there, we just keep getting bad news. It looks like travel protections isn’t the only thing they are losing, but the are also losing transfer partners!
This one was a little bit of a shock to us. Without any sort of announcement, or reason given Citi lost a transfer partner recently, and that partner was Garuda Indonesia. Garuda is the national airline for Indonesia.
It goes without saying that Citi card holders are no longer able to transfer points over to Garuda. Its just unfortunate at how little we heard from from either party over this ended partnership. While I don’t expect many people were using them to transfer their points over to, the additional option of having them available is always better than not. Here’s to hoping that we get some sort of announcement of a new partner to replace Garuda in the near future.
