Mr. Tosapong Rangkawara, Head of Credit Card Marketing Division, “KTC” or Krungthai Card Public Company Limited, revealed that since Japan reopened its borders for Thai tourists, the total spending of all KTC JCB credit cards from the beginning of 2023 has grown by 53% year-over-year. In particular, the KTC JCB ULTIMATE credit card, the most prestigious JCB card, had a significant increase in the number of people interested in applying from its first launch in Thailand in March 2022. Currently, KTC has a total of 49,000 KTC JCB Ultimate credit cardholders.
In addition, most KTC JCB credit cardmembers prefer spending with the card in Japan. In October of every year, many members plan to travel to Japan due to the school break.
