Protect your children near and far
Whether your children are going abroad to study or just for the experience of travelling, it's good to know they're not on their own. With HSBC Premier, your family also benefits from some of the features you enjoy.
If your children are planning to go to university abroad, for example, they can take advantage of the international account opening facility - available in more than 30 countries and territories worldwide - to have an account open and ready for them when they arrive.
And, if you have an HSBC Premier Credit Card and want to ensure that they're never left wanting for money and they're 18 years old or over, they can, subject to local terms and conditions, have an additional credit card.
We won't let them down in an emergency, either. With HSBC Emergency Assistance, they can take advantage of up to US$2,000 or currency equivalent emergency cash (with your permission), to be collected from up to 245,000 locations worldwide and get a replacement credit card within 36 hours. You can also use your Worldwide Travel Insurance that offers protection for you and your family on trips (subject to the exclusions and limits of cover).
