For frequent travelers, one of the most common pain points before is having to constantly exchange your peso to different currencies. Not only do you have to look for reputable money changers and the best rates, you also have to have an estimate of how much cash you need to carry on a specific trip. Credit cards are great but there are still some establishments who don’t accept plastic.
While there might be more payment services currently available in the market today, these cashless options differ in specific uses, and not all have the benefit of being backed by established global companies that have a proven track record in card services and support.
This is the reason why OmniPay – one of Asia’s leading providers of breakthrough card programs and payment services – launched theOmniPay Diners Club Forex Prepaid Card.
This card was created in partnership with Diners Club International Ltd., a payment services company owned by Discover Financial Services, and part of the Discover Global Network.
The OmniPay Diners Club Forex Prepaid Card is the solution for businesses who are looking to integrate travel-related benefits for their customers.
It is a USD-based prepaid card with the capability of acting like a loyalty and rewards card, and is internationally accepted due to the Discover Global Network, which includes Discover Network, Diners Club International, PULSE and affiliated networks.
It also comes with a mobile app, which allows the cardholder to gain access to payment functionalities such as real-time card-to-card transfer, QR Payments, balance inquiry and transaction history. The mobile app also allows locating ATMs in the vicinity, getting up-to-the-minute currency exchange rates, and even ascertaining local tipping etiquette across different countries.
“Diners Club knows the importance of cardholders being able to use their card of choice when travelling abroad,”said Annie Zhang, Regional Managing Director – APAC of International Markets at Discover.
“Tourists from the Philippines often travel to the United States and Canada, places where we can offer wide acceptance of their OmniPay Diners Club Forex Prepaid Card.”
OmniPay Diners Club Forex Prepaid Cardholders are also entitled to Diners Club’slatest destination offersvia the Privilege platform. As expected, many of these privileges extend to other major locations across the world, covering a wide variety of dining, travel, and entertainment pursuits.
“Due to its undeniable advantages, the OmniPay Diners Club Forex Prepaid Card will surely spark a lot of interest and demand from local consumers,” noted OmniPayPresident & CEO Simoun S. Ung. “Accordingly, this will certainlybe a valuable addition to the card businesses of banks, issuers, and acquirers. As always, we are here tohelp these companies gain market share through well-designed, attractive card offerings,”he concluded.
