In April 2013, the daily turnover of the Raiffeisen Travel Card portfolio surpassed USD 1 million. Thus, cardholders receive about 1 000 000 bonus miles a day for non-cash payments.
«The Raiffeisen Travel Card portfolio is much larger than other co-branded portfolios in our product line, which is primarily a result of the high demand for travel cards. Besides, you can pay not only for plane tickets using bonus miles, but also for other travel services, which makes this product especially appealing to customers», said Alexei Kapustin, Head of Retail Products and Customer Relations in ZAO Raiffeisenbank.
«Our achievements point to the growing interest in universal card products, which offer not only a convenient way to pay for services, but also the chance to pay for travel services with bonus miles. That’s what we’ve implemented in the co-branded Raiffeisen Travel Card. We’re are continuously developing the Travel Miles programme and we’re sure that under this project new ways to use Travel Miles will be made available to our customers in the near future», said Vladimir Bredikhin, General Manager of Braddy S.A. (iGlobe.ru).
The Raiffeisen Visa Travel Card is a co-branded joint project between Raiffeisenbank and the iGlobe.ru online portal. Holders receive bonus Travel Miles when making purchases using the card. Bonus miles can be exchanged for plane tickets and various travel services offered on the iGlobe.ru website, including hotels, car rentals, etc.
