Raiffeisenbank and Visa announce a new offer for card holders. Now customers can enjoy a rebate on spending abroad.
The more Visa debit or credit card holders spend until November 15, 2013, the more they can get back. The cardholder will receive 1% of the total amount paid on one purchase, 2% on two purchases, and so on.
«Most card holders prefer to shop abroad. Average card turnover in foreign countries is much higher than in Russia — by 15-20%. This is mainly because using a card abroad is convenient and there is no need to exchange currency before the trip,» said Alexey Kapustin, Head of Retail Products and Customer Relations at ZAO Raiffeisenbank.
«According to the Visa Global Travel Intentions Study 2013, conducted at Visa’s request among European travellers, Russian tourists are the most willing to spend money on trips (USD 2569 on average). Moreover, they plan to increase their travel expenses by a record-breaking 36% to USD 3501,» said Andrey Vylegzhanin, Head of the Visa Business Development Department in Russia. «These numbers assure us that this offer will be popular with Raiffeisenbank Visa card holders who can not only spend their money conveniently, but also save on trips».
