Dubai: Dubai-based international incentives provider, the ENTERTAINER, and Wego, the largest online travel marketplace in the Middle East and North Africa, today announced an exciting partnership that gives Wego users access to exclusive offers across the dining, leisure, entertainment and beauty sectors.

Travellers using Wego’s offers on the metasearch engine’s iOS and Android Apps, will now gain access to hundreds of 2-for-1 ENTERTAINER offers. These offers, cherry-picked for their relevance to the MENA traveller, can be redeemed across a number of global locations - via the Wego App. Members can benefit from these offers at select lifestyle business outlets in the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and Bali.

Donna Benton, Founder of the ENTERTAINER, said: “For us, experience is everything. Our partnership with Wego only further highlights what we believe in – appealing to all digital travellers, we want to ensure that they experience some of the best restaurants, spas and leisure activities, stress-free, and at great value”.

Mamoun Hmedan, Wego Managing Director for Middle East, North Africa and India, said: “Wego is delighted to join hands with the ENTERTAINER to offer our users a wider variety of exciting benefits. This partnership is in line with our constant endeavor to give users, from around the world, the best travel shopping experience. Adding the ENTERTAINER bouquet of offers to the Wego offers regular selection of curated discounts and deals only reaffirms Wego’s commitment towards deepening its bond and engagement with existing users”.

Tony Marshall, Head of Travel at the ENTERTAINER added: “We’re proud to be increasing the ENTERTAINER travel footprint with such a prominent brand as Wego, adding extra value to their loyalty program by offering our content to their members in markets of mutual interest. Partnering with like-minded companies ensures that the industry continues to innovate in the experience economy”.

Hmedan added: “This partnership seeks to diversify the range of deals and services that Wego users have access to. So, today, these users can avail great offers even when on holiday, rather than just securing bargains on flights and accommodation (which are booked pre-trip). Since Wego is the MENA region’s #1 travel App, we believe that it is best positioned to act as the natural distribution partner for the ENTERTAINER.”  

In order to avail the ENTERTAINER offers, individuals must access Wego offers on Wego App. Each user can make two free redemptions – which include the likes of 2-for-1 main courses at some of the best restaurants in the city, as well as 2-for-1 offers on luxury spa treatments – before needing to upgrade their Wego Pack to unlock further offers. For $35 users will gain access to offers at 100 merchants per city, where they will be able to explore their destination and make memories while saving.
