The ENTERTAINER partners with Travelex to introduce new in-destination App

Dubai, July 30, 2018: Dubai-based global engagement and rewards solutions provider, the ENTERTAINER, today announced its partnership with leading independent foreign exchange business, Travelex.

The partnership introduces the perfect travel companion: an in-destination App that will provide its customers with an array of money-saving offers across 16 destinations. Travelex ENTERTAINER will open up thousands of new rewards for travellers exchanging currency – all people have to do is visit their nearest Travelex exchange bureau, exchange their money, receive their App card and download the App to unlock and activate amazing offers in selected cities.

Valid for 30 consecutive days after activation, the in-destination expert, Travelex ENTERTAINER, will also offer its customers a day planner and a guidebook. Customers will have the ability to access the guidebook via the App within their chosen destination and will also have the option to download it for convenient use offline.

Travelex ENTERTAINER customers in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Cape Town, Dubai, Durban, Johannesburg, London, Oman and Qatar will have access to 2-for-1 offers across Food & Drink, Beauty & Fitness, Attractions & Leisure, Fashion & Retail and Cheers categories, as well as the opportunity to book hotel rooms at exclusive rates through the in-App hotel booking engine, ENTERTAINER getaways.

Customers in Bali, Georgia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, Thailand and Turkey, however, will have access to instant booking of up to 5,000 tours and attractions through their App, as well as the use of ENTERTAINER getaways.

Tony Marshall, Head of Travel at the ENTERTAINER says, “We are thrilled to partner with Travelex with one of our signature travel solutions. Travelex ENTERTAINER will add even more value for their customers – it is a perfect supplementary proposition to the global offering. With access to our renowned 2-for-1 offers, as well as attractive rates for tours & attractions in 16 destinations, Travelex customers can start planning worldwide experiences, in the palm of their hand".

Tom Fane, Managing Director at Travelex Middle East and Turkey, commented, “We are excited to partner with the ENTERTAINER for the third year running as we constantly strive to give our customers even more value for their money. This year we hope our customers will be as excited as we are about the 16 new destinations added to the ENTERTAINER pack, and the significant number of high value offers the Travelex ENTERTAINER App is bringing”.
