In partnership with MBNA and MasterCard, Lastminute.com launches new credit card embedding contactless payment technology.
This card goes along with a loyalty programme: points earned for each dollar spent and convertible into gift vouchers to be used on the travel-dedicated website, exclusive offers and leisure-related deals.
In order to promote this new card, Lastminute.com has also developed an incentive offer on for a few months after opening of the account: 0% AGP on both balance transfers and money transfers, 1,500 loyalty points for 250 pounds of purchases (or 15 pounds purchase voucher).
Through this initiative, Lastminute.com follows a trend initiated by
large tourism companies in the United Kingdom. Thomas Cook, TUI Travel
or British Airways, have also launched credit cards along with
attractive loyalty programmes enabling their cardholders to add up
points and convert them into purchase vouchers.
Lastminute.com makes the difference through the addition of a
contactless function in a country where the required infrastructure has
already been massively deployed.
