Mumbai, Nov 6: The Netherlands-based global banking major ABN AMRO Bank, operating in 21 cities across the country, and MakeMyTrip.com, a travel company, today announced a partnership to launch a co-branded Travel Credit Card 'GO'.
The card promises to offer a wide range of domestic and international travel services as well as offering exclusive promotions around airlines, hotels and holiday packages.
The card is powered with 'GO Miles', an exclusive rewards programme, which gives the user an option of redeeming their reward points against any airline ticket to any destination or stay at any hotel. Also, the accelerated rewards advantage helps users to earn higher rewards on transactions made on MakeMyTrip.com.
ABN AMRO's head (consumer banking in India) Sumant Kathpalia said ''Indians are increasingly using online services to plan their travel and book their tickets. Our tie-up with MakeMyTrip.com to launch the co-branded credit card further helps in our outreach to more customers in one of the fastest growing spend categories -- travel''.
''This tie-up leverages both ABN AMRO Bank's ability to provide creative solutions for customers' increasing spending needs and MakeMyTrip's market leadership position in the rapidly growing online travel industry,'' he added.
MakeMyTrip.com Founder and Chief Executive Officer Deep Kalra said ''We firmly believe that innovation is the key to maintaining our market leadership and customer satisfaction. We are delighted to be launching this payment solution with ABN AMRO, a partner who complements our passion for innovation and unsurpassed customer service.'' The Indian operations of ABN AMRO Bank began in 1920, with the opening of the first branch in Kolkata.
