Fareportal, a high-tech, high-touch travel company that powers a next generation travel concierge, is set to launch a co-branded credit card program with Synchrony Financial in October 2016. The program includes new Visa and Visa Signature credit cards for both CheapOair and OneTravel, as well as a private label credit card for each brand.
Designed to enhance the existing CheapOair and OneTravel Rewards programs and help customers accelerate earnings, the cards will offer a range of introductory offers to qualifying cardholders including:
Cardholders get CheapOair and OneTravel Reward’s Program Points plus 6 additional Points per $1 spent using their CheapOair or OneTravel Credit Card on CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com.
In addition to earning points faster on all CheapOair and OneTravel purchases, Visa credit cardholders will earn 4 points for every $1 spent on dining purchases and 2 points for every $1 spent on all other purchases wherever Visa credit cards are accepted.
CheapOair and OneTravel operate with a business model that bridges the gap between an online travel agency and a traditional travel agency by providing convenient online booking capabilities, as well as a 24/7 personalized trip booking experience.
“Travelers are looking for great experiences and also for cheap flights,” said Michael Culhane, CFO of Fareportal. “Our new relationship with Synchrony Financial offers our customers outstanding financing options and an enhanced loyalty program. Additionally, a co-brand card will allow our customers to use their card anywhere in the world to earn rewards.”
Fareportal is among the first travel companies to offer its customers special financing options through a co-branded credit card program. A recent survey conducted by Synchrony Financial found that 72% of travelers said they would be “very” or “extremely” likely to apply for and open a travel credit card, and utilize special financing, if their travel purchase was more than $399.
Travelers around the world can find and book their perfect trip on CheapOair or OneTravel’s websites, mobile and tablet apps, and by calling one of thousands of trained travel agents in multiple countries and in multiple languages. Fareportal provides access to more than 450 airlines, 200,000 hotels and hundreds of car agencies worldwide.
“Synchrony Financial shares Fareportal’s passion for using innovation and technology to provide a seamless customer service experience,” said Tom Quindlen, executive vice president and CEO, Retail Card, Synchrony Financial. “Special financing can be a key differentiator for travelers looking for flexible payment options while also maximizing the versatility and value of expenditures with a Fareportal credit card.”
