Touristly and AirAsia BIG announce partnership allowing travellers to acquire AirAsia BIG Points on holiday itineraries
Are you accustomed to raiding the flyer shelf as you walk through airports, hotels, and tourism centres while on holiday? By using Touristly, you do not need to waste your time figuring what to see, do, or eat as you can make it happen with the click of a button. All the more, you get rewarded just by planning and booking your holiday on the travel platform!
Announcing their partnership today, travel itinerary platform, Touristly, and AirAsia’s loyalty programme, AirAsia BIG, aims to give travellers more value as they can gain rewards by exploring destinations around Asia and Australia. This partnership will enable AirAsia BIG members to earn AirAsia BIG Points from creating and booking their holiday itineraries on Touristly.com, namely, one (1) AirAsia BIG Point for every RM3 spent on the travel platform. That is not all as AirAsia BIG members will be entitled to 300 bonus AirAsia BIG Points when they create and book their first travel itinerary on Touristly, as well as gain an additional 200 AirAsia BIG Points for transactions above RM500.
Celebrating this new collaboration with a limited time promotion, from now until 30th April 2016, members will earn 5X AirAsia BIG Points for every RM1 spent (instead of the usual 1 AirAsia BIG Point for every RM3 spent). They can also enjoy 15% off their first booking through an exclusive promo code.
“At Touristly, we are always looking for ways to enhance the travel planning experience by engaging travellers in what we view as the most fun element of going on a trip – the holiday itinerary. This exciting partnership gives us an opportunity to further reward travellers for planning and booking their holiday itineraries ahead of time by allowing customers to earn AirAsia BIG points not only from their flight and hotel arrangements but also from the actual holiday,” expressed Aaron Sarma, CEO and founder of Touristly.
In view of the partnership between AirAsia BIG and Touristly, Dato’ Bernard Francis, Chief Operation Officer from AirAsia BIG added, “AirAsia customers have been the reason for our success these many years, and we at AirAsia BIG would like show our appreciation for their much-valued support. This is why AirAsia BIG Loyalty Programme offers the best value of points to our BIG members and frequent flyers of AirAsia, worldwide. Our ultimate goal is to reward our members.
