January 8, 2019 Statistics & Trends No Comments

iFREE GROUP (iFREE), a global leader in e-commerce and travel connectivity, has announced a partnership with Visa today. This partnership will offer a unique Visa Global Travel Data Card specifically tailor-made for Visa cardholders in Mainland China, allowing them to enjoy seamless global connectivity when they are on the go.

Mr. Daniel Hou, VP and Head of Products of Visa China said, “According to Visa’s Global Travel Intentions Survey, China has become a leading market for international travel, given their strong appetite to travel overseas. The Survey shows that China will continue to be one of the largest outbound tourism markets in the next two years as travellers from Mainland China intend to take an average of 6.7 trips in the next two years, compared to 4.9 trips for AP travellers. When traveling overseas, travellers from Mainland China love to stay connected. 94% of them use mobile devices to connect to the internet at overseas destinations. To cater the travel needs of Visa cardholders in Mainland China, Visa and iFREE GROUP will provide two customised MOGO S Global Data SIM packages, eligible cardholders can stay connected anytime, anywhere. No queues at airports for purchasing a roaming card and no exorbitant exchange rates, Visa cardholders in Mainland China can have a worry-free travel experience with high speed 4.5G or LTE data roaming network.”
