- Leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist partners with WeSwap to help customers manage their money more easily
- Customers can get £15 free travel money when they load £50 onto their prepaid Mastercard®
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has partnered with WeSwap to offer customers a prepaid contactless global travel money card, and help organise all their travel essentials when abroad. In addition, customers can receive £15 free travel money when they sign-up and load a minimum of £50 onto the currency card for the first time.
WeSwap’s globally accepted Mastercard® and easy to use app helps travellers save up to 90% on their travel money by swapping currencies directly with each other. The company’s people-powered platform gets holidaymakers some of the best exchange rates around, on all major currencies, including Euros, Polish Zloty and Hungarian Florin, with users paying a flat 1-2% fee on all ‘swaps’ and getting access to a suite of travel money budgeting features.
To redeem the offer, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ customers, who already have a break booked with the leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist, need to head to the Manage My Booking where they will then be taken to a landing page to complete the free purchase of the WeSwap card online. The WeSwap card will be delivered to the customers UK home address for free within 3-5 working days and once received, customers can download the WeSwap app to manage their funds, load and swap money and claim the £15 credit.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We’re always looking at ways we can make life easier for our customers and this partnership with WeSwap does exactly that. The currency card removes the hassle of organising travel money for different destinations and enables customers to manage travel money in a simple, safe and secure way. With the £15 free credit currently available to those who sign-up to receive the card, we have no doubt that it will prove popular with holidaymakers heading abroad with their favourite airline and tour operator who are looking to gain some extra pocket money.”
Jared Jesner, CEO of WeSwap, said: “We are thrilled to be working alongside Jet2.com and Jet2holidays to make the WeSwap prepaid card available to all its customers. Like the company, we firmly believe that getting travel money should be a stress-free experience to allow holidaymakers to focus on enjoying their holiday. This partnership combines two brands that put customers at the heart of everything they do and ultimately provides Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ customers with a simple, cost effective way of managing their travel money to make the most of their trip.”
