Visa, global payments technology company, recently announced its partnership with Chic Outlet Shopping, Europe’s leading luxury shopping experience. The partnership offers Gold, Platinum, Signature and Infinite cardholders discounts while visiting any of the luxury brand outlet villages from March 2012 through March 2013. Visa offers 10% discount on clothes as well as 50% off of the Shopping Express service, a luxury coach service direct from main central city destinations. In addition, Visa Signature and Infinite cardholders are granted a 15% discount on Chic Outlet Shopping partner chauffeured drive services.
“Electronic payments are increasingly becoming the new global currency, especially for travelers as payment cards alleviate the need to think about currency exchange and looking for ATM machines,” said Tarek Elhousseiny, General Manager, Visa North and Francophone Africa. “In addition to a flexible, convenient payment method, Visa’s payment cards come with unique offers and benefits for cardholders. Egyptians planning for summer vacations can securely book their trips using Visa cards and enjoy the Chic Outlet Shopping experience.” The chain of luxury brand outlet villages are located across Europe in London; Dublin; Paris; Barcelona; Madrid; Milan and Bologna; Brussels, Antwerp and Cologne; Frankfurt, and Munich. Visa cardholders can unwind during summer vacations in the Chic Outlet Shopping villages, enjoying restaurants, cafés and open-air promenades in beautifully designed, distinctly European village settings, offering superior service and genuine hospitality.
