TripAdvisor has joined forces with MasterCard, to offer a series of online offers to credit cardholders.
The partnership has seen the creation of the ‘MasterCard Travel Hub’ – a new area of the travel review site offering a series of destination guides and deals.
Accessible via www.tripadvisor.com/mastercardtraveloffers, MasterCard will offer a series of promotions for travel, dining, shopping and entertainment in five destinations – Beijing, Honolulu, London, New York and Singapore. But by the end of October 2013, this is expected to have increased to Hong Kong, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam.
“We are delighted to partner with MasterCard to provide exciting travel offers and experiences to the millions of TripAdvisor users that come to our site each month to plan their next trip,” said Robin Ingle, TripAdvisor’s senior vice president of global sales. “We continue to seek ways to enhance the overall TripAdvisor travel shopping experience, and we believe this is one way we can add value for our users.”
When TripAdvisor users search for travel information on any of the featured destinations, they will be able to click on MasterCard banners leading to the travel offers section.
The MasterCard Travel Hub will also include TripAdvisor traveller reviews and ratings for hotels, attractions and restaurants as well as recommended itineraries.
