Now on its sixth year, Visa Epic Experience’s 2019 program will include over 30 new dining and travel deals for unforgettable experiences in destinations such as Boracay, Palawan, Cebu, Batangas, and Baguio.
One key focus this year is to increase new dining and travel deals in areas outside Metro Manila. Some of the newly added restaurants on the platform include Cicchetti, Ani Restaurant, Dayun Lounge, and Uma Restaurant in Cebu, Forno Osteria and Indigo Restaurant in Boracay, and Santis Delicatessen in Cavite.
At the media launch held at Smith Butcher & Grill Room in Makati, Visa Country Manager for the Philippines and Guam Dan Wolbert shared that “Visa Epic Experiences has been a great way for our cardholders to enjoy life and experiences with their friends and family. We are looking forward to introducing more fantastic deals so that Filipinos and tourists can leverage these rewards and benefits of being a Visa cardholder. Today, we see that dining and travel spend among Filipinos is increasing by close to 20% year-on-year, and are confident that this growth will continue.”
The country’s most popular destinations are also open for getaways. The Farm at San Benito, The Manor in Baguio, The Forest Lodge at Camp John Hay, El Nido Resorts Apulit Island, Misibis Bay, and Crimson Resort & Spa Boracay are some of the latest hotels and resorts opening their doors to join the Visa Epic Experiences platform.
“Continuing Visa Epic Experiences’ and increasing our outreach to include more merchants is the right course of action for us. Businesses that are on this platform benefit greatly and have seen an increase in revenues and customers. Travel partners have seen close to 50% growth in transactions between 2017 and 2018 since they partnered with Visa,” said Dan.
Visa cardholders can enjoy these exclusive offers by presenting their Visa cards at any of the partner establishments. The offers are also available on the Visa Digital Concierge app, where cardholders can make travel and dining reservations through the chat feature available. Terms and conditions apply.
