KUALA LUMPUR: Existing and new Hong Leong MATTA credit card users will be able to enjoy special privileges at the WITM-MATTA Fair that will be held from Sept 6-8.
One of the highlights for existing cardholders is that they will be able to enjoy a 12-month, 0% interest instalment plan for purchases worth RM1,000 and above at the fair, while new card applicants will receive travel-related gifts and a multi-plug power adaptor upon approval of their application.
“In addition, those who spend at least RM1,000 within 60 days of the card’s approval date will get a trolley bag,” said Hong Leong Bank personal financial services (unsecured lending) general manager Genista Tan at a press conference here yesterday.
According to Tan, Hong Leong MATTA credit card holders will enjoy free entry to the WITM-MATTA fair at the Putra World Trade Centre via a VIP express lane, and if a friend comes along, he or she also gets in free with the cardholder.
The credit card also offers complimentary travel insurance up to RM1.7mil, including coverage for overseas medical expenses, and loss of money and valuables, including to snatch thieves, while overseas.
Fair adviser-cum-patron Datuk Mohd Khalid Harun said MATTA would also be launching the MATTAKad during the fair.
“Some 50,000 cards will be given out to our customers when they buy entrance tickets,” said Khalid, who added that those who purchase their entrance tickets online would be given the card when they collect their passes at the counters.
“Those with the cards will enjoy discounts, collect points that are redeemable for items, as well as enjoy other benefits from 2,000 to 3,000 merchants,” he said.
It will be the first time that MATTA, or the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents, is holding the World Islamic Tourism Mart and the MATTA Fair simultaneously.
In conjunction with the fair, top industry players in the Muslim travel business will share with local players, through the WITM 7th Incomthu Conference, on how to successfully market to this segment of tourists.
