In an effort to boost our tourism industry, Tourism Malaysia has partnered with Visa to promote Malaysia as an excellent travel destination for international tourists.
Visa will be introducing Visa Preferred Merchant Programme (VPM), which will enable Visa cardholders with access to exclusive offers for accommodation, air tickets, dining, shopping and medical wellness.
Basically, anyone with a Visa card will be entitled to these discounts and special prices to be used within Malaysia or even oversesas!
In fact, during the launch, Visa shared two promo codes that can be used for up to 30% off flight ticket and hotel booking fares: VISAHOTEL30 and VISAFLIGHT30.
Visa is excited to extend our partnership with Tourism Malaysia and launch a specially curated ‘Home Away from Home’ campaign. With the reopening of borders, we are looking forward to being a driving force in boosting tourism growth and promoting Malaysia as a tourist destination post-pandemic.Ng Kong Boon, Visa Country Manager for Malaysia
