United Overseas Bank (UOB) Malaysia recently launched The Travel Insider, the first online travel marketplace designed by a bank that inspires customers and makes it easier for them to search, plan and book their holidays. First launched in Singapore in 2018, The Travel Insider is the result of a collaboration between UOB and more than 500 leading companies from the airline, hospitality and travel industries to create an online destination where visitors can easily search, plan and book their holidays, featuring a competitive range of flights, accommodation and tour deals.
The Travel Insider taps UOB’s regional network and local expertise to offer over 1,000 travel, shopping and dining deals across Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea, Australia, the U.K. and the US.
“Travel is a high priority among our customers, with one in five UOB Malaysia debit and credit card members travelling abroad at least once in 2019. We have also sensed a shift in the way our customers plan and book their travels, with 81% of their travel-related spend last year taking place online, a 34% increase from the previous year,” says Ronnie Lim, Managing Director and Country Head of Financial Services, UOB Malaysia.
