KUALA LUMPUR, 13 January 2020 – United Overseas Bank (UOB Malaysia) announced the launch of The Travel Insider, the first online travel marketplace designed by a bank that inspires customers and makes it easier for them to search, to plan and to book their holidays.
The Travel Insider taps UOB’s regional network and local expertise to offer more than 1,000 travel, shopping and dining deals across Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea, Australia, United Kingdom and United States.
Managing Director and Country Head of Personal Financial Services of UOB Malaysia, Ronnie Lim, said, “We have also seen a shift in the way our customers plan and book their travels, with 81 per cent of their travel-related spend last year taking place online, a 34 per cent increase from the previous year 1.”
First launched in Singapore in 2018, The Travel Insider is the result of a collaboration between United Overseas Bank (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 competitive range of flight, accommodation and tour deals.
As part of their planning, travellers are known to spend hours trawling through online and offline resources just to create the itinerary for the best holiday possible. Add to this the chore of comparing prices for hotels, tours or airfares, the volume of information a traveller needs to process can be cumbersome and time consuming.
To take the pain out of the process,UOB gathered top insider tips, curated content to create travel guides and proposed itineraries and worked with its partners to ensure that competitive and extensive deals can be found easily in one location.
