With the surging demand of international business travel, leading global fintech platform Airwallex is partnering with Agoda, a global digital travel platform, to make travel planning easier for Hong Kong SMEs and startups. Airwallex Hong Kong customers will be able to enjoy exclusive discounts on accommodation bookings using their Airwallex Borderless Cards.
By booking through Agoda's platform, Hong Kong SMEs and startups with Airwallex Business Accounts can enjoy a 7% discount to book selected accommodations and Airwallex customers can enjoy 20% cashback on airfares and accommodation booking around the world, when they use Airwallex Borderless cards for their international travels during the promotion period.
