Visa has secured its seat as the preferred payment partner for taxi booking mobile app Easy Taxi in Singapore.
From today till 21 February 2015, Visa cardholders will enjoy S$3 off on their rides, and are exempt from surcharges and additional fees when they use their cards to pay for their Easy Taxi rides.
The move to make Visa as the app's preferred card is driven by Singapore commuters' preferred payment method, said Jianggan Li, managing director of Easy Taxi Singapore. "Since the launch of Easy Taxi Pay in September this year, we have seen Visa topping the list of cards preferred by commuters in Singapore - Visa payments account for as much as 55 percent of all transactions."
Ooi Huey Tyng, Visa's country manager for Singapore and Brunei, added that the partnership will help accelerate the move towards a cashless society. "Consumers in Singapore are increasingly choosing a cashless lifestyle. Visa's collaboration with Easy Taxi will bring about the cashless, convenient lifestyle and ease-of-payment experience to their taxi rides."
