“For Travel Buddy, we wanted to offer our customers a superior digital experience. Everything is done instantly through the BFC Pay mobile app, whether applying for the card, loading the money or buying FX. We want customers to travel cash-free and give them the most cost-effective solution on all their international spending, be it booking tickets online or shopping while you travel”, said Davis Parakal, General Manager, BFC Payments.

Speaking on the collaboration, Vaanathi Mohanakrishnan, Business Head, MENA, M2P Fintech said, “We are excited to partner with BFC Payments to offer the multicurrency travel card.
