Wave and Save on KLIA Ekspres with Visa payWave
Kuala Lumpur, 21st September 2017 – Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) is collaborating with Visa International (Asia Pacific) to encourage the use of Visa payWave directly at its KLIA Ekspres gates. Getting onboard KLIA Ekspres is faster with contactless transactions, and now all Visa payWave credit and debit cardholders will get to enjoy 15% off their KLIA Ekspres fare when they travel between Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA & KLIA2) and KL Sentral Station.
“We are committed to working with partners that can provide value-added services for the benefit of our passengers. With Visa payWave, they can quickly board the KLIA Ekspres just by tapping their card at the gate without the hassle of queuing to purchase tickets,” said Noormah Mohd Noor, Chief Executive Officer of ERL.
“As the fastest airport transfer in town, this partnership with Visa fits ERL’s mission to provide a seamless travel experience that is fast, reliable, convenient, and now even more affordable,” she added.
Visa payWave is a payment feature that lets customers use their enabled Visa cards or mobile device at the gate or point of sale (POS). The customer simply waves his card or mobile device in front of the secure reader, instead of swiping it or handing it to a cashier.
Said Ng Kong Boon, Visa Country Manager for Malaysia, “Visa payWave is now embraced by Malaysians and we are seeing double digit month-on-month growth for the number of transactions. By enabling contactless acceptance at KLIA Ekspres gates, international Visa payWave cardholders are also able to use their Visa payWave cards when they travel on the trains. We believe more people will embrace the use of their Visa payWave cards with this attractive offer provided by ERL.”
The 15% discount promotion is now running until 31st March 2018, and is only applicable to transactions using Visa payWave cards at the KLIA Ekspres gates only. This offer is not valid for ticket purchases at the counter, kiosk and online or for travel on KLIA Transit.
