Discovery Bank recently announced a major upgrade to its Vitality Travel offering – the ability to find and book flights directly in the Discovery Bank app. This will transform the travel planning process into a smooth and simple experience, making it the best option in terms of speed, choice, and value. The app also incorporates all discounts and rewards offered by partner airlines, making it the most affordable way to book flights.
With the renewed desire to travel, global spending has returned to pre-Covid levels. In December, Discovery’s banking clients who used the Vitality Travel platform to book their flights saved an average of R800 per flight. The Vitality Travel platform, which offers flights, accommodations, and car rentals at great discounts, has been extremely successful since its launch 11 months ago with clients having booked 430,000 flights with a total retail value of over R1.1 billion.
The latest version of the Discovery Bank app allows clients to browse local and international flights, select and filter their search results, see discounts applied, and manage their travel itineraries in real-time. With immediate credit limit increases, clients can pay for their flights seamlessly from their Discovery Bank cards, accounts, or with Discovery Miles.
In addition to the convenience offered by the in-app flight booking feature, Discovery Bank clients also receive 10-75% off on all local flights and international flights on Emirates, British Airways, and Qantas by booking through Vitality Travel. With the Priority Fast Track and premium lounge access, Vitality Travel makes traveling easier, more convenient, and more affordable.
According to comparison data, Vitality Travel offers the best discounts in South Africa compared to other major bank offerings. The discounts increase as prices rise, making it an even more valuable proposition. CEO of Discovery Bank, Hylton Kallner, stated that their goal is to deliver the best travel experiences from start to finish and this latest development is a major step towards achieving that goal.
In conclusion, the Vitality Travel platform is now available in the Discovery Bank app, making it easy and secure to book your flights in minutes on your smartphone. With the best discounts, the ability to find and book flights directly in the app, and the added convenience of immediate credit limit increases, Discovery Bank clients are sure to have a seamless and affordable travel experience.
