Thomas Cook (India) has revealed the added benefit of Contactless Payments on its Prepaid Cards (the Borderless Prepaid Card and One Currency Card). With this unique contactless feature, the Company’s prepaid card users can now shop on the go, faster than ever – with merely a tap. The launch reiterates the company’s focus on technology in driving customer experience.
Contactless payment is a secure method that enables consumers purchase products and services by using Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology or near-field communication (NFC). To make a contactless payment, the user merely needs to tap his or her card near a point-of-sale terminal; hence also referred to as ‘tap-and-go’. Contactless payment has steadily become a popular payment method for smaller purchases, with the prime advantage of enhancing the speed of transactions. Tap-and-go customers shorten the queue, so to speak, thereby benefiting both the merchant and the customer with a significant saving of time.
Thomas Cook (India) is the leading integrated travel and travel related financial services company in the country offering a broad spectrum of services that include Foreign Exchange, Corporate Travel, MICE, Leisure Travel, Insurance, Visa & Passport services and E-Business.
