Global payment firm JCB International is launching a contactless card designed for holiday spending in partnership with RuPay and Yatra

The “RuPay JCB Yatra SBI Card Contactless Credit Card”, aims to provide exclusive travel benefits to Indian customers 6 times per year. 

Once consumers sign up for the card, users will receive Yatra vouchers worth up to INR 8250, applicable for flight tickets and hotel reservations on Yatra’s website. 

“We are delighted to be associated with SBI Card, one of the largest credit card issuers in India, and, as they come together to create a path breaking offering in the travel-featured co-brand credit card segment,” states Yoshiki Kaneko, President and COO of JCB International. 

“Together with our esteemed partner, NPCI, I am confident that the card holders will find great value when they use this card during their travel both domestically and internationally, where this card will open the doors for many privileges and offers across our vast international merchant network.”

Furthermore, JCB looks to reward travel-goers by offering six reward points per INR 100 spent on retail outlets abroad as the company looks to provide a beneficial and seamless approach to payments whilst on holiday. 

The card also allows a complimentary cover of INR 50 Iakh for any air accident with a 1% fuel surcharge waiver to customers. 

Kaneko concluded: “Our unique international service, JCB Plaza Lounge, that is a in-city exclusive lounge service in key destination countries is a perfect match with this travel-featured card. 

“We look forward to continuing to work closely with NPCI to make available the best-in-class payment technology allowing our partners to create industry-defining innovative products for their customers.”
