Heritage Bank Limited has entered into partnership with a data company, 7411 Communications Limited, to launch the first ever Tourist master card.

Designed by Enviroque Technologies to ease up stress of carrying cash around by world travellers, the card offers unlimited experience for the novae riche and classy people who wish to travel smart into and around Nigeria.

According to the Head of cards, Heritage Bank, Tobe Nnadozie, the new innovation which was added to the general prepaid series, was designed bearing in mind the comfort and safety of every traveler.

The scheme, which is being operated by 7411 Communications, a National Directory company in Nigeria, is said to be available in Master card and verve options, while it was brought about due to the need to eliminate in total the need to carry cash when coming into Nigeria, and when travelling around Nigeria.

Specifically, the scheme is available for pick up all over designated selling point in Heathrow Airports, Dubai, USA and China. The cards can also be picked up at over 22,000 hotels across Nigeria including the major International Airports in Nigeria.

Describing the features of the unique cards, Head of Technology Administration for Enviroque Technologies –Ms. Denise Cann said the cards can be loaded with ease, using the new MPOS available at designated areas selling and loading bays.

She added that over 200 branches of Heritage bank Nationwide will load the cards easily with cash for travellers or users and that users of the cards needed not to have a bank account before using it and needed not to use overseas cards anymore in Nigeria, adding: “We all can now swipe safe and our cards can receive funds from any account worldwide, which makes it very robust.”
