Now you don’t need to qualify for OR use a credit card to realise your travel aspirations!

SAA together with Nedbank has launched the new SAA Voyager Cheque Cardthe first cheque card in the world that allows users to earn air miles. This came in response to growing demands from South Africans from all walks of life for a transactional card that allows them to earn SAA Voyager Miles.

If you think rising fuel costs and a tough economy have ruined your big plans to travel and see the world, SAA and Nedbank say you should think again. That’s because this partnership, which has been helping to realise the travel dreams of millions of South Africans for years, has just launched the new SAA Voyager Cheque Card – the first cheque card in the world that allows users to earn air miles, and makes redeeming them quicker, easier and more rewarding than ever before.

Even if you are not a frequent traveller, the fastest way to earn miles is by using any of SAA Voyager’s Credit or Cheque Cards from Nedbank. Voyager Miles can be exchanged for flights as well as a wide variety of other travel rewards, including stays at selected accommodation partners, car hire, exotic cruises, duty-free shopping, online gifting, and even health spa experiences.

Preferential check-in and lounge access

In addition to being able to redeem Voyager Miles for flights, upgrades and various travel-related expenses, SAA Voyager Premium cardholders enjoy an enhanced travel experience thanks to preferential check-in and lounge access when flying on SAA-operated flights or SAA marketing flights where Mango is the carrier.

Best of all, and similar to the existing SAA Voyager Credit Cards, as an SAA Voyager Cheque Card holder, you don’t have to take that trip of a lifetime alone. The offering has been tailored to include qualifying gold or premium cardholders, one companion ticket per year to a local or global destination depending on their card status and spend threshold.

Earn bonus miles

Apart from the fastest miles earning rate in South Africa with steady accumulation on daily spend, there are many opportunities to earn bonus miles.

These bonuses include 2 500 miles on signing up to the programme, double miles on eligible spend for the first month after the account has been opened, bonus miles when reaching spend thresholds, and additional miles when paying for an SAA flight with your SAA Voyager Card.

Unique card design

The Voyager Premium and Gold Credit cards will also be relaunched with the introduction of a stunningly unique card design, adding more exciting benefits such as preferential discounted flights on SAA operated flights and spend incentives. Nedbank has simplified the card application process as well. You can apply online for your SAA Voyager Card or at any Nedbank branch. The SAA Voyager Cheque Card can also be added to select Nedbank transactional accounts and is available to existing and new clients.
