The bank's cardholders can get up to 60 percent discount on the airfares of their partner airlines by using BPI's Special Installment Plan (SIP) with a low monthly add-on rate of 0.99 percent.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Jenny Lacerna, senior vice president and product & sales group head of BPI’s Unsecured Lending and Cards Group, reveals additional perks.
She explains, "There's a three percent rebate if you're a Mastercard holder for a minimum or accumulated spend of PHP25,000.
"If you're a Visa customer naman, you get a PHP3,000 rebate loaded to a BPI prepaid card for a minimum spend or accumulated spend of PHP50,000.
"And also the SIP or Special Installment Plan is available on-site, not online."
The fair brings together all of the bank's existing partner airlines in just one venue, making it more convenient for their customers to assess their travel options.
Lacerna elaborates, "Well we've been partnering with some airlines in the past and some have been going on year on year, and we thought, 'Why don't we put everybody together in one location so customers would have more choices?'
"And if customers would be traveling, for example, one location, why do they need to come back to purchase [for] another location in another month? Might as well just put everything in one location.
"For example me, I would travel to the U.S. in April, but I would like to do something in between, so I would plan ahead and get the most out of one instance."
The first leg took place from October 18 fto October 20, 2019, at the Palm Drive Activity Center, Glorietta 2.
The next one will be held from October 26 to October 27, 2019, at The Gallery, Ayala Center Cebu.
You can also purchase discounted airfare on BPI's website which, as Jenny says, is available "on the 18th onwards up to the 31st" depending on the partners.
Lacerna adds, "We also do travel events in Bacolod and Davao and sometimes in our branches. It depends on the availability of the partner."
The mobile app is also giving away up to PHP800 off on flights to Singapore when you book through the app until October 31, 2019.
You can also get up to 10 percent discount when you spend at least PHP2,500 on flights using your Security Bank credit card until December 31, 2019.
