Dubai, UAE - 20 July 2017:  After successful implementation across its tajawal.ae domain in January 2017, tajawal, the Dubai-based online travel-booking site, has further collaborated with Visa to provide Visa Checkout to its customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

As the first online travel agency in the MENA region to integrate Visa Checkout on their website earlier this year, tajawal is now rolling out the service across multiple markets to provide users in the region with the most convenient booking process possible. 

Visa Checkout offers cardholders a simple and secure digital payment method that allows for registered users to complete their purchase at the click of a button. By logging into their Visa Checkout account, payment and billing information are automatically populated, eliminating the step to manually enter the information with every purchase. More than 300,000 online merchants worldwide, including some of the largest global retailers, now offer the service, while more than 20 million Visa customers have registered with Visa Checkout.

Muhammad Chbib, tajawal co-founder and CEO said, “Hassle-free and secure payment is one of the main considerations for online shoppers and with Visa Checkout, we are not only offering them a solution provided by a globally trusted source, we also simplify their experience compared to the traditional checkout process, especially when they book flights and hotels with tajawal on mobile devices.”

According to Mohamed Meabed, tajawal co-founder and CTO, “Travelers in the region have become more comfortable with online travel bookings and have evolved to expect more sophisticated technology and flexible payment options when they make online purchases. With more than 4,000 Visa Checkout bookings on our UAE platform per month, since launching the service six months ago, we can clearly see that our users appreciate the convenience and security the new payment method provides.”

Ahmed Gaber, Visa’s General Manager for Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain, said: “Innovations like Visa Checkout help to remove friction from the e-commerce payment process, bringing significant benefits to both the customer and the merchant. With Visa Checkout integrated into its systems, tajawal can now offer its customers an online payment experience that is as easy, convenient, and seamless as swiping a Visa card in a traditional retail setting.”

To promote the launch of Visa Checkout as a payment option on tajawal.sa, a special offer on all flight and hotel bookings can be redeemed by registered users, who choose to pay with Visa Checkout on tajawal.sa until August 18th, 2017.
