Benefits resulting from the partnership include "Always on" offers where Visa cardholders can take advantage of great discounts on guest stays, dining and entertainment at all Jumeirah Properties globally. In addition, Visa cardholders will have access to unique culinary experiences prepared by Jumeirah Group's internationally acclaimed chefs. Furthermore, the strengthened partnership also offers "Visa Sundays" - a new promotion conceptualised to reward cardholders with irresistible dining, lifestyle and entertainment offers across the various Jumeirah Group hotels.

In addition, holiday makers can save up to 25 per cent on their next holidays when booking Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts with Visa. Those availing Visa's 'Spectacular offer' will get 20 per cent off on the best available rate, unlimited access to the Wild Wadi Waterpark when staying in Dubai hotels, access to the private beach as well as the Kids Club. Those availing Visa's 'Suite offer' will get 25 per cent off on the best available rate when booking a suite or villa, daily breakfast, exclusive access to Club Lounge, unlimited access to Wild Wadi Waterpark for hotels in Dubai, access to the private beach as well as the Kids Club.

In line with our brand promise, 'Stay Different', we want to ensure that, courtesy of Visa, our guests are treated to a truly personalised and exemplary experience across all our properties in the Middle East, Asia and Europe."

Marcello Baricordi, Visa's general manager for the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, said: "Our aim is to surpass our cardholders' expectations when it comes to offering new and exclusive benefits which enable our cardholders to indulge in unforgettable hospitality experiences. That's why we are excited to be extending our long-standing partnership with Jumeirah Group, unlocking unparalleled experiences for our cardholders across Jumeirah Group's iconic premises. Together, we will showcase the essence of Middle Eastern hospitality, and particularly the UAE's, to our cardholders everywhere."
