FairFX Group plc (LON:FFX), the FinTech low-cost currency provider, is excited to be partnering with VizEat, Europe’s largest social dining network. The agreement follows a significant list of other recent complementary deals between FairFX and leading business and organisations.
With both companies focused on making sure their customers get more out of their holiday experience, the new partnership will benefit customers of both FairFX and VizEat. The agreement is designed to offer customers access to unique travel experiences while getting the best value for money when they are overseas. Aligning with FairFX’s core values, VizEat customers can benefit from preferential exchange rates, FairFX prepaid currency card offers and travel money expertise.
Since being founded in 2014, VizEat has 90,000 members from more than 100 countries; the number of food experiences it offers has grown by 50% every month and its website is now available in English, French, Italian, Spanish and German.
The agreement offers customers a discount to enjoy an authentic culinary experience with local hosts, such as a shared meal, a food tour or a cooking class. The customer experience will also be improved through shared tips and advice for all aspects of their holiday.
Ian Strafford-Taylor, CEO of FairFX Group plc, said: “The new partnership will appeal to consumers who actively seek out authentic travel experiences and adds to our growing list of benefits offered to our customers. VizEat helps people to quickly weed out the tourist traps – the inauthentic, expensive restaurants invariably located in tourist hotspots. We’re excited to give our customers access to unforgettable and authentic travel moments through this partnership while at the same time introducing new customers to the cost-saving benefits and convenience of a prepaid currency card.”
VizEat co-founder Jean-Michel Petit said: “We are delighted to partner with FairFX. We believe that the dining table is the original social network and VizEat connects travellers with authentic culinary experiences. By working with FairFX we’re able to offer more travellers the opportunity to make the most of their holidays by meeting and eating with locals, facilitating new friendships and creating lasting memories.”
