Providus Bank, one of Nigeria’s newly licensed deposit money banks has launched the “World Elite Mastercard” in Nigeria, providing affluent consumers and frequent travelers with a range of priceless travel benefits and lifestyle privileges both at home and abroad.
This is the first launch of the “World Elite Mastercard” in Sub-Saharan Africa.
During an impressive launch ceremony held in Lagos, Managing Director/CEO, ProvidusBank said “We strive to provide cutting-edge technology that delivers best-in-class customer satisfaction, and our customers demand access to the most innovative solutions. The World Elite Mastercard platform provides access to an exclusive global network of benefits that satisfies their every lifestyle and travel need,”
The World Elite Mastercard card provides the convenience, flexibility, reliability and safety that every premium cardholder expects in the search for the finest that life has to offer. This includes access to loyalty programme upgrades, privileges at luxury accommodation and unforgettable shopping experiences.
Other benefits include access at over 600 airport lounges for the cardholder as well as a guest, priority check-in, excess baggage allowance or hassle-free car rental and exclusive benefits at the world’s busiest airports. Cardholders will have access to personalised services through the Mastercard Airport Concierge.
“The affluent market is increasingly looking for experiences that drive personal growth and happiness, as opposed to the ownership of material possessions,” says Adebanjo. “Our World Elite Mastercard premium offering is specifically aimed at creating incomparable experiences for these discerning consumers and their loved ones by providing hassle-free advantages, savings and privileged access to a rich offering of luxurious travel and lifestyle benefits.” Adebanjo also added “We are delighted to have worked with ProvidusBank as the first bank in Sub Saharan Africa to issue the World Elite Mastercard.”
