SAA and Nedbank launch SAA Voyager Cheque Card


South African Airways and Nedbank have teamed up to offer a SAA Voyager Cheque Card, which allows users to earn air miles.

The card is Nedbank’s response to growing demands from South Africans from all walks of life for a transactional card that allows them to earn SAA Voyager Miles, so that they can realise their travel aspirations.

All of this without having to qualify for, or use, a credit card.

Whilst most programme members prefer using their miles for flights, Voyager Miles can be exchanged for a wide variety of travel rewards, including stays at selected accommodation partners, car hire, exotic cruises, duty-free shopping, online gifting, and even health spa experiences.

In addition to being able to redeem Voyager Miles for flights, upgrades and various travel-related expenses, SAA Voyager Premium cardholders enjoy an enhanced travel experience thanks to preferential check-in and lounge access when flying on SAA-operated flights or SAA marketing flights where Mango is the carrier.

Qualifying gold or premium cardholders are granted one companion ticket per year to a local or global destination depending on their card status and spend threshold.

Apart from earning miles with steady accumulation on daily spend, there are many opportunities to earn bonus miles.

These bonuses include 2,500 miles on signing up to the programme, double miles on eligible spend for the first month after the account has been opened, bonus miles when reaching spend thresholds, and additional miles when paying for a SAA flight with your SAA Voyager Card.

The Voyager Premium and Gold Credit cards will also be relaunched with the introduction of a unique card design, adding more benefits such as preferential discounted flights on SAA-operated flights and spend incentives.

You can apply online for a SAA Voyager Card or at any Nedbank branch.

The SAA Voyager Cheque Card can also be added to select Nedbank transactional accounts and is available to existing and new clients.
