Wirecard, a digital financial technology provider, and Ctrip, a large online travel agent in China, have teamed up to launch a multi-currency Visa card.

The card supports seven of the most widely-used currencies, eliminating the need to exchange currency abroad and travel with excessive amounts of cash on hand. The Ctrip branded Visa cards will be issued by Wirecard, and offered to all Chinese Ctrip customers. Ctrip currently has 110 million active monthly users in China.

The Chinese travel agent, a NASDAQ listed company and owner of multiple travel sites including Skyscanner, connects customers to hotels, transportation providers, and tour services around the world. In addition, the card supports currencies from the most-visited regions of the world: Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, the UK, US and the Eurozone. The card is available to Ctrip customers who are Chinese citizens.

Wirecard is a digital platform in the area of financial commerce. For more information about Wirecard, please check out a detailed profile of this company in our dedicated, industry-specific online company database.
