Nubank Ultravioleta introduces NuViagens platform

Wednesday 29 May 2024 14:50 CET | News

Nubank Ultravioleta has announced the launch of the NuViagens platform aiming to offer customers a complete trip planning solution.


This platform enables users to purchase air tickets and book hotels directly through the Nubank app, aiming to offer competitive prices and flexible payment options. According to Nubank, NuViagens includes a price guarantee feature. Specifically, if a customer finds a lower price for a flight or hotel within 24 hours of purchase, Nubank will refund the difference. The platform also monitors flight prices and suggests the best time to buy tickets. Customers who follow these recommendations can receive up to BRL 500 (USD 96) in reimbursement if the flight price drops within 30 days of purchase. 

The platform allows customers to make purchases in up to eight interest-free instalments via NuPay, which is a payment method exclusive to Nubank. Additionally, users can earn 1% cashback on purchases, with the cashback amount growing at a rate of 200% of the CDI, and the service includes 24-hour travel support through the app’s chat or phone. 

NuViagens is a result of a partnership with Hopper Technology Solutions and will be rolled out to users over the next few months. It will be accessible in the Nubank Ultravioleta app under the 'Ultravioleta Benefits' and the 'Travel and Leisure' sections.
