Wema Bank, Intercontinental Hotel Lagos Launch World’s First Pre-paid Card Programme for Hotel Rewards • Initiative allows card holders redeem rewards and spend anywhere in the world

Nigeria’s only 5-star hotel, InterContinental Hotel, Lagos last weekend, launched the world’s first prepaid card for hotel rewards programme in partnership with Wema Bank at an event to mark the launch of its ‘Rewards Club’ in Lagos. The InterContinental Lagos Rewards Club is a points-based bookers incentive programme open to individuals and corporates with a range of exclusive privileges and benefits which will enable members book locally and spend globally with their Wema Bank InterContinental Prepaid Card. According to the exclusive hotel group, corporate and individuals who book rooms, meetings, banquets, with InterContinental Hotel, Lagos get every dollar back by way of points which will be remitted to each booker’s Wema Bank InterContinental Rewards Prepaid Card when due and will also enable the holder spend, using the card, anywhere in the world.
Speaking at the launch event, Segun Oloketuyi, MD/CEO of Wema Bank stated the Bank’s desire to continuously partner with prestigious organisations like the InterContinental Hotel Group to create high-value initiatives and experiences for their teeming clients. He further added that the prepaid card rewards programme being pioneered with InterContinental Hotel is a first worldwide for any hotel rewards scheme and is expected to be replicated by other hotels across the world. This latest partnership is another step in the relationship between both organisations after the successful part-financing of the development of InterContinental Hotel Lagos by Wema Bank which opened in 2012 to great reviews.
