Canadians are known explorers. In fact, The Conference Board of Canada reports that Canadians spend more than $3 billion each year traveling internationally. Whether you are going to Italy, Tahiti, Tulum or Singapore, you are likely to bring a credit card with you. Brim Financial is aiming to help tech-savvy travelers fulfill their wanderlust.
Many travelers use rewards points for travel, but blackout dates and inflated point-based travel costs can make the entire process stressful. Rasha Katabi, founder and CEO of Brim Financial, aims to make traveling with loyalty points a much less frustrating process. “With your Brim card, you can actually use your hard-earned points toward travel expenses,” she said.
Instead of choosing your flight from a limited pool of rewards-eligible reservations, Brim points can be redeemed toward any purchase where Mastercard is accepted. Traveling cardholders were a primary consideration when Katabi designed her new credit platform, saying: “We wanted to make your life easier. That included enhancing the travel experience.”
What makes a Brim cardholder’s traveling experience different?
Brim’s open rewards platform allows customers to redeem rewards points anywhere. When they utilize the Brim app, they can seek out the best prices online for a flight, hotel or any other travel expense. “You can travel on your own terms,” according to Katabi.
Additionally, Brim will be offering exclusive reward deals with big names in the travel industry, including airlines, hotels and tour companies. The Brim card offers no extra fees on foreign transactions, saving frequent travelers a lot of cash. Brim cardholders even get access to free global Wi-Fi through Boingo. For those who are routinely on-the-go, the ability to stay connected is invaluable.
Having a Brim card will be a game-changer for those who travel for business or pleasure.
