Singapore-based OTA Asiatravel.com and M Lhuillier Financial Services have inked an agreement to make travel easier and more accessible for travellers in the Philippines.
The deal will enable consumers to enquire, book and pay for Asiatravel.com travel products at M Lhuillier’s 2,000-plus stores throughout the Philippines.

Asiatravel.com will power a travel website for M Lhuillier and its travel specialists will train staff in the financial services company’s stores on how to serve customers’ travel enquiries and process bookings.
Nikki Rocha, Asiatravel’s executive vice president for the Philippines, Hong Kong and Thailand, said: “Unlike in the past, travel products were only more accessible in the cities or areas close to the cities. This partnership is extending our reach to the Filipinos not just to those with access to the Internet or with credit card, but to everyone even in the remote areas of the Philippines.”
