South African Airways (SAA) Voyager partners with the largest fuel retailer in Africa, Total South Africa
SAA Voyager is partnering with Total South Africa to offer SAA Voyager Miles at participating TOTAL retail service stations nationwide. SAA Voyager members can now earn Miles every time they fill up at TOTAL.
“With TOTAL being the largest fuel retailer in Africa and SAA Voyager being Africa's leading airline loyalty programme, there’s a natural synergy between the two partners. We want to give our customers greater value and added benefits, at the same time; we understand their need for quality brands. We therefore have joined forces with SAA Voyager, a premium brand, to give value back to our customers,” explains Qetello Zeka, Total South Africa General Manager: Sales and Marketing.
Voyager is SAA’s loyalty programme which boasts a global membership. SAA Voyager members earn miles when they fly with SAA, other airline partners and non-air partners including amongst many selected hotels, financial institutions, car hire companies, lifestyle-related service providers, and now their first petroleum supplier partner, Total South Africa.
“By teaming up with Total South Africa, we are now able to offer our members yet another opportunity to earn SAA Voyager Miles. This is in line with our efforts to actively extend our range of partners for our valued members beyond airline travel. With 500 participating TOTAL service stations nationwide, we are confident our members will be really pleased with this latest partnership,” says SAA Executive for Customer Loyalty, Suretha Cruse.
SAA Voyager members earn one SAA Voyager Mile for every one litre of fuel purchased at TOTAL, and these Miles can be redeemed for flights, car rental, spa vouchers and lifestyle products or services.
This latest offering offers TOTAL customers a value-added lifestyle experience beyond just the day-to-day necessity of filling up with fuel.
SAA Voyager Miles are only available to SAA Voyager members. Customers who are not SAA Voyager members who would like to take advantage of this benefit from 1 August 2014, need to register to become a SAA Voyager member at www.flysaa.com.
