Travelling to must-see destinations in the Philippines is now made easy as PayMaya partners with Araneta Center BusPort (ACBP) to give travellers safer and convenient ways to book bus tickets for their much awaited trip around the country.
Travellers can already reserve and pay for their bus seats in advance through the Araneta Center BusPort website with a payment gateway powered by PayMaya Business. This means they can easily use their credit, debit, or prepaid VISA, JCB, and Mastercard to pay for their ticket reservations online.
Aside from that, thrill-seekers can also satisfy their wanderlust by paying their bus tickets in an instant using only their mobile phones through PayMaya QR over the counter at the BusPort. Additionally, they can also choose to use their physical PayMaya card or any VISA, JCB and Mastercard to pay for their tickets for a total cashless travel experience.
Total cashless travel experience
“For the thousands of passengers travelling from our BusPort, this partnership is a premium upgrade they deserve. We know that cashless transactions will further strengthen our mission to provide convenient and swift service to different kinds of travellers,” said Antonio Mardo, SVP Operations of Araneta Center.
The Araneta Center BusPort accommodates travellers heading to and from Central Luzon (Dau, Olongapo, Subic), Southern Tagalog, Bicol regions, Visayas and Mindanao. From their passenger lounge, baggage handling, ticketing system to security features, the state-of-the-art BusPort has been enhancing their amenities to maintain their exceptional service to all travellers in their terminal.
“We’re happy to bring a total ‘cashless’ payments experience closer to the travellers of Araneta Center BusPort. With PayMaya onboard, travellers can worry less on securing and paying for bus tickets–whether it’s online or at the terminal–and start focusing on how they can make the most out of their trip to their favorite Philippine destinations,” said Paolo Azzola, COO and Managing Director at PayMaya Philippines.
PayMaya also gives added safety to travelling passengers as they can bring less cash and utilize their smartphone and card to pay for their travel expenses.
“The risks of carrying big amount of cash when travelling can now be avoided as PayMaya allows travellers to use their card and smartphone as their wallet,” Azzola added.
