Standard Chartered joins Uber in multi-market partnership


Standard Chartered Bank has today announced a partnership, offering all bank credit card holders 25 per cent cashback on global Uber rides.

Standard Chartered credit card holders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and India will benefit from the deal, which is the first multi-market deal for both parties.

With Uber fast becoming a mainstream feature of transport, the partnership with Standard Chartered and Uber will capitalise on Standard Chartered’s large geographical network and large client base.

Sebastian Arcuri, Regional Head, Retail Banking, ASEAN and South Asia, Standard Chartered Bank said: “[This] will engage our clients for both their local and overseas transport needs.”

“There has been a dramatic shift towards digital and cashless payments across the region and we are seeing success in the seamless integration of…services in our clients’ everyday life.”

The partnership is Standard Chartered’s most recent move in its regional roll out of digital services for clients. It follows the earlier initiatives across Asia in the past six months including a suite of video banking, biometrics, and fingerprint and voice technology services.

The Uber cashback benefit is available to credit customers now.
