Viber Out allows users to call mobiles and landlines worldwide at low rates. Thanks to new partnership, travelers in selected airports are now able to get more credit via TravelersBox kiosks
Tel Aviv, Israel, April 25, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Travelers can now credit their Viber Out accounts directly in international airports via TravelersBox kiosks. These kiosks allow travelers to deposit their leftover foreign coins and bills into various eWallets and online accounts, now including Viber, before departing for their home country.
Currently, TravelersBox kiosks operate in Manila (Philippines), Tokyo (Japan), Milan (Italy), Toronto (Canada), Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara (Turkey), Tel Aviv (Israel) and Tbilisi (Georgia), and very soon will be launching in India and other airports throughout Asia.
TravelersBox fees may vary based on the location, transaction amount and product, ranging from 3%-7%.
“TravelersBox already operates more than 75 kiosks in eight countries and plans to expand even further throughout Asia. Just this year we’re launching 150 more kiosks, which is why we are very excited to have this partnership with Viber,” said CEO TravelersBox Tomer Zussman. “Enabling better ways to connect with people is crucial for travelers, so this collaboration just made sense,” he added.
“When we learned about the solution provided by TravelersBox, we immediately understood the value it holds for Viber Out users,” said Robi Kopel, FinTech Lead at Viber. “Our goal at Viber is to connect users all over the world. We’re very happy to be working with TravelersBox to offer a way for travelers to convert their left over currency to Viber Out credit to contact loved ones.”
