Given the fame of Maldives as one of the top traveler objections for Indians, Mastercard as of late declared the send off of its Precious program in the Maldives during an occasion at Hulhumalé. The program will empower homegrown and worldwide voyagers who are Mastercard cardholders to have selective admittance to uncommonly planned encounters across five atolls of the hypnotizing country of islands, and all the more such increases will follow thusly.
Maldives is the newest location in South Asia to join Mastercard's prestigious Priceless programme, which features a carefully curated list of locations that provide cardholders from all over the world with exceptional experiences. The initiative is intended to support the Maldives' tourist sector while highlighting the distinctive and genuine experiences that the nation can provide to a large international audience.
"The idea that experiences are more significant than material possessions is what drives the success of Mastercard's global Priceless programme. Maldives will now be a part of Mastercard's expanding Priceless programme, which now includes more than 40 locations. In a crucial period when tourism is once again on a development trajectory, the Government of the Maldives has provided its experience, and Mastercard values this valuable collaboration, said Sandun Hapugoda, Country Manager, Sri Lanka & Maldives, of Mastercard.
Dr. Abdulla Mausoom, the Minister of Tourism for the Republic of the Maldives, stated that as tourism accounts for 47% of the country's GDP, the country actively supports projects that aim to enhance this sector. The Maldives' government is grateful to Mastercard for bringing the international Priceless programme to its territory, and we are sure to provide discerning tourists with an outstanding experience.
Mastercard's Priceless programme has carefully selected five inaugural experiences from atolls with distinctive geographies and services in order to appeal to the preferences of today's international travellers. Many more amazing experiences will be added to this exciting list as the programme develops. At Sultan Surf Break, visitors can ride exhilarating waves, paddleboard among gorgeous manta rays, or fish for tuna using the old-fashioned pole and line technique. On the southern island of Fuvahmulah, you can go on a nature walk and then take a spiritual mud bath to help you connect with nature. Or spend a night camping on an uninhabited island to experience total seclusion.
Beyond Priceless, Mastercard is actively involved in the Maldives, engaging with the government and other stakeholders to support the economy of the nation. In the Maldives, Mastercard's initiatives are concentrated on promoting tourism, digital innovation, and financial inclusion. The launch of Priceless Maldives is anticipated to pave the way for other initiatives that will benefit both parties.
