The Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) and Al Ansari Exchange have signed an agreement to facilitate payments for a range of tourism and travel-related services.
Under the agreement, partners of Dubai Tourism, including hotels, event organisers, tour operators and tourism companies, will be able to make payments for services through 183 branches of Al Ansari Exchange across the UAE.
The agreement was signed by Ahmed Khalifa Alfalasi, CEO of corporate services and investments, Dubai Tourism, and Rashed Ali Al Ansari, general manager of Al Ansari Exchange.
Dubai Tourism partners can also pay for services through a dedicated payment gateway and a payment centre that can be accessed via the Dubai Tourism portal, as well as directly through bank deposits. Following the agreement, Dubai Tourism has closed its own payment collection counters allowing partners to make payments in cash or by cheque at any Al Ansari Exchange branch for a nominal fee.
