Mexico’s Moneyback & Sunwing Partner Up

Moneyback, a tax-refund company in Mexico, has launched a partnership with Sunwing Vacations.

Moneyback refunds 8.9% of shopping expenses to international travellers. To file a refund, international travellers must request a VAT itemized invoice when making a purchase at any of the 6,000 participating Mexican stores then submit it at the closest MONEYBACK office along with the shopping incentive refund form, credit card vouchers, copy of their passport, cruise ID or immigration form and boarding pass, before leaving Mexico. Travellers will then receive a refund on their credit card within 45 days.

The partnership with Sunwing was kicked off at a recent event in Toronto with the announcement that starting in March, Sunwing Airlines will air a 30-second Moneyback inflight video. As part of the agreement, Moneyback will also be included in Sunwing’s inflight magazine, Wings, along with being integrated into travellers’ e-ticket documentation. Sunwing Vacations will also train its travel agents and Sales Centre staff on Moneyback’s tax-return services.

“We are very excited to partner with Sunwing Vacations, one of Canada’s leading tour operators,” said Danielle van der Kwartel, General Director of Moneyback. “We are positive this collaboration will increase brand exposure and awareness among our target audience and yield very favorable results by the end of the campaign.”

Group Vice President, Lawrence Elliott, added: “We are always looking for ways to enhance our customers’ overall vacation experience so a partnership with Moneyback seemed like an obvious extension to the range of services we already provide to our clients. We are excited to partner on this initiative that will save our customers money while they are away.”
