Lastminute.com launches first physical gift card
Online travel business Lastminute.com has launched its first physical gift card which is being sold in Morrisons and Tesco stores from this month.
Made from recycled plastic, the card is being offered nationwide in 196 Tesco stores and 490 Morrisons supermarkets with the value ranging from £25 to £150. The gift card is also available online through Amazon with the value of £10 to £150.
Lastminute has recently announced that sales and bookings have returned to pre-pandemic levels. It said sun and beach locations have been the most popular as people get back to taking overseas holidays following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.
Guk Kim, chief operating officer at Lastminute.com, said: “The great spike in bookings for lastminute.com in the past weeks proves that Brits are more keen than ever to return to travel, and with the launch of our new gift cards lastminute.com is hugely proud to be able to offer the ‘gift of travel’.
“Being stocked by some of the UK’s major retailers including Tesco, Morrisons and Amazon allows us to reach millions of people across the country looking to gift friends, family and loved ones. This new gift card comes just in time for the summer period as we expect the season to be in line with pre-pandemic levels.”
The gift card balance can be used for any part of the business including flights, train journeys and hotel stays.
