9 Reasons Why You’ll Love Using BigPay During Your Umrah Travels

Updated: Sep 29, 2022

Can you believe that half the year of 2022 has already passed?

If you haven’t performed your Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca yet, now’s the time to start planning!

While you’re at it, here are nine reasons why you’ll love using BigPay during your Umrah travels to Saudi Arabia.

1. You can use it anytime, anywhere

Your BigPay account comes with a prepaid Visa card which gives you access to over 45 million merchants worldwide. Use it anywhere in the world, like en route to Mecca, or when you arrive.

2. Real-time exchange rates

No need to visit confusing money changers to convert Ringgit to Saudi Riyal. With the BigPay card, you’ll pay real-time exchange rates and nothing else.

Whether it’s paying for your accommodation, kurma dates, souvenirs or dinner, just transact with your BigPay card to automatically pay in Saudi Riyal according to the exchange rate at the time of purchase.

3. Withdraw money anywhere

Need cash? Use your BigPay card to withdraw money in the currency of your travels through any ATM overseas that accepts Visa transactions.

For example, withdrawing Saudi Riyal in Saudi Arabia, withdrawing Japanese Yen as you’re transiting through Tokyo, or withdrawing Pounds during your layover in London.

4. Instant money transfers

Need money in an emergency while you’re travelling? Transfer money instantly, completely free of charge, between two BigPay users.

5. It’s safe

If you’ve lost your card while travelling or encountered potential fraud, use the BigPay app to instantly freeze your card. A quick tap is all it takes.

6. Earn points

Earn airasia points every time you spend with your BigPay card, even while spending in Saudi Riyal! Use these points to redeem major discounts on AirAsia flights and rewards later. Perhaps your next Umrah pilgrimage?

7. Track your expenses

Worried about overspending during your Umrah travels? The BigPay app automatically tracks and categories all your expenses on one screen, so you can see how your budget is doing.

8. 24/7 support

Have a question about your BigPay account during your journey? Our friendly customer support team is available 24/7 through the in-app chat to assist you, no matter what timezone you’re in.

9. It’s free

The best part? BigPay is 100% free to get and free to keep. Sign up in as little as 5 minutes on iOS and Android to enjoy the perfect companion to your Umrah travels!
