Singapore – With the goal of ensuring a seamless payment experience for its customers, YouTrip, a multi-currency e-wallet in Singapore, has recently announced updates to its system, enhancing both convenience and security. 

In this release, YouTrip stands out as the first major payment institution to elevate these limits, setting the stage for users to maintain a wallet balance of up to S$20,000 and experience a raised annual spending limit of S$100,000.

This implies a significant improvement from the previous limits of S$5,000 and S$30,000, offering users increased convenience and flexibility when engaging in cross-border transactions. 

In addition to these convenience updates, the introduction of new security enhancements also allows customers to remain vigilant and take proactive measures to safeguard their card information. These measures encompass anti-scam prevention, strategically designed to safeguard users from fraudulent and unauthorised activities.

Speaking about the recent e-wallet upgrade, Caecilia Chu, CEO and co-founder at YouTrip, said, “YouTrip is passionate about making cross-border payments smarter, easier, and more rewarding. Previously, users expressed their desire for a higher flow cap limit to use their YouTrip wallet for purchases such as flight tickets, hotel accommodations, and family expenses.

“Now, with the enhanced limits, it addresses a key pain point for our users who were previously curtailed by the lower caps. This revision to the wallet limits is a game-changer, allowing us to offer unparalleled convenience and open doors to a world of unhindered payment experiences to our users,” Chu added.

Meanwhile, Ariel Yeo, a YouTrip user, also shared his experience with the app, stating, “As someone who travels frequently with friends and family, I am often the planner and accountant of the trips. Before the increased limits, I had to constantly juggle multiple payments using different credit cards for larger expenses like flights and hotels.

“The experience was rather troublesome, as I had to keep track of the expenses on various cards while being subjected to less favourable exchange rates and missing out on YouTrip’s cashback rewards. Now, with the increased e-wallet cap and spending limits, I can easily handle the booking of flights and group expenses, with everyone benefiting from the convenience and savings YouTrip offers! ,” he ended.

Following this milestone, YouTrip has also introduced its newest campaign, titled ‘Trip It to Win It’, scheduled to take place from January 3–16, 2024. This initiative encompasses the giveaway of three pairs of flight tickets to any destination worldwide, along with prizes exceeding a total value of S$20,000.
