Marriott Bonvoy, the award-winning global travel programme by Marriott International, has partnered with Emirates NBD, a leading banking group in the Middle East, North Africa and Türkiye (MENAT) region, to launch two new co-branded credit cards in the UAE in collaboration with Mastercard.

One of the cards, a World Elite card, will act as a replacement for the existing award-winning credit card between Emirates NBD and Marriott Bonvoy, upgrading the benefits system by offering new premium features for both new and existing cardholders. The second card, a World card, is a brand-new option that will offer unparalleled travel experience and related benefits for a broader audience.

Commenting on the new launches, Sandeep Walia, chief operating officer – Middle East, Marriott International, said: “We continue to explore ways to provide Marriott Bonvoy members in the UAE with unique and diverse travel experiences, along with personalised benefits that they can access in market and across the globe. Through the launch of these credit card offerings and the expanded collaboration with Emirates NBD and Mastercard, we aim to reach more travel enthusiasts in the UAE and provide them with a seamless experience to enjoy more member benefits and maximise rewards on everyday purchases.”

Both options give cardholders the ability to earn Marriott Bonvoy points on their daily purchases, along with access to Elite status, exclusive benefits, and unique experiences across Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of more than 30 hotel brands and 10,000 global destinations.

Designed to appeal to different consumer segments through two distinct Mastercard tiers, both cards are available now with rich limited time offers, awarding up to 200,000 bonus points or two Free Night Awards for new Cardholders.

Marwan Hadi, group head of retail banking and wealth management at Emirates NBD, said: “As a homegrown institution dedicated to the empowerment of our valued customers, Emirates NBD is delighted to extend our historic relationship with Marriott Bonvoy to introduce new, world-class experiences for our customers while supporting their financial choices. The addition of the Marriott Bonvoy World Elite Card to the Emirates NBD card portfolio provides our cardmembers with new opportunities to unlock meaningful value and elevate their travel experiences with Marriott Bonvoy.”

“At Mastercard, we remain committed to best-in-class payment solutions that also provide meaningful, elevated consumer experiences. We look forward to delivering exceptional value to consumers and to setting a new standard for travel and lifestyle in the region with the introduction of these two new cards,” added Amnah Ajmal, executive vice president, market development, EEMEA, Mastercard.
