We are acquiring a business with a successful track record and attractive growth opportunities, fully aligned with our business strategy of focusing on higher-margin packages, hotels and other travel products. Moreover, the commercial alliance will also allow us to further enhance our wide array of customer financing alternatives.”

The CEO of Falabella Financiero, Juan Manuel Matheu commented: “This alliance will allow us to integrate a better value proposition into our digital ecosystem, significantly improving the travel offering and the digital experience of our CMR Puntos program, making available to our customers the best tourist product content in the market.
