Promote the local economy and benefit visitors
To encourage people to consume locally, the economic stakeholders in Crans-Montana are showing their innovation by launching the Crans-Montana Prepaid card, a payment card that can be used in partner establishments in the destination. It’s not just convenient. Thanks to a sum of one million francs released by the local authorities, card users will have the amount on their cards increased by a 20% bonus.
Originally the Crans-Montana Association des Arts et Métiers wanted to modernise its gift voucher system, which was previously printed on paper. Their ambition led local businesses to offer a digital payment card, which is valid in most shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars, hotels and other service and activity providers.
A simple system with a single method of payment, which can be loaded with an amount chosen by the client so that they can benefit from it themselves, or give to friends and family.
