Tourego in the News

Tourego has recently been in the news!

Featured across online, print and radio, Tan Tie Wee, CEO, Tourego explains the concept of Tourego:

“We want everything to be done on the mobile phone,” said Mr Tan.

“For registration, all you have to do is to scan your passport using our app. At the retail store, flash your QR code and a digital receipt will be generated automatically.

“Joining the queue at the airport is probably the most painful part of the refund process and we think this can be changed. My full solution will be to move the declaration process on to the app so that there will no need to stand in line at the various counters or in Singapore’s context, queue to scan your passport at a kiosk,"

Ranita Sundra, director of attractions, dining and retail at Singapore Tourism Board, said: "The Singapore Tourism Board is always keen to support innovative ideas and solutions that could enhance the shopping experience for visitors.

"Mobile payment platforms have been gaining popularity around the world, and Tourego and Alipay have ridden the wave by harnessing such technology to serve visitors in the area of tax refund."
