It is believed that the combination of Pigsback’s unique marketing tool - Empathy Marketing® and the PiggyPoints that encourages customer loyalty, added to lastminute.com’s travel offers will make for an appealing proposition in the UK.

Lastminute.com is already one of several brands, including Blockbuster, UGC Cinemas, and Virgin Wines, to grasp the potential of Pigsback in the UK and commit to a long-term partnership. This is a white label agreement in which Pigsback will leverage lastminute.com’s travel services, content and technology by integrating it into the Pigsback’s Travel Zone section. Pigsback will highlight the offers that are most attractive to its core customer base, which is primarily female, aged 25-35 and in a B/C1 demographic.

Paula Thomas, Pigsback’s newly appointed Travel Director in the UK, says: “The benefit of working with such a well-respected brand as lastminute.com is that not only does it provide our consumers with valuable travel content, but by going through Pigsback.com they will gain PiggyPoints when they book a holiday or flight.

“These points are of genuine commercial benefit to our customers, who are able to get money off deals and flights from such airlines as Aer Lingus and BMI and the PiggyPoints can be claimed in real time and cashed in straightaway,” she adds.

The partnership enables Pigsback to have access to six of lastminute.com’s product areas including Flight Search and Dynamic Packaging (i.e. flight and hotel combination). All search results and transactions will be handled by lastminute.com, while Pigsback will be responsible for the PiggyPoints, which will be fixed per transaction, per booking.

Since Pigsback’s site launch earlier this June, it has caused quite a stir within the UK market with its successful model for creating a rewarding relationship-marketing community: bringing highly targeted offers to consumers through its site or via permission-based email. Its unique marketing model, Empathy Marketing® provides brands and consumers with mutual benefits. It has successfully brought FMCG, retail, entertainment, and most recently with lastminute.com - travel brands together, to target an increasing number of active UK members.
