FAQ - Travel bank

Here's the low down on Travel bank. We've tried to cover everything but if you have any further questions give us a call on 0861 KULULA (585852)


What is a Travel bank account and why do I have one?

Travel bank is an online account that allows you to pay / part pay for kulula.com flights or British Airways (operated by Comair) flights only. It replaces real cash and can be combined with credit card payments. If you’re a jetsetter all kulula moolah credit is saved in a Travel bank account (If you’ve forgotten your new password please contact the jetsetter team). kulula credit card holders will earn kulula moolah into their Travel bank accounts every time they shop with our snazzy card. If you’ve received a refund or compensation an account is created for you to use at anytime. No combination bookings (flight plus car / hotel) or flight extras can be bought using Travel bank.

Where do I find my Travel bank account?

To access your Travel bank account you need a kulula ID. When you’re paying for a flight, you'll see Travel bank as a payment option or click here to access your account.

How do I access my Travel bank account?

You would have received a welcome email from kulula Travel bank with your login information (it’s the same info as your kulula ID log in).

Do my Travel bank credits expire?

Most credits are good for one year from the date of issuance, unless its kulula moolah. See the breakdown of the validity of credits. You’re able to view each credit’s expiration date on your Travel bank statement. When you use funds from your, credits with the soonest expiration date will be used first. So you don’t loose out. The best part is travel need not be completed by the credit expiration date.

Travel bank and jetsetters

If you were a jetsetter with kulula moolah on 21 June 2012, you will be able to access your Travel bank account with the same username and password that you used for your jetsetter account. If you had no kulula moolah on 21 June 2012 we have created a kulula ID for you with the same username and password, but you will not have a Travel bank account.

All kulula moolah that you had available to you on 21 June 2012 will be valid until 23 December 2012.

I have jetsetter kulula moolah. Where do I find my kulula moolah?

All your kulula moolah can still be used to pay / part pay kulula.com flights, kulula moolah was transferred to a unique Travel bank account, which has been set up for existing jetsetters. You can find all past transactions and balances by logging in to Travel bank with your old log in details. Your login details are the same as what your jetsetter login and password details were.

Where is my kulula moolah? Can I view them? How do I know if they were used or transferred?

How can I earn kulula moolah after 23 June 2012?

You will need to be a kulula credit cardholder to earn kulula moolah. Only kulula credit cards starting with 4303 will qualify to earn kulula moolah on spend. You’ll earn kulula moolah on all your kulula credit card qualifying spend. The more you swipe the more you earn. Qualifying spend is when you pay for goods with your kulula credit card. This excludes certain transactions such as ATM withdrawals, gambling chips and travellers’ cheques. Please refer to kulula credit card terms and conditions for full list of exclusions.

Will I earn kulula moolah when I make a kulula flight booking after 23rd June 2012?

Afraid not, the jetsetter programme has changed and kulula moolah can only be earned through swiping your kulula credit card that starts with 4303.

Why has kulula changed the earning rules with regards to jetsetters and kulula moolah?

kulula will be implementing a global airline solution provider called Sabre, who currently service 250 airlines throughout the world. This new system has forced us to re-look the program and make changes to our business to bring it to standard global practices. Sabre will help ensure that we are able to offer you smarter and better services as well as new tools to make your life easier.

After we reviewed all our current offers and services to see were customers were getting the most value and where they could improve their offers and therefore it was decided to make the changes to the jetsetter programme.

How much kulula moolah can I earn with the kulula credit card

Spend during the month:You'll get back:
R0 - R5 000 = 3% back in kulula moolah
R5 001 - R10 000 = 2% back in kulula moolah
R10 001 - R20 000 = 1% back in kulula moolah

So if you spend just R2 000 on your credit card for 6 months, you'll have R360 in kulula moolah to blow.

How long will the kulula moolah that I earn on my qualifying spend be valid for?

The kulula moolah that you earn on your qualifying spend will be valid for 6 months

I am a Discovery Vitality member and a jetsetter; will I still get my Vitality discount and be able to pay with my Discovery Miles and kulula moolah for my kulula flight?
