Citibank Recognizes Desert Adventures Tourism as Innovation Partner


For its longstanding and productive relationship with Citibank, Desert Adventures Tourism (DAT) has constantly been chosen by the bank as a pioneering partner for its host of digital technology solutions.

Accordingly, DAT has been recognized by Citibank for successfully adopting the bank’s Early Pay and Virtual Card Account (VCA) solutions.

The award was received by Peter Payet, DAT CEO and Salim Sikander, Head of Finance, during a Citi Roundtable Discussion on the topic of ‘Operating in a Digital Economy’ held recently in Dubai.

On account of increasing business volumes, these technological solutions enabled DAT to streamline payment processes and significantly reduce transaction costs, creating efficiency as well as cost savings by moving away from traditional payment methods to a digital solution.

Additionally, DAT is now able to monitor spend trends, which allows the company to review and renegotiate partnerships and pricing with suppliers.
