With an aim to provide its customers with various value-added services and the convenience of availing these services all under one roof, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, BBK held a press conference on the 14th of December at its Head Office in Manama and announced a tie up with Dadabhai Travel, one of the Kingdom’s leading travel agencies.
The signing ceremony which was graced by Abdulkarim Bucheery, CE of BBK and Mohammed Dadabhai, Chairman of Dadabhai Travel took place on the same day and was attended by GMs and senior management of both organisations as well as GMs from Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, and Jet Airways.
In this visionary collaboration, Dadabhai Travel, along with the above mentioned airlines and with Avenue Car Rental, will now offer special travel related deals, promotional offers and exclusive holiday packages for BBK customers through the Adliya Financial Mall, Budaiya Financial Mall and City Centre branch as a start with a plan to expand the coverage to other Financial Malls at a later stage. While adding to the numerous services that BBK provides its customers with, this will come as an exclusive service via dedicated travel counters manned by bi-lingual professional consultants of Dadabhai Travel at the above stated venues that will be available to service customer requests in line with the Bank’s working hours.
“We are very proud to have established this partnership with Dadabhai Travel as they are one of the leading travel agencies in the Kingdom and a trusted name for years. Our aim at BBK has always been to ensure that the widest range of services are made available to our customers and what better brand to affiliate ourselves with non other than Dadabhai Travel. Our Bank has been a trusted brand for more than 35 years and we can say the same for our newest partner. With this alliance of two strong brand names coming together, the breadth of services as well as the level of service provided will result in a significant added value for our customers and that is our goal,” were the words used by Mr. Bucheery to express his sentiments at the announcement of the partnership.
Mr. Dadabhai shared his thoughts by saying, “Dadabhai Travel has been one of the most progressive travel agencies on the island and for over 25 years now, we have achieved and maintained our position as one of the market leaders. This partnership with BBK goes to strengthen our standing even further as we share a lot in common, mainly our well established backgrounds and good will in the market. We look forward to a long term, fruitful and successful business relationship with BBK and hope to service their Financial Malls customers’ requirements with the support of our dedicated team of travel consultants.”
Aziz Gilitwalla, Managing Director of Dadabhai Travel added that this innovative idea complemented by the strategic BBK locations will bring travel services to the customers door step. Our formidable reputations supported by our emphasis on quality products and comprehensive range of services will be a boon to customers and will remain an unparalleled concept.
The Bank encompasses the true meaning and concept of Financial Malls as this tie-up now makes available an additional value-added service to its customers.

added services from CrediMax credit cards, Western Union money transfer and Secura insurance via dedicated counters across its Financial Malls.
