Petron teams up with Motac to promote domestic tourism

In welcoming the reopening of domestic inter-state travel, Petron Malaysia has collaborated with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (Motac) to launch a campaign called 'Jom Jalan Jalan'.

Officiated by the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Datuk Nancy Shukri, the five-month-long campaign aims to reward customers with prizes such as holiday packages and cash rewards to explore the wonderful tourist spots in the country. 

“The initiative was done to encourage tourists to travel as well as educate them on how to travel safely” said Nancy. 

In total, the campaign aims to reward 1,156 individuals throughout the five-month period. Holiday packages up for grabs include 3D2N travel packages that offer winners a chance to experience nature in comfort and style at some of Malaysia's best glamping sites through glamping staycation, recreational activities or food experiences that are uniquely tailored to its home state.

Among the local resorts and tourism partners that have teamed up with Petron for the campaign are Tiarasa Escapes Glamping Resort, Sunway Lost World of Tambun, Camp Out! At Sunway Lagoon, Orchard Wellness Melaka, Glam Genting, Sepilok Forest Edge, Culvert Santubong as well as VIP Pass Holidays (Malaysia) and Trevo. 


Aside from grand prizes for six winners worth up to RM20,000 in travel packages, cash rewards and Petron fuel, an additional 10 participants standa a chance to win RM5,000 worth of travel packages, cash rewards and fuel monthly from October 2021 to March 2022. There will also be 100 consolation prizes worth RM2,000 given out every month, plus 1,000 weekly prizes of RM200 in Petron Miles points. 


Nancy said that the prizes, inclusive of holiday packages with fuel sponsorship and spending allowance will contribute significantly to the country's economic recovery through the economic activities of the communities involved. 

“These packages will give them the opportunity for various interesting recreational activities such as theme park activities, batik drawing classes and interacting with orangutans," she added.

Faridah Ali, General Manager of Petron Malaysia said, "After being on extended lockdown during this pandemic, we are excited to collaborate with Tourism Malaysia and local tour operator partners to reward some of our customers with these amazing holiday packages to enjoy with their loved ones. We are happy to do our share of promoting domestic tourism and boosting our economic recovery." 

The contest is open to all Petron Miles cardholders who will earn an automatic entry for a cumulative fuel purchase of RM250 in one month to qualify for the Grand Prize lucky draw. Meanwhile, the monthly First Prize draw only requires a minimum expenditure of RM50 on fuel. Naturally, all participants will need to swipe their Petron Miles Card when fueling up for the entry to count.

The 'Jom Jalan Jalan with Petron' campaign runs from October 2021 until March 2022. Visit Petron Malaysia's official website for more information.
