With utu’s latest promotion, your next shopping spree can help you earn air miles to offset the cost of your next trip. utu is proud to announce its upgraded utu membership, now enhanced with a status match offer, a world-first, in collaboration with Royal Orchid Plus, the esteemed customer loyalty program of Thai Airways International (THAI). This groundbreaking initiative redefines the Tax-Free shopping experience and VAT refund journey, turning them into rewarding adventures.
utu empowers travelers to convert their refunds into rewards offering up to 40% more in valuable air miles.

It’s a revolution that makes every overseas purchase and claiming the refunds an investment in your next unforgettable journey.
Shoppers just need to download and sign up for the utu Tax Free app in two simple steps to receive the utu Tax Free virtual card. All members can enjoy their base offering of 25% more miles for their VAT refunds. Simply use this Card number on any Tax free form in the field of card to receive the refunds. For users who desire even more, utu’s subscription based premium membership tiers offer up to 40% more value. Currently, utu partners with 13 world-class airlines and hotels, and Royal Orchid Plus is the first to launch an innovative status match program, automatically giving their loyal members utu’s premium membership!
By accepting the status match invitation, which is sent to members via email, from Royal Orchid Plus and utu, members can effortlessly match their Royal Orchid Plus membership tier to utu’s premium memberships.
