You Can Now Add YouTrip Card to Google Wallet

YouTrip card can now be added to your Google Wallet from today. This is good news for Android users. I have added mine without issue. FYI, Apple user is able to add YouTrip card to Apple Pay since August 2023.

Once added, you will be able to use it to pay items that accept Google Pay. And another great thing is that you don’t need your physical card to use it. However, if you are overseas, I suggest that you bring the physical card along.

Here is the Press Release.
