Miconex have the pleasure of working with towns and cities across the UK to help them develop new gift card programmes using the existing Visa infrastructure.

Kendal Business Improvement District had already researched local currencies so when Sarah Williams (BID Manager) found out about The Perth Gift Card she immdeiately wanted to find out more and then go on to develop her own programme which is now accepted by over 130 Kendal businesses.
The beautiful Isle of Arran may be the only island in Europe with their own hyper-local currency! Thanks to this go to Visit Arran for identifying that a gift card programme that can be used across all the key businesses on the island would make a perfect gift and of course, the lucky recipients need to visit the island to redeem it!
