Travel Makes The World Go Round

Allowing your customers to have access to your business anywhere and accept electronic credit card payments anytime is of the utmost importance to travel agencies and online booking engines around the world.

Travel merchants are especially challenged when trying to secure merchant accounts for credit card processing.  This notion is mostly caused by the fact that the time period between the booking date and the actual service tends to be longer than in any other industry. Therefore, the likelihood of a change in situation off the customer or provider is higher, increasing the associated risk exposure as well. As a consequence, most bank acquirers are placing travel clients on their unwanted customer list.

Processing Partners understands the complexity of finding a suitable bank acquiring home for travel merchants while balancing the processing risk. Our bank acquiring partners understand the travel industry and its challenges. The combination of experienced experts lay the ground for long-term processing.

Processing Partners works with companies in the following categories:
  • Vacation Package Sales

  • Tour Operators

  • Timeshare Businesses

  • Open Travel Alliance
  • Travel Agencies or Agents

  • Online Travel Agency

  • Hotel and Lodging

  • Airline Ticket Sales

  • Reservation Companies

  • Membership and Club Programs

A majority of travel related transactions occur long before the delivery of the actual product or services, and this is referred to as deferred delivery – for this reason travel merchants are viewed as high-risk.

The worldwide cruise industry is a $39.6 billion market, growing steadily at 6.9% compared to 2014 and currently carrying 22.2 million passengers per year. Research identifies a global trend that will serve to marginalize North America as a source market – cruisers from Europe, Asia and Australia are coming to account for more of the global cruise industry than ever before. At the same time, cruise lines have begun to attract new, young target groups by identifying and catering to their desire for a diversified yet affordable holiday experience.

Facilitated by increasingly powerful and user-friendly technology, m-commerce is also claiming serious market share – for example, 66% of same day hotel reservations were made from smartphones in 2014, and the year-over-year growth in the smartphone and tablet device categories is staggering.

In the coming years, the demand for car rental services is projected to increase worldwide. Some of the major factors driving this growth are the rising global tourism industry, as well as the expansion of leading car rental companies into developing regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America. While global and regional niche players are competing for market shares among this increasingly international customer base, the highest incremental revenue opportunity of the next decade is anticipated to lie within the mobile application segment. According to a 2013 study, already 58% of U.S. consumers had used their smartphone browser to book car rental and 40% had used a smartphone app. Travellers are increasingly relying on mobile devices to find the best offers after arriving at the point of their destination, as a rise in last-minute bookings suggests. Excelling in the digital market space has already become paramount for car rental companies to drive revenues – in particular, incorporating innovative and user-friendly mobile payment options that increase conversion rates and repeat bookings.

With the advance of technology that enables everyone with internet access to book a vacation directly with airlines and travel providers, travel agencies worldwide have suffered from declining customer numbers since more than a decade. But despite this steady shift toward online channels, certain segments of the traveling public appear to be returning back to travel agents – e.g. in dealing with unusual locations, high-end luxury or with specialized travel. These customer segments particularly enjoy the convenience of not having to search, compare and book in their own time, but to have someone understand and match their needs on every level. Interestingly, it is exactly these customer segments that have shown to outperform travellers booking via other channels, with regards to number of trips taken (4.81 vs. 3.93 trips), length of time travelled (8.2 nights vs. 6 nights) as well as average daily spending ($494 vs. just $238). The opportunity for travel agents lies in meeting these valuable, high-margin customers on the channels that they individually prefer, offering high-end travel services that distinguish them from the abundance of online booking platforms.
