Modulr has announced the launch of its travel payments solution, specifically designed to address the needs of online travel agents (OTAs) and travel industry intermediaries. The new offering enhances operational efficiency, streamlines reconciliation and cash flow processes, and unlocks margin improvement opportunities within the travel sector. 

The traditional payment infrastructure in the travel industry is often fragmented and outdated, relying on multiple vendors and creating cumbersome manual processes. With the International Air Transport Association (IATA) reporting that 41% of travel firms still place payment inefficiencies as their biggest concern. This not only puts operational strain on businesses impacting tight margins, but also affects supplier relationships and deteriorates the customer experience. 

Modulr’s platform and payment network connectivity are engineered to overcome these challenges and is tailored to the needs of the travel industry

It provides a suite of solutions in a range of currencies that includes virtual cards, account-to-account transfers and customisable notifications, all supported by detailed reporting and accessible through a single API integration and an online portal tailored for travel agents. 

Travel companies can benefit from an array of fixed interchange rates available with both VISA and Mastercard, allowing for customised arrangements with suppliers and responding effectively to changing customer needs. Modulr’s virtual cards are enhanced with advanced authorisation controls ensuring every transaction is transparent, flexible, and secure. 

Myles Stephenson, CEO and Founder of Modulr, said: “Our goal is to alleviate the payment challenges experienced by the travel industry, bringing together our comprehensive suite of virtual card programs with our leading-edge payment and account issuance capability, delivering an all-in-one solution for the travel industry.” 

Modulr’s platform integrates into the payments ecosystem to include a full spectrum of payment functionalities such as virtual cards, collections, disbursements, and supplier payments; encompassing methods like Open Banking, Direct Debit, Faster Payments, Bacs, Chaps, SEPA, and SWIFT.
