The new partnership aims to empower travellers to be their own travel agent. This includes planning and tailoring trips to consumers’ own personal desires and budget. The interactive travel platform will take advantage of Worldline’s acquiring solution and payment services, integrating them alongside its own systems to build a state-of-the-art booking engine for individual travellers to enjoy a more seamless and efficient customer experience.

The era of the post-Covid globetrotter

As global travel continues its strong recovery path after Covid, travel itineraries are becoming more complex and demographics are shifting. In response, the industry is beginning to embrace a plethora of new booking and payment methods which ultimately provide a better experience for consumers who are, by now, used to simply tapping a screen to make online purchases.

New levels of travel booking excellence

All-in-one planning and booking platform, features a comprehensive planning tool. This searches for and books a complete travel itinerary – with multiple providers – on behalf of the consumer. The real value, realised via this collaboration, is that travellers’ data and payment details only need to be entered once. Worldline’s solution meets the strictest requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Additionally, Worldline builds on its strong European presence to provide an array of cross-border acquiring services, efficient payment processing, and, thus, high conversion rates. Worldline’s own Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) feature allows customers to pay in their own currency. Again, this aims to add to the smooth booking experience. Moreover, benefits from increased back-office efficiency. This is delivered through Worldline’s powerful reporting tool. It gives staff access to customised transaction reports, dashboards, and financial reconciliation. The results in streamlined operations, reduced manual workload, and enhanced financial control.

Chris Lanckbeen, global sales director for travel and hospitality at Worldline, said: “Our partnership with signals the arrival of a new gold standard for payment processing and travel services, providing a seamless and convenient experience for all customers.
