Travel Services Merchant Account

Travel services merchant accounts are among the highest risk, as far as processing goes. Data illustrates that consumers are more likely to chargeback transactions with travel agencies or travel services than most others. This is due to the fact that the services, tickets or hotel stays are paid for in advance and not rendered at the time of the credit card being charged. Most of the time, credit cards are being charged in a “card not present” environment, meaning on an e-commerce website or over the phone, making the merchant more likely to receive disputes and chargebacks.
