Why are travel and vacation businesses considered a high-risk industry for credit card processing?

Travel and vacation businesses generally face a higher risk in credit card processing due to several factors. These include a high incidence of chargebacks, which can be attributed to unpredictable weather conditions, the significant time gap between booking and the actual vacation date, high transaction amounts, and frequent card-not-present transactions. All these elements contribute to the financial uncertainties and increased risk associated with processing credit card payments in the travel industry.

What subtypes of travel businesses are typically categorized as “high risk”?

Within the travel industry, there are specific subtypes that are more prone to be considered "high risk" by credit card processors. These include timeshares, airlines and travel agencies, cruises and steamships, tour operators, vacation clubs/travel clubs, and travel agents. Businesses operating in these subcategories face heightened scrutiny and may require specialized merchant services to handle their credit card processing needs.

How can a travel business secure reliable merchant services given its high-risk status, and what tools are available to facilitate operations?

If you operate a travel business and are seeking reliable merchant services tailored to high-risk industries, it’s crucial to partner with a provider that has extensive experience in this field. Look for a service with over a decade of merchant account experience, as they will have a deep understanding of the unique challenges and requirements of the travel industry.
