Travel merchant account



Solutions for Travel, Tour
& Timeshare Industries

A travel merchant account in real-time with our fraud and chargeback prevention platform.  Leverage our comprehensive analytics and reporting to take preemptive action against chargebacks and win back lost revenue.

Solving the Pain of Payment Processing

Most travel agents and tour agencies spend a majority of their time trying to understand the needs of their customers.  That clarity allows them to use their specialized knowledge about travel options to create a strategic travel plan that aligns with the budget and needs of their customers.

SMB Global works in a similar manner.  We understand that the travel industry is classified as the dreaded “high risk” category and payment solutions are hard to come by.  Travel agencies must take payments in advance, which opens them up to high chargeback ratios and other payment disputes.  You may not be able to control changes in travel plans and unforeseen cancellations, but you can control who you choose to help you navigate your payments.
