eNett enables travel agents to reduce payment risks

April 27, 2016

Singapore, 26 April: eNett International, a leading provider of dedicated B2B payment solutions, will be showcasing how Middle East agents can minimise the risks of payment fraud and supplier default through Virtual Account Numbers (VANs) at the Arabian Travel Market 2016.

A recent poll on payment concerns carried out by eNett found the risk of fraud (51%) remained the biggest concern amongst leading Middle East travel agents1. With traditional payment methods limited in the amount of protection they can provide, eNett will be demonstrating why an increasing number of travel companies are turning to eNett VANs to minimise the risk of fraud.
A VAN is an automatically generated MasterCard number used for supplier payments. Eliminating the need for a physical card, a new number can be generated for each transaction – minimising the risk of fraud. Pre-defined payment parameters give control back to travel agents, and protect against misuse. And unlike traditional payment options, sophisticated charge-back capabilities provide protection should a supplier default.
eNett Managing Director and CEO, Anthony Hynes said, “In a fast growing market such as the Middle East, risk of fraud shouldn’t be a barrier to expansion. VANs provide a solution to the payment concerns of agents, minimising the risk of fraud and supplier default. It’s no wonder we are seeing huge levels of interest in VANs, and the market continues to be a key priority for us.”
eNett VANs represent an opportunity for agencies to grow, while managing the costs and controlling the risks. Integration with leading booking and accounts platforms streamline payments processing and automate reconciliation. This frees up time and resources for travel companies to focus on new business and expansion.
The Arabian Travel Market 2016 will be taking place in Dubai, 25 - 28 April. To learn more about how eNett VANs can help your business grow or to arrange a meeting at the show, contact Brian.Staunton@enett.com">Brian.Staunton@enett.com.
