Amadeus travel customers will be able to offer more payment choice to their travellers, as they can now accept more payments in more countries and in more currencies through Worldpay’s range of payment solutions.

As authorisation is integrated into the ticketing and selling flow, the Amadeus Payment Platform ensures a fast and easy payment process to all its users. Enhanced transaction information also facilitates the payment reconciliation.

The APP also offers travel tailored functionalities that provide a secure payment environment to travellers and travel providers. A single connection to the APP gives access to a variety of payment options, streamlining the payment process as it eliminates the need to integrate additional payment providers.

Celia Pereiro, Head of Travel Payments at Amadeus, said: “We are pleased to partner with one of Europe’s largest payment services providers. Worldpay will help us to fulfil our customers’ payment needs across the globe through a simple payment experience offered to their travellers. With our unique position at the travel and payments crossroads, we are confident that more and more travel providers will acknowledge the value of the APP as they discover a vast, growing range of payment alternatives.”

Amadeus and Worldpay are also working together to optimise the payment process and maximise transaction acceptance.

“The travel industry is global by its nature and travel providers should have the payment options to match this global scope,” said Kevin Dallas, Chief Product & Marketing Officer, eCommerce at Worldpay. “Emerging markets represent a huge growth opportunity for Amadeus. We are really excited to work together to provide a streamlined payment process suited for Amadeus’s wide customer base as they look to expand.

“Our portfolio of over 120 local currencies means Amadeus customers can grow their reach as they are able to accept payment from consumers across regions in their local currency. We are eager to make a strong foothold in the travel industry thanks to Amadeus.”
