Credit card processing for travel club industry and tour operators. If you own a travel club or a business with tour operators, you probably already understand obtaining credit card processing services can be a challenge. Historically, the travel industry has always been deemed as a higher risk business type by Visa/MasterCard and their processing banks, which means accounts are harder to get approved, and merchants pay higher rates.
There are many factors that cause this such as higher than average ticket size, charge backs and refunds. Studies have shown that consumers are much more likely to dispute a credit card transaction with a travel agency than most other types of businesses.
