Dedicated Merchant account in Your Business Name

Card acquiring, or merchant services, are known for being incredibly difficult for a travel company to attain in the UK. This is purely due to the perceived risk of the travel industry. However, by becoming a PTS member you are completely Package Travel Regulation compliant and you have taken all steps required to secure your client’s monies – you have depleted the risk to a merchant provider. Furthermore, PTS have developed strong partnerships with merchant providers for our members and we will process the application for your travel company.

Once you have your own merchant account you will need a payment gateway provider. This will enable you to process card payments either via your website or via the telephone. PTS is proud to be working with one of the UK’s largest payment gateway providers, SagePay.

The PTS team will also assist you in setting up the gateway interface with SagePay. Your gateway is linked to the PTS back office system that you will have access to, allowing your card payments to be linked to your bookings and trust account.
