The alternative to a bank account

Businesses within the travel industry can often face long waiting times and struggle to speak to real people throughout the onboarding process with traditional payments providers. These providers, such as banks, tend to feel no obligation to address specific needs of their customers if they fall outside of predetermined criteria.

Whether you need a multi-currency IBAN or any one of our services, we have dedicated account management and compliance resources to ensure you’re supported every step of the onboarding process and beyond, so you can get back to what you do best: providing travellers with memorable experiences.
