The "always-on" mantra of modern technology means that travel companies often focus their attention and energy toward consumer-facing areas of their business - social media, mobile, metasearch, and the ongoing tug-of war between suppliers and online travel agencies.

Payments, while a critical part of the customer experience, often plays second fiddle. Yet an effective payment system is a key element of conversion, while payment processing efficiency can have a long-term impact on margin.

As travel technologies and traveler booking behaviors change, so do payment methods and their associated challenges.
