Manage Payments Securely with Pay Per Link and Amadeus Hospitality

Manage Payments Securely with Pay Per Link and Amadeus

Jonathan Reynolds

While many hotels still rely on manual credit card authorization forms to guarantee a room reservation, this process is needlessly exposing them to greater fraud potential and charge-backs since the card information is not secure. Pay Per Link from Worldline not only solves this problem but also helps hotels increase revenue.

How? With a pre-paid reservation rate strategy, the hotel can offer guests a discounted rate upfront that is non-refundable. The guest has the added incentive to book at a discounted rate, while the hotel receives a secure payment in full that is then entered into Amadeus IDPMS without actually storing the card data. Travelers who’ve paid up front are less likely to cancel than those with a flexible rate, giving hoteliers more piece of mind to forecast their business. It’s a win-win for the property and guests!

Planning for Hospitality Recovery

In partnership with global hospitality organizations HSMAI, IoH, and HOSPA, we developed a series of recovery eBooks to help hospitality professionals chart their course for recovery in the aftermath of COVID-19. Together, we conducted surveys and interviews with dozens of global industry experts and leveraged Amadeus’ internal expertise to compile specific, actionable ways to build and execute recovery plans across marketing, sales, revenue management, and operations.
