APT Appoints Mint as an Official Payments Partner

Mint Payments (Mint) has been appointed as an official payments partner for Australia’s largest locally owned touring and cruising group, The APT Travel Group (APT). The agreement will see brands under the APT Group leveraging the new MintEFT platform’s ability to facilitate real-time supplier payments between agency partners.

In addition to the raft of features offered by MintEFT, APT were keen to join the payments platform of choice of their valued travel agent partners (such as Helloworld, Flight Centre Travel Group and Express Travel Group, and more) that have all signed up to the MintEFT solution, enabling a seamless and secure process for transacting between agents and all of APT’s brands, APT, Travelmarvel, Botanica, Captain’s Choice and Antarctica Flights. Another benefit was the ability to utilise Mint’s APIs to integrate MintEFT with APT’s reservations system, making the process easier and more efficient.

“We are very pleased to offer Mint’s payment solution for our valued travel agent partners. We always ensure we do everything we can to offer the most seamless transactional process possible, and MintEFT will allow us to do that.”
