House of Travel Appoints Mint as Exclusive Payments Partner

Sydney, Tuesday 18 July 2023: Mint Payments is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive new partnership agreement with House of Travel. The agreement will see Mint provide payment services across House of Travel’s New Zealand network.

The agreement is across Mint’s Virtual Terminal and EFT products, and will see them available to House of travel’s network of more than 80 agents across the retail, Orbit World Travel and Travel Advocates brands in New Zealand.

Integrating with House of Travel’s mid-office system – Dolphin – the partnership will empower agents with integrated payments solutions to assist with day-to-day efficiency and reduce administrative costs.

The agreement comes as Mint’s EFT solution has moved to offering two-day settlement, which is now available for payments to over 25 major suppliers currently using MintEFT in New Zealand.

“We are delighted to announce our exclusive partnership with Mint Payments, bringing a revolutionary transformation to House of Travel's payment services in New Zealand,” says House of Travel CEO Bruce Parton.

“By integrating Mint's payment services into our agents' operations through Dolphin, we enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and offer seamless transactions. Together, we redefine travel experiences with unmatched convenience and exceptional service” Parton added.

Mint CEO, Alex Teoh, said “We are excited to be partnering with such an established, respected and loved independent New Zealand based group. House of Travel has a legacy of growth and innovation in the industry, and we are pleased to be a part of the next stage of that. We look forward to working with both House of Travel and the agents themselves to meet and exceed their goals”

Mint’s relationship with House of Travel through the agreement is a natural addition to the relationship with House of Travel’s Australian subsidiary, TravelMangers, for MintEFT and Virtual Terminal.
