Brisbane, Australia – 26 June 2023: Infinity Holidays (The Travel Junction), the leading trade-only wholesaler, is excited to announce the launch of a new partnership with leading industry payments provider Mint Payments to enhance its payment options available to its travel partners.
Les Nelson, Director of Customer Experience, The Travel Junction said, “Our partners told us what they wanted, and we have responded to their feedback by reviewing the available options in-market and launching a new payment option with Mint, delivering an EFT payment option. We felt that Mint provided the best solution for our travel advisors, the HELiO platform and our reservation sales team capabilities.
Our new partnership with Mint comes after the recent introduction of our reservation sales team at the beginning of May. We strive to offer flexibility in how our travel advisors choose to book with us – either self-serve with our HELiO booking platform or by calling our expert team. We believe we’ve delivered a first for the industry – a wholesale omni-channel environment - as all bookings made by our reservation sales team will reside in HELiO. This means a travel advisor can access, add travel components and amend an itinerary in HELiO that’s been created by our team as well as now settle payment with MintEFT.”
Alex Teoh, CEO, Mint Payments said “We’re pleased to establish this new relationship with The Travel Junction and support the ongoing diversification of their business by providing a secure and seamless EFT solution to their travel advisors. We see this as the start of a true partnership that we hope to develop over time, and support The Travel Junction as they evolve further to suit the needs of their clients, partners, and the travel industry.”
Mint provides end-to-end payments solutions tailored to the travel industry including integrated C2B and B2B products. MintEFT offers agents, suppliers, and wholesalers a dedicated, fast, and secure bank transfer payment solution with advanced user management capabilities.
Whichever way advisors choose to work with The Travel Junction - via HELiO or our reservations sales team, they can access a global range of over 250,000 hotels, car hire, theme parks & attractions, transfers, dynamic and curated packages. To deliver compelling and creative itineraries, competitive wholesale airfares can be booked with no ticketing fees. The Travel Junction charges zero fees on credit/debit cards and never charges for cancellations or amendments above supplier conditions.
The Travel Junction’s reservations sales team can be contacted on 1800 003 903 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Both its HELiO booking platform and phone reservations sales team is supported by 24 x 7 live agent ‘Chat’ support.
