“Tourism is one of Ireland’s most important economic sectors and has significant potential to play a further role in Ireland’s economic renewal. Tourism also shapes Ireland’s image and attractiveness as a place to live, work and invest. ” – Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport.

Tourism is a major source of income for many countries and affects the economy of both the source and host countries, in some cases being of vital importance.

In all areas of the tourism industry, having the capability to receive payments through a combination of cardholder present, over the phone payments and online is of increasing importance to maximise revenue. As a PCI DSS Level 1 certified Payment Gateway, Worldnet provides secure card payments to our clients through a variety of methods including Chip & Pin, Virtual Terminal and eCommerce.

As one of the Europe’s largest card payment service providers and working with some of the top names in tourism like Guinness Storehouse, Ibiza Rocks and Moulin Rouge, experience has shown us that if you can provide your customers – whether local or international – with a seamless payment experience, you are more likely to see those customers come back. So, keeping up-to-date with the latest payment technologies is essential.

We offer a variety of services and products that will provide you, as a merchant and consumer, a consistent and impeccable payment experience.

Some of our widely used and appreciated services are as follows:

Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC)

We understand that keeping up-to-date with consumers’ ever-increasing appetite for faster, easier ways to pay throws several challenges at businesses, not least those in the tourism sector. Merchants in this increasingly globalising sector must contend with the added dimension of servicing customers from all over the world.

Our Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) feature provides you with the facility to allow your international customers to pay for their goods and services in their own domestic currency at the point of purchase (this also entitles you to 1% DCC rebate on the total transaction value).

By using the Worldnet Payment Gateway you will have more control when it comes to taking payments from your customers as well as offering a more seamless and hassle-free way of paying.
