As has been showing promising results globally, the online travel industry is about to reach pre-pandemic growth levels, primarily in rising economies like Latin America and Africa.

Now is the ideal moment to expand, scale up and take full advantage of these key economies. With EBANX, you can offer a localized experience through a single integration – paying your hosts, tour operators, and property managers quickly, securely, in their local currency and receiving in USD while providing local language support.

Uplift your providers' retention and satisfaction rates by paying them locally in Latin America quickly and safely with a 94% average success rate. Relying on traditional payout systems can delay payments due to tax complexity, regulations, currency fluctuation, and other issues. Our Payout solution reduces operational overhead by supporting single and mass payouts, streamlining payee onboarding, and allowing several payment methods – including bank transfers, digital wallets, instant payments and being fully compliant with all local regulations, confirming payments in under 10 minutes (for alternative payment methods) and up to 2 business days (for bank transfers).
As a low-margin and highly competitive industry, pricing payment services as low as possible is critical for OTAs. Therefore, installments can ensure higher conversion rates once travelers can split the total amount of a plane ticket or hotel accommodation. Paying the monthly cost in local currency is a distinguishing feature in the customer decision-making process and a must-have payment feature for OTAs. By offering installments as a payment alternative, you increase the purchasing power of your audience, encouraging them to purchase at higher amounts.
