Businesses in the travel industry tend to be considered a High Risk Merchant, mainly due to the added risk factor of potential chargebacks, refunds, high volume sales and the fact that the business is based on a future receivables model. Merchants involved in this business find it hard to get accepted for a travel merchant account by banks and credit card processors.
