There’s never been a better time to be an online travel merchant. It’s estimated that there were over 1.2 billion international tourist arrivals in 2015, and many of these travellers used digital channels to book their flights. In fact, digital travel sales topped $200 billion last year in the US alone. By 2020, the global online travel market is expected to be worth $817 billion.
Preventing card-not-present (CNP) fraud in the online travel vertical, however, presents unique challenges. Airlines and online travel agents (OTA) often respond to fraud attacks by implementing overly risk-averse measures that result in the rejection of good customers along with the bad. To help provide insights into consumer behavior and fraud patterns in online travel sales, Riskified analyzed its data and compiled the findings into a report on CNP fraud in the online travel vertical.
The report reveals whether fraudsters are more likely to target domestic or international flights, and shows how online purchases can be approved despite mismatches. We share some of the insights included in the report in the article below.Read More
With over 1.2 billion international tourist arrivals registered worldwide in 2015, the online travel industry is experiencing an explosion in demand. Online travel merchants can take advantage of the growing number of travelers who use digital channels to book their flights. Digital travel sales in the United States alone were valued at over $200 billion in 2015, and globally, it is projected that online travel revenues will reach $762 billion by 2019.
Riskified’s work with leading travel merchants, as well as Fortune 500 companies across verticals, has given us great insight into helping merchants overcome the CNP fraud challenges they face. We are currently in the process of compiling a report sharing data about fraud patterns in online travel, and best practices for travel merchants looking to safely increase approval rates. Following is a sneak peek at the report, which will be published in the coming weeks.Read More
