FX Online Payment Gateway


There are many challenges when buying a foreign point-of-sale fare with regards to exchange rates, knowing your “all-in” costs including bank fees. Today an agent can look up the overseas rate and convert it in the GDS to calculate the home currency value – in reality this exchange can be very misleading as it does not include exchange fees and bank charges. Credit card payments can also be a problem as the exchange rate can change significantly between the purchase date and the credit card statement cycle. That is why eGlobalfares has worked with AFEX (Associated Foreign Exchange) to offer our “Payment Gateway” facility, to simplify these transactions and save you time and money and provide peace of mind.

eGlobalfares provides a guaranteed cash purchase price in your home currency at the point of booking and ticketing. Payment Gateway then allows you to make a domestic payment (in38+ currencies) as opposed to a foreign wire making the payment process much more cost efficient.

In Summary; you know exactly what your local cost is before you buy and dramatically reduce bank imposed fees you normally incur.

In addition to our Payment Gateway facility, we can also offer eGlobalfares subscribers other AFEX (Associated Foreign Exchange) for your other foreign exchange requirements.

eGlobal24

The new eGlobalfares Emergency After-Hours Service called “eGlobal24” powered by Travel Helpline/ Agent24 provides Agencies selling tickets the ability to offer this critical service and have the costs covered by the agency calling in. The Agencies buying tickets will have the peace of mind that they can get ticketing and reservation assistance from their trusted supplier 24/7/365 no matter where in the world they are located at a low per call cost of $20.00 USD per call, plus minimal transaction fees, where applicable. This service is designed for the agents within the agency to use it and NOT for the actual traveler. However, if suppliers and/or agencies would like to make these services available beyond the eGlobalfares portal made reservations, we will be glad to have an agent24 representative contact you.
