European Travel Ventures appoints EQ Global as its payments processor

Thu 07 Dec 2017

EQ Global has partnered with European Travel Ventures, a travel tour operator and unique experience provider, to act as its global payments processor.

Founded in 2008 as the result of a very successful sailing holiday, European Travel Ventures initially launched, The Yacht Week, a series of sailing festivals staged in seven hand-picked destinations around the world. The company’s travel experiences have since evolved from solely yachting adventures into multiple recreational initiatives, including The Ski Week, Yachts and Friends and Fort George – and they now have over 11,000 customers.

The partnership with EQ Global will allow European Travel Ventures to price their products to international customers in their local currency at a guaranteed exchange rate, as well as increasing the speed and efficiency with which European Travel Ventures can process payments for their customers.

The solutions provided by EQ Global will also remove the risks many growing organisations face when receiving international payments in multiple currencies. This will ensure profits are not affected as a result of currency fluctuations.

Enrico Di San Marzano, Managing Director, European Travel Ventures, said: “Our company has gone from strength to strength and we needed an international payments provider that we could trust and who shared our vision for growth. EQ Global is able to offer us an unrivalled global reach for our unique travel experiences, alongside their ability to deliver payments simply, quickly and efficiently. We’re looking forward to working closely with EQ Global as we continue to grow our offering for travelers across the globe.”


Nick Pedersen, Managing Director of EQ Global, said: “Working closely with European Travel Ventures is exactly the type of work we pride ourselves in and we are delighted to be part of such an interesting company story. In providing the company with an all rounded end-to-end international payments solution to ensure that the businesses payments process is smooth, simple, and secure. This will allow European Travel Ventures to focus their efforts on continuing to grow the business and aim to make 2018 the most successful year for the business to date. Our team is able to provide solutions in every aspect of the global payments process.”
