The client, an established UK holiday business falling under the “travel” category, found themselves in a critical situation when their previous service provider (Stripe) issued a notice. Classed as a “travel” entity, their unique needs demanded a provider well-versed in the intricacies of the holiday and travel industry. Seeking comprehensive advice and a reliable alternative, the client reached out to several providers. Notably, they chose to contact Merchant Advice Service (MAS) through Facebook, showcasing the diverse and accessible channels through which clients engage with MAS.
As a company operating in the travel sector, the client faced distinct challenges related to their classification. With the impending need for a new service provider, they were on the lookout for not just any solution, but one that could align with the specific requirements of their UK holiday business and work with their booking and client management software.
