Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, today announced it has been selected as the payment partner for Kensington Tours. Kensington Tours will leverage Ingenico’s global end-to-end payment capabilities to power its technology for building highly-customized tour experiences for travelers.
“Payments cannot be a pain point for us, as we need tailored solutions and capabilities to match our customized offerings. Ingenico has excelled at meeting these needs and that makes a world of difference not only for us, but also for our customers who want a seamless tour experience from planning to payment,” said Alison Hickey, President, Kensington Tours.
Kensington Tours has grown at least 25% each of the past three years. Every trip is tailor-made and private-guided, ensuring travelers have everything they need from start to finish.
