TRAVEL CASE STUDIES

Navan streamlines global reimbursements

The Challenge

Navan delivers one of the first enterprise technologies utilizing the cloud, mobile, and AI to balance business needs with today's modern standards. Their corporate travel and expense solution allows users to easily book, view, and manage business travel and expenses. For Navan’s reimbursement offering, they needed a global partner who could help them manage and accelerate their global payouts to their customers’ employees around the world.

The Solution

Through Airwallex’s Global Treasury solution, Navan has been able to efficiently manage employee reimbursements at scale for its multinational customers. Through a single API integration, they’ve streamlined local top-ups, managed FX risk, and used local payment rails to quickly and cost-effectively disburse reimbursements around the world.

WeSki boosted its bottom line through efficient payment infrastructure

The Challenge

The online platform is disrupting the ski travel industry with its online platform that allows skiers and snowboarders to discover, plan and book personalized ski holidays. The business faced challenges with efficiently collecting payments in multiple currencies from customers around the world. It was also getting complicated for them to handle payments to their ever-growing network of suppliers across various payment methods and terms. Their reliance on traditional banking solutions to manage international payments was proving to be costly and complex.

The Solution

Partnering with Airwallex has enabled WeSki to optimize multiple elements of their financial infrastructure using a single platform. WeSki now easily accepts funds from Braintree, a PayPal service, using Airwallex Global Accounts which allows them to efficiently manage multiple currencies and enjoy lower transaction costs. Airwallex also enables them to make fast, cost-effective international transfers at market-leading rates. Using virtual company cards, WeSki can now pay suppliers in minutes, directly from their held balances, while eliminating unnecessary FX conversion fees and surprise foreign transaction fees. By partnering with Airwallex, WeSki has been able to improve scalability, reduce operational costs and consequently boost their margins.

How Camplify collects customer payments online

The Challenge

Camplify is Australia's largest and fastest-growing campervan, motorhome, and caravan sharing company. The business has been rapidly growing, helping thousands of van owners around the world share their vans with others. Camplify was looking for a new card acquirer to support their business in Australia and Europe.

The Solution

With Airwallex's Payments for Platforms solution, Camplify was able to develop an integrated payments offering that included Card Acquiring and Payouts. Additional benefits included pricing transparency, an integrated multi-currency card solution, and rapid integration. Camplify is continuing to expand their business globally, automate their payment solutions, and save on payment related costs.

Travel Expert improves profitability with a one-stop payment solution

The Challenge

The travel conglomerate realised that having to visit branches in person to book holiday packages was dissuading their younger customers. The business also faced friction while settling payments with global suppliers and vendors. Multiple departments were sharing a single corporate card which made it difficult to reconcile payments and compromised financial integrity. Lastly, the business was seeking a way to settle international transactions while avoiding hefty transaction fees and expensive FX rates imposed by traditional banks.

The Solution

By integrating an online payment processing capability, Travel Expert now offers a fast and secure checkout experience in more than 25 countries. With Airwallex’s Borderless Cards, Travel Expert’s finance team can easily create multi-currency virtual company cards for different departments. Being able to track all card activities and set transaction limits and controls from a single dashboard has helped the company reduce time spent on reconciling supplier payments and improve productivity. Airwallex also gives them access to market-leading FX rates and does not charge any international transaction fees resulting in significant savings for the company.

Helping Plum build a borderless stock investing feature

The Challenge

Plum wanted to minimise FX fees for customers when trading international stocks. They needed a solution which would allow for inexpensive multi-currency exchange and direct integration with US clearing brokers. They also needed a partner that could work quickly and facilitate a fast go-to-market for their new stock investing feature.

The Solution

Plum built Airwallex’s multi-currency payment acceptance and low FX rate into their platform. That means when Plum clients trade stocks from international companies, they can be sure they’re always getting the best exchange rate. With the Airwallex solution in place, Plum can collect, hold and convert funds in multiple currencies with access to the interbank FX rate. Additionally, 24/7 FX settlement allows for FX rates outside of market hours, Quotes adds more stability to lock in rates, and Post Fund FX reduces the settlement risk for brokers. The Airwallex integration will help Plum minimise the cost of international investment and deliver on their promise to make their customer’s money go further.
