Online Travel Fraud Prevention


High-Value Tickets, Low-Margin Sector

Global, Fast Moving Fraud

The Challenge

The travel industry has led the way into the digital world, with 98% of tickets purchased online. However high ticket prices, fewer data points and faster checkouts make identity and order authentication challenging. Fraud rates in the online travel industry (OTA) can jump into the 1-3% of sales range, and a sudden onset can shock both the finances and operations of even a diligent travel company.

The Solution

To reduce the risk, some common approaches include 1) replacing static rules with dynamic business rules and ‘intelligence augmentation’, 2) include live internal threat monitoring of call centers, financial flows and employee/agent performance, and 3) implement comprehensive anomaly detection and ‘early warning’ alerting systems.
