Polani Travel elevates online payments with BR-DGE Partnership

BR-DGE, a leading payment orchestration provider, and Polani Travel, a distinguished e-commerce travel company, have entered into a strategic partnership.

BR-DGE, renowned for its market-leading payment platform, facilitates seamless online payment experiences. Polani Travel, operating since 1965, offers comprehensive travel services through its portal, flightcatchers.com, delivering flights and holiday packages primarily to UK consumers.

The essence of this collaboration is to integrate BR-DGE’s advanced payment orchestration technology into Polani Travel’s operations. This synergy aims to enhance the online checkout process, enabling Polani to offer a wider array of payment methods and a smoother customer experience. This modernisation is especially timely as the company transitions to a multi-acquirer strategy, allowing it to manage traffic more effectively and leverage data insights for a smarter payment stack.

BR-DGE has built a formidable reputation with its independent payment orchestration platform. The platform simplifies integrations and accelerates adoption, offering access to over 300 payment and technology providers. This empowers merchants to innovate, consolidate reporting, and build resilience in the payment process.

The partnership is significant in the context of a recent BR-DGE study, which points to an emerging consumer trend: the demand for flexible payment solutions like BNPL in the travel sector. Recognising this, Polani Travel is positioning itself at the forefront of payment innovation, anticipating and meeting the changing preferences of travellers.

BR-DGE Senior Travel Specialist Emily Whalley said, “We are excited to work alongside Polani Travel, a leading e-commerce business that has a rich heritage in providing customers the best experience possible which will be further strengthened by the industry-leading capabilities of the BR-DGE platform.”

Polani Travel Marketing Analytics Director Suleman Ishaq added, “Given our remarkable growth in the last few years, it is essential we remain dedicated to continually improving our customers’ booking journey. A key part of this journey is the payment experience. Partnering up with BR-DGE goes a long way towards fulfilling this commitment by providing a smooth and effortless booking experience. We are genuinely thrilled to be working together and can’t wait to get started.”
