Today, MasterCard announced that more travellers around the world will be able to check out quickly and securely now that several new transit and travel retailers are offering MasterPass.

Accepted in 24 countries, MasterPass enables consumers to pay for the things they want with the security they demand, anywhere online or in-app, using any device. And with the continued growth of online travel booking, MasterPass is leading the way by delivering a fast, simple and secure payment option.

In North America, Canada’s national passenger rail network VIA Rail is now live with MasterPass at checkout, and leading Canadian airline WestJet is currently live on both mobile and tablet platforms. Carnival Cruise Line, “The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line®” with 24 ships operating 3 to 16-day voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Europe, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Bermuda, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, will add the “Buy with MasterPass” button to their online site in the first quarter of 2016.

In Europe, Alitalia Airlines, the national airline of Italy, and the country’s primary train operator, Trenitalia, offer MasterPass as a checkout option to its customers, as does Czech Railways.

Travelers in the Asia Pacific market can use MasterPass for travel purchases made with Singapore Airlines and Taiwan High Speed Rail, as well as leading online travel agent Zuji and Hong Kong Airport Express Line.

Across the globe in South Africa, South African Airways, the country’s largest airline, and its low-cost carrier Mango Airlines are both live with MasterPass. In an exciting move, the Legacy Hotels and Resorts Group has recently come on-board to offer MasterPass users great opportunities to enjoy their exceptional range of leisure properties.
