Amadeus e-Travel Management integrates Conferma payment technology

Conferma’s payment technology is available in Amadeus’ online self-booking tool, Amadeus e-Travel Management. Following the successful integration of the Conferma solution into Amadeus Billback, TMCs and its corporate clients can now use VCNs as a payment method for Amadeus GDS hotel bookings created in Amadeus e-Travel Management.

The seamless integration means there is no change to existing booking processes, while the payment process is streamlined by the system automatically faxing a VCN to the hotel on completion of the booking. At check-out, the booking is charged back to the VCN by the hotel, triggering an automated process that matches and reconciles 100 percent of payment data to booking data, enhancing process efficiencies for TMCs by eliminating expensive manual reconciliation processes.  

For every transaction, all the data captured by Conferma’s VCNs, including additional company-specific data, such as cost centres or project codes, is available to TMCs and travel managers through SNAP, Conferma’s management information and reporting tool. With access to a suite of reports, SNAP provides corporate clients with complete visibility and control over their hotel spend.  

Virtual Event

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


The secure controls applicable to VCNs significantly reduce the risk of misuse and fraud by restricting the category of merchant able to bill the VCN to hotels. Other controls such as credit limits and charge validity dates allow TMCs to enforce compliance with corporate policies. The solution also reduces the risk profile for TMCs and corporate clients by removing the requirement for them to handle and protect sensitive physical payment card data.
