Motel 6 to offer additional payment options

G6 Hospitality, parent company of Motel 6 and Studio 6, is upgrading its Ingenico Group terminals to prepare for the EMV liability shift and ensure PCI compliance at its corporate-owned properties in the U.S. and Canada.

G6 Hospitality selected Ingenico Group’s customer-facing iSC Touch 480 touchscreen readers, designed for high-traffic and high-volume lodging and retail environments. The devices are fully equipped to handle all forms of electronic payment - EMV chip card, magnetic stripe, signature capture, and NFC/contactless - and fully support new payment options such as mobile wallets and QR codes. Ingenico Group’s iSC Touch 480 was the first POS device in the world to meet the rigorous PCI PTS V4 hardware and software security requirements.

The first phase of this process involves the installation of new terminals, which will provide the foundation for the ongoing payment strategy roll out. The Ingenico Group terminals will eventually enable G6 corporate-owned properties to accept EMV and NFC payments. Future enhancements will also allow guests to check-in kiosk style, making the process easier and faster for travelers.
