How to book a plane ticket with a credit card on Facebook
Travel companies are taking steps to cut costs as the industry tries to compete with the soaring costs of airfare and other goods and services.

They also are moving to increase their reliance on electronic payment to cut out the middleman.
Traveling through Europe has become a much bigger and more competitive business than it was a few years ago, says David Farrar, chief executive officer of Travelocity, a travel company.
“It’s going to be much more profitable,” Farrarsaid at an event in London on Tuesday.
“In the last few years we’ve seen an unprecedented amount of growth.
The volume of our customers has increased dramatically.”
That growth is driven by technology, which is making it more efficient to buy and book flights.
“People are using technology to book, they’re using technology that’s being developed to pay, and they’re buying technology that is being developed that is cutting out the card,” said Farras chief executive.
The trend is reflected in the growth of travel services companies such as Priceline, AirBnB, Travelocity and Orbitz.
They have all added features that make it easier to book travel on a variety of platforms.
“You can now book on Amazon, you can book with a smartphone, you’re using apps, you have apps that allow you to book online.
There’s so many different options out there now,” said David O’Sullivan, a senior vice president at Priceline.
He added that there are about 3.4 million people using the company’s platform to book flights this year, up from 3.2 million in 2016.
“So the growth is going to continue,” said O’Shanahan.
“We’re in a situation where it’s very difficult to compete in that space.”
That competition is particularly fierce in Europe, where airlines have faced a wave of fraud.
In the United States, the travel industry is still struggling to recover from the financial crisis and the recession, which have hammered ticket sales and led to millions of Americans without enough money to cover their flights.
Some travel companies, such as JetBlue and American, are struggling to find ways to cut their costs.
Some of the companies are moving away from cards, but others are also looking at technology and reducing costs.
The American Airlines Group, for example, has rolled out its own payment system, Visa, which offers the ability to pay in cash, checks or credit cards.
And it’s now also offering an option for travelers to pay with a cell phone, with one card and a few other options.
But that approach may not be enough to cut fraud costs, according to travel experts.
“A lot of the fraud we see is happening online,” said John R. Campbell, a research professor at the University of Maryland.
“The card swipe is still the easiest way to pay.”
Travelers who use mobile phones to pay are the biggest culprits of fraud, Campbell said.
“For most people, it’s not going to work,” he said.
Travel companies have begun to offer online payment options, such for hotel stays, for which people can use their own credit cards or PayPal accounts.
But they’re also looking to cut the middlemen, Campbell added.
“One of the things we have learned is that the technology is coming along at a rapid rate, and there’s a lot of cost cutting that’s going on,” Campbell said, noting that the companies he studied in Europe have reduced their cost by 40 per cent since 2014.
