Episode Description

COVID will long be remembered as the reason digital transformation finally arrived in the travel sector as it reckoned with a mountain of havoc-wreaking headaches. In this episode, we inspect the forces changing red trend lines green, why paper is out and virtual cards are very much in, and the ways in which sipping a margarita on a tropical beach just got a whole lot easier.

We dig into how FinTech solutions like agency banking, mobile money, and even gaming, plus high mobile phone penetration in affected regions around Asia and Latin America are playing a critical role in improving financial inclusion in these regions – and what the developing world can learn from it.
