“Travelocity is the first travel app to implement innovative credit card scanning technology that uses the iPhone’s camera to read and enter the customer’s credit card information. This saves on-the-go travellers the hassle of tapping in the numbers on a mobile device. Consumers are offered the choice of entering their card information manually or by simply tapping ‘auto-scan credit card with camera’ and holding their credit card up to the phone camera for automated data .entry”, said Joshua Bright Product Manager Mobile at Travelocity.
