Trip Affiliates Network (TA Network) will grow regional digital partnership in southeast Asia having agreed a partnership with Malaysia’s Sri Sutra Travel.

TA Network's digital payment solutions BorderXP provides virtual card or local fund transfer services to process payments dynamically to minimise costs like cross border and FX fees.
Dato Syed, managing director and founder of SST, said: “SST is a travel conglomerate under the SUTRA TRAVEL MANAGEMENT GROUP, well established with a large corporate and non-corporate clientele and over one million travel-related products and services that encompass all the travel components.
“The collaboration with TA Network will extend SST’s capabilities in providing more effective and optimised accommodation solutions via direct contracting.”
