“The Stream prepaid hotels has been very well adopted by Vacation.com since its launch in 2012. We’re pleased that we are now able to offer Canadian pricing and receive payment in Canadian dollars, making it infinitely easier for our Canadian members to use,” said Tiffany Glass, Chief Operating Officer for Vacation.com/Travel Leaders Leisure Group.
“With Stream CAD, our Canadian members can book their customers using Canadian credit cards without incurring bank fees for currency conversion or a service fee if the reservation is cancelled. In addition, Stream CAD is now enabled for 15 languages, which will better serve the diverse multi-cultures of Canada. The Stream application displays in the selected language and the customer facing e-mails also display in that same language.”
