H.I.S. has joined Japan Internet Reservation Standard for Travel Agency or JIRSTA to prevent and detect unfair purchases of travel products including air tickets or accommodation bookings on e-commerce.
Under the current situation that travel companies have suffered from unfair cross-boarder EC particularly including credit card payment, three Japanese OTAs of Rakuten managing Rakuten Travel, Recruit Lifestyle managing Jalan.net and Ikyu.com launched the JIRSTA consortium in November last year.
The consortium expects to take actions for prevention from unfair dealings more effectively and cheaper than individual efforts by sharing unfair dealing record data and countermeasures against cleverer unfairness. JIRSTA is operated by Japan System, an IT security solution provider.
