ARC Electronic Miscellaneous Document (EMD) Information & Program Update at TRAMS

Travel agents visiting the ARC Booth at the TRAMS TMU Conference, being held this April in Las Vegas, will learn a great deal more about the Electronic Miscellaneous Document (EMD). Due for introduction and industry-wide availability through ARC this fall, the EMD will replace the traditional MCO and other remaining paper transactions. An EMD will accommodate multiple ancillary charges within a single transaction and even link to multiple legs of an airline ticket providing significant process efficiency and flexibility, along with much greater account data tracking. Please stop by and learn more about the EMD from ARC, this April at the TRAMS TMU Conference.


Please distribute the ARC TAC among staff and colleagues.
