Canadian Travel Firms Last Year Beat Back Visa Rules Mandating Card Security Codes, Skirting Issues Southwest Bookers Could Face

[UPDATE, June 14, 2019: Starting June 17, users of Southwest Airlines' Swabiz corporate booking portal must insert their credit card's three- or four-digit security code. According to the airline, that includes those using a "Swabiz ghost card" (when card info wasn't stored before June 17), those using a stored personal card (for the first purchase on or after June 17) and those manually entering card details (for every purchase from June 17). Southwest bookings via global distribution systems and the carrier's direct connect API, as well as those using UATP cards, are exempt.]
