The National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (ARVC) announced a new member benefit with First Data, which can save private park operators thousands of dollars in credit card processing fees.

“We think this is going to be a highly sought after member benefit because First Data will work directly with campground operators to develop a program that best suits their credit and debit processing needs while saving them money,” said Paul Bambei, ARVC president and CEO, in a press release.

First Data is providing ARVC members reduced rates on face-to-face retail transactions, Spend Trend analyses and ATM terminals.

First Data is also offering ARVC members a Platinum Service Package for reduced rates that includes enhanced statements; 24/7 access to transaction data; alerts; and a tool to offer coupons and discounts to park customers. ATM terminals are also available at a reduced rate.

Based in Atlanta, First Data is a global leader in electronic payment processing. The company also offers consulting services and other resources to help park operators improve their payment security and risk management.
