MasterCard International has become the preferred payment method for 800 Travel Systems Inc.

The travel agency serves customers via toll-free telephone numbers and a Web site, www.lowairfare.com. MasterCard customers booking trips will be offered rewards that have yet to be determined. A sweepstakes for MasterCard customers who visit the travel company's Web site is also in the works.

MasterCard has similar agreements with other travel vendors and tourism agencies. "Our alliance with 800 Travel Systems further strengthens our position in the travel and entertainment category by delivering exclusive travel values to our cardholders," said Fred Gore, senior vice president of U.S. acceptance at MasterCard.
