Up to the last 39 months of settled and voided transaction data

The ARC Transaction History File offers ARC-participating travel agencies and Corporate Travel Departments (CTDs) the opportunity to archive any of the past 39 months' settled and voided transaction information - down to coupon level detail.

Agencies and CTDs may receive data segmented by week, month, quarter, or year based on PED. Additionally, you may select a subscription option that will provide access to the most recently settled data (weekly, monthly, quarterly) on an on-going basis.

As a leader in data privacy issues, ARC removes all transaction information from its systems after 39 months. This Transaction History File gives you the opportunity to order detailed transaction information before it is deleted.
