Have you ever wanted to plan that perfect vacation but couldn't afford to pay it all at once? Below find a few options the several major travel suppliers are using to provide their clients with more flexibility when it's time to pay.
ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISE LINE & CELEBRITY CRUISES
Royal Caribbean & Celebrity Cruises have their own flexible payment program where you can pay your cruise in installments. Their program is called FlexPay and it allows you to pay your balance due with up to 10 payments and you can fully customize the payment dates and amounts to be paid. This program is free and charges no fees for using it. It also allows you to modify or cancel your FlexPay payment schedule.
CARNIVAL CRUISE LINE | MSC CRUISES | NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE
All of these cruise lines offer you the option of booking now and paying later with Uplift. This program allows you to pay your vacation monthly for up to 18 months. Depending on your credit, you could pay it interest free or have payments with 0% APR for select trips.
JetBlue Airways offers you the option of paying in installments through their partnership with Marcus from Goldman Sachs. Through this program you don't need to pay a deposit, there are no fees, predictable monthly payments and it offers a fixed interest rate. Your interest rate will depend on your credit score and history.
Delta Airlines is partnered with Affirm who allows you to spread the cost of your trip over 6, 12, 18 or 24 monthly installments, with interest. There are no late or hidden fees. Since this is a loan, your approval odds depend on your credit score and history.
Delta also offers the option of using Plan It with Amex, where you can use an eligible American Express card to pay for your trip over a 3, 6 or 12 months period.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES, SPIRIT AIRLINES & UNITED AIRLINES
These airlines are also partnered with Uplift. This program allows you to pay your vacation monthly for up to 18 months. Depending on your credit, you could pay it interest free or have payments with 0% APR for select trips.
