Webjet.com Offers 'Book Now, Pay Later' Option for International Travel
Monthly flight payments create travel opportunities for more customers
Tampa, FL, September 12, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Webjet North America, an online travel agency (OTA) now offers flexible payment options for international airfare allowing customers to pay for their flight needs over a 12 month period. Partnered with UpLift, Inc., an innovative payment marketing platform, Webjet.com seamlessly integrates the payment plan into its own streamlined payment process.
“We are very excited to be working with Webjet.com to offer financing to its customers. The Pay Monthly option will give Webjet.com the opportunity to turn dreamers into travelers by helping them afford their ideal trip,” says UpLift CEO and Co-Founder, Brian Barth.
"With so many Americans unable to travel abroad, we want to make it easier for them to take their perfect trip — whether it be a honeymoon, family vacation, study abroad or an anniversary. Travel enriches lives, strengthens relationships and opens the minds of those who experience other cultures. It should not be an experience only for the wealthy."
Mathias Friess, CEO of Webjet North America
'Book Now, Pay Later' allows travelers to split their cost into several payments, and charges a low 9%-15% APR (based on credit rating). This APR is much lower than the average 19%-25% APR found on PayPal Credit and traditional credit cards.
Nearly one-third of Americans (29%) have never left the country, and more than half (56%) cited financial reasons. Webjet.com launched this monthly payment plan in effort to increase international travel among people living in the US.
