Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
SEATTLE — Holland America Line has launched a new EZpay payment option that allows guests to pay off their cruise at their own pace and with more flexibility.
The cruise line says EZpay spreads out the cruise payment into equal, interest-free monthly installments leading up to final payment. This also gives guests the ability to opt out at any time without penalty.
Guests can choose the date of the monthly charge and a confirmation is sent following each payment. Extra funds can also be added to a payment, with the remaining balance recalculated into equal amounts. There are no additional fees.
“We continually look for ways to enhance our guests’ experience even before they step foot on one of our ships, and EZpay allows the flexibility to pay off their cruise at their own pace,” says Orlando Ashford, President, Holland America Line. “Cruising is the best vacation value there is, and EZpay makes it possible for our guests to book their dream vacation now and conveniently budget it over an extended period of time.”
EZpay may be requested at any time leading up to final payment and agents can sign up their clients for the program.
