MONTREAL — Air Canada Vacations and Uplift have teamed up to provide flexible payment options to customers booking their next vacation getaway.
Through the new partnership, travellers can now take advantage of Uplift’s Buy Now, Pay Later flexible payment options on aircanadavacations.com. They will be given the option to pay Air Canada Vacations in full or pay monthly through Uplift at time of booking. When selecting monthly payments, customers can quickly apply online to receive an estimate of monthly payments and advance purchase amounts. They can use Uplift to secure best available pricing, book a last-minute trip, add benefits such as preferred seats or upgrade flights to Premium Economy and Business Class, while easily managing the costs with fixed, affordable monthly payments.
Said Air Canada Vacations’ Vice President, Nino Montagnese: “Today’s consumers want more flexibility and we are excited to offer Uplift and help more people’s dreams to travel. The added flexibility for customers to pay over time through the Uplift partnership allows our customers to take the holidays they’ve been waiting for.”
Denise Heffron, Managing Director, Uplift Canada, added: “We truly are excited about this partnership and it is an honour to work with one of Canada’s most trusted travel brands. Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone and this partnership accelerates our ability to provide Canadians with the vacations they deserve.”
Uplift partners with over 200 airlines, cruise lines, resorts and other major travel brands to offer BNPL payment options, providing customers the freedom to book their trip when they’re ready and spread the cost over affordable monthly payments. Customers can easily compare the costs of paying monthly with those of paying upfront, choosing the option that works best for there. There are no late or early payment penalties and travellers clearly see the monthly payment amount and total cost of the trip at the time of booking.
