‘Buy now, pay later: Four easy installments, 0 percent interest’ — U.S. travel becomes more affordable than ever as Alternative Airlines partners with QuadPay
American travelers can now split the cost of their flights into four interest-free payments when they book through Alternative Airlines, thanks to the site's new partnership with QuadPay.
6th October, 2020
Alternative Airlines, a high-growth, global flight search and booking site, has reached new heights on its mission to transform the way that travelers book their flights thanks to an exciting new partnership with QuadPay.
Whether looking to hop between states or jet-off internationally, U.S. travelers can search and book flights on more than 600 global airlines — including American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Emirates, and Norwegian — and split the total cost into four interest-free payments, paid over six weeks.
COVID-19 may have caused a bump for the travel industry this year but it hasn’t stopped Alternative Airlines forming a new exciting alliance with QuadPay, a payment-installment provider at the forefront of a payments revolution in the United States.
This tide of change has been driven by an increasing demand from consumers for convenient and user-friendly alternatives to traditional high-interest-bearing credit cards. QuadPay is at the forefront of this change, providing a market-leading payment option to ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ that has really taken off in America.
“Consumers are increasingly avoiding credit cards in favour of more flexible payment options,” said QuadPay Co-CEO Brad Lindenberg.Credit cards can make consumers uncomfortable, whereas QuadPay offers an alternative which is transparent, convenient, and allows consumers to better manage their finances. Thanks to QuadPay, Alternative Airlines will now be able to offer even more freedom and flexibility, providing the option to pay in four interest-free installments over six weeks.”
U.S. travelers simply need to search for their ideal flights on the Alternative Airlines website and select ‘QuadPay’ as their chosen payment method at checkout. QuadPay will perform a soft credit check, which is quick, easy, and has zero impact on the user’s credit score.
QuadPay’s instant decisioning process means the flight reservation can be confirmed immediately, locking-in today’s prices. The total cost is split into four equal payments, with the first 25 percent taken at the time of purchase and the additional three payments taken over six weeks. What's more, absolutely no interest is charged — travelers will pay the price that they see at checkout, without any hidden fees or additional charges later. Users can even download QuadPay’s easy-to-use app, to help manage their payments while on the road — or in the air.
Speaking of the announcement, Sam Argyle, Managing Director at Alternative Airlines, commented: “We’re incredibly excited to have partnered with QuadPay. At Alternative Airlines, we are working hard to transform the way that travelers are able to pay for their flights, by offering simple and convenient payment methods. QuadPay has developed a solution which empowers debt-conscious consumers to pay the way that they want. Our customers love the flexibility of splitting up the cost of their flights, without any pressure of paying the total cost upfront, while being reassured that their flight reservations are confirmed.”
Alternative Airlines might be a global business, enabling travelers to easily and seamlessly book their flights no matter where in the world they are, but the U.S. market has been a key driver behind Alternative Airlines’ rapid success. In fact, U.S. sales accounted for 54% of Alternative Airlines’ overall business in 2019.
Argyle added: “QuadPay presents an exciting opportunity to continue our expansion in the U.S. Alternative Airlines and QuadPay share a passion for innovation and we look forward to an exciting partnership together”.
Quadpay is the latest Buy Now Pay Later payment plan provider to be added to Alternative Airlines' growing list for U.S. travelers, as well as the recent launch of crypto payments.
