The “advance booking period”?
SAVE NOW FLY LATER is perfect for saving and planning your travel for at least three months in advance from when you buy your initial plan and your desired travel date.
For example, if you plan to travel on the (1st of September), you must have had a FLY LATER plan before the preceding three months, which is (June 1st) or prior to that.
The advance period lets you build some travel savings and plan toward your travel goals.
Is this like a savings account?
SAVE NOW PAY LATER is not a savings account and is not a regulated financial product by the FCA or other financial regulators.
It is our product solution designed to help travellers plan, save, and manage travel goals effectively.
We’ve also designed the plan to assist users to rely less on taking on unnecessary debt in meeting travel needs but instead use their own savings that comes with no interest.
What if I default on my monthly payment?
There is no such thing as default payment with this plan because it is not a contract except you are taking on extra trip credit and if that is the case, there will be an affordability check to ensure you can pay back any credit.
The plan is flexible and subscription actions are not reported to any reference agencies.
If you wish to cancel or pause your plan at any time, simply turn off the auto-renew button before the end of your current monthly renewal date.
How can I freeze a booking?
Price freezing works as advance booking when you have not saved enough to cover your desired trip.
If you have seen a flight, hotel, or holiday that you’d like to book but want to freeze your seat or space in lieu of your travel date to avoid paying extra if the price goes up, you can freeze the booking for up to 6 months in advance if the seller does not provide flexible payment options.
To use price freeze, you have to be approved for our 0% interest trip credit and must wait until after the advance booking period.
Can I put more money into my savings without taking on credit?
After saving some money and you are ready to book a trip but don’t wish to do so by taking on extra credit, you are welcome to do so.
You can always pay any balance left to complete any booking with a one-time payment.
