Liberty Travel & Affirm team to facilitate travel booking payments
By Gloria Mathias
Liberty Travel, a travel agency, has announced a partnership with Affirm, the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth.
Travellers can book their dream vacation with Affirm, enjoying and paying overtime. When booking trips with an expert travel consultant, approved Liberty Travel customers can choose to pay over time with Affirm and split the total cost of any purchase over $250 into monthly payments. They are shown the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront. Affirm never charges customers any late or hidden fees.
“Liberty Travel is thrilled to partner with one of the leading buy now, pay later providers, Affirm, offering our customers more flexibility and transparency when planning and paying for their well-earned vacations,” said Christina Pedroni, Liberty Travel’s Executive Vice President. “Affirm has many great partners in the travel industry, particularly in the online space; however, here at Liberty Travel, we are excited to be able to provide our customers with the convenience and flexibility of using Affirm’s buy now, pay later payment solution while still having the benefit of a trusted travel professional who can personalise a trip just for them.”
“Recent Affirm research revealed more than half of people are looking for a buy now, pay later option at checkout, and partnering with Liberty Travel helps us meet consumer demand for more flexible payment options when booking travel,” said Pat Suh, Affirm’s SVP of Revenue. “With more than 90% of people saying they will travel next year, it’s critical that they can increase their purchasing power responsibly, without hidden fees.”
Liberty Travel joins over 266,000 Affirm retail partners, including SeatGeek, American Airlines, Priceline, Great Wolf Lodge, Royal Caribbean, and more. Offering Affirm at checkout can drive overall sales, increase average order value, and increase customer repurchase rates.
