Why buy flights with Afterpay?

Buying flights with Afterpay is a fantastic way to make a large purchase and split the payments in four and pay for it over time.

By settling the payment with Alternative Airlines, Afterpay allows you to pay off your flights over time. For example — let's pretend that you want to buy flights that cost $1000 USD. When you choose Afterpay, you pay a downpayment upfront, then Afterpay will lend you the remaining balance and give it straight to Alternative Airlines, which allows us to secure your flight and send you your e-ticket right away.

You will then be required to pay back the cost of your flights in four over 6 weeks.

How does Afterpay work?

Afterpay is simple. By choosing Afterpay, you secure your airline tickets now and lock in today's prices without having to pay the total cost upfront.

The cost of your flights is paid in 4 interest-free payments over 6 weeks.

The 1st payment is taken at the time that you confirm your flights. The following 3 payments are taken once every 2 weeks.

Let's break that down to make it even easier to understand. Imagine you've purchased flights for $800 USD:

  • You secure and purchase your flights at Alternative Airlines and have agreed to pay over time in 4 payments with Afterpay. The 1st payment ($200 USD) is taken at purchase $600 USD remaining
  • 2 weeks after you've secured your flight and made the 1st payment, the 2nd payment is automatically processed ($200 USD) —$400 USD remaining
  • 4 weeks after making the 1st payment, the 3rd payment is automatically processed ($200 USD) — $200 USD remaining
  • 6 weeks after making the 1st payment, the 4th and final payment is automatically processed ($200 USD — nothing remaining. Your flights have been fully paid off

If you choose to make additional payments, you can do so through your Afterpay account.

What happens after I buy flights with Afterpay?

Afterpay will automatically debit you every two weeks for the payment for your flights. They'll send you a reminder via SMS or email to let you know that the payment is coming so that you can make sure you have enough money for the payment. But, other than that, you won't have to do anything and Afterpay will handle the rest.
