Buy Flights with Curve

Curve is a simple to use app which consolidates multiple debit and credit cards into one. It is effectively a Mastercard debit card that passes on transactions to one of the debit or credit cards linked to the user’s Curve account. As well as making it easier to manage payments, Curve offers reward schemes so that customers can benefit when making everyday purchases.

What is Curve Flex?

With Curve Flex, you can split any payment you’ve made in the past year into instalments. Users simply need to select a payment that they’ve made in the last 12 months and choose to split it into 3, 6, 9 or 12 monthly instalments. Curve will then refund you the original amount. See Curve for full T&C’s.

Why use Curve to book flights?

Curve is a new way to easily make and manage your payment cards, all in one place. There are lots of benefits to using Curve when booking flights, including:

  1. Curve lets users maximise points and cash back, as well as benefiting from Curve Cashback on top. Booking flights isn’t always cheap, but it’s made easier when you know that you’ll be benefiting from rewards. Cashback and rewards subject to your Curve plan.
  2. No foreign exchange fees. Curve has zero foreign exchange fees, and neither does any payment card that you add to your Curve account. This is a dream come true for travellers — easily make payments no matter where you are or where you’re going, while you’re on the go!
  3. Accidentally paid using the wrong card? No problem. Curve’s ‘Go Back in Time’ feature lets you move payments between cards.
  4. Carry lots of cards around with you (or leave them all at home and just use your Curve card!) and pay with any of them — while only needing to remember one PIN number.

Why use Curve Flex to pay for your flights later?

After completing your flight booking, you simply need to select this payment in your Curve account and choose to split it into 3, 6, 9 or 12 monthly instalments. Curve will refund the original amount that you’ve paid. This way, you can book your flights as soon as you see the prices that you like, complete your purchase, then spread the cost over time.

With Curve Flex, you’ll pay lower interest rates than a typical credit card. Your payment schedule is clear and easy to manage; know what you need to pay and when, without any hidden costs.
