2. Spread the cost with a payment plan

Choosing to buy your flights using a payment plan is a great way to make your flights more affordable. Airfare isn’t always cheap, and prices can rise the closer you get to your date of departure. You want to book your flights today, and be reassured that your flights are confirmed, but the thought of paying the full cost upfront is daunting. With Alternative Airlines, it doesn’t need to be.

By using one of our financing options, you spread the cost of your flights. We have lots of options, depending on where you reside. U.S and Canadian residents can spread the cost with Affirm, Klarna, Sezzle and Zip. If you’re in the U.K., spread the cost with Clearpay or Klarna.
