Can I lower the amount I pay each month once the plan has started?

Klarna will automatically ask you to pay an interest saver amount, which if paid each month, will lower the interest charged on your flight purchase.

However, you can choose to pay the minimum amount on your loan at any point during the payment plan. By choosing to pay the minimum amount on your loan, the interest charged will rise significantly. So, it's best to avoid paying the minimum amount and stick to the interest saver amount if possible.
