Alternative Airlines offers buy now, pay later in the Philippines for first time with TendoPay
21/09/22 - Alternative Airlines, a global flight search and booking site, now offers flexible payment options to travellers in the Philippines thanks to its new partnership with TendoPay, a ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ (BNPL) payment provider.
This is the first time that Alternative Airlines’ Philippine-based customers can select a BNPL option. As TendoPay’s only flight merchant, it also marks the first time that TendoPay’s customers can use its flexible payment options when booking flights.
At Alternative Airlines, customers can book flights with 600+ global airlines, including British Airways, Cebu Pacific, and AirAsia and spread the cost over instalments. By selecting TendoPay at checkout, customers can benefit from a selection of repayment options. TendoPay customers can choose to split the cost of their flights in 4 equal payments spread over 6 weeks or to pay in monthly instalments (2-12 months) with other flexi options. TendoPay offers a 0% interest with its ‘Pay in 4’ repayment option, so customers won’t have to worry about having to pay for extra fees.
Sam Argyle Managing Director at Alternative Airlines: “We’re thrilled to announce that our new partnership with TendoPay enables our Philippine-based customers to split the cost of their flight in easy-to-pay instalments rather than paying for the full fare at once. We’ve seen a huge rise in buying flights and paying in instalments over the past few years in various regions. Our expansion with the first BNPL in the Philippines means that we can offer greater flexibility on ways to pay for flights to a higher number of customers.”
TendoPay: “TendoPay offers an easy and transparent way for you to shop, without paying any interest fees and extra hidden costs. We’re excited that, for the first time, TendoPay can be used to buy flights in manageable instalments. Alternative Airlines has created an easy and comparable site for travellers to book flights to any destination and pay in monthly instalments with TendoPay. Travelling has definitely been made easy with Alternative Airlines!”
