Buy Flights with Payl8r

If you want to buy your flights in instalments, to make it more affordable for your trip, Alternative Airlines offers tickets from over 600 airlines. Airlines range from the big global airlines to the niche domestic carriers to international cities and remote areas. We also give our customers a fast, easy and convenient flight booking experience.

By choosing Payl8r as a payment method for your flights, you are entitled to these benefits:

  • Speedy
  • Split
  • Spread


Speedy offers you the option to pay back the full cost within 30 days with zero interest. You'd be able to get your loan approved within a minute, but it's usually instant approval. The period required to pay back the full cost is shorter than the other options but you'll benefit from not having to pay any interest on top of the actual flight cost.


Split is the option for you to divide your full cost into 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, giving you the flexibility to pay back over a period of time making it more affordable to travel. However, because of the flexibility and the time period, interest will apply to your loan. This is the only option that will have interest applied to the cost though.

Payments will be taken automatically each month, so you don't have to worry about repaying back.


The third and last option you can choose from is Spread. It's essentially an option for customers who wants to spread the cost over time with zero interest. The availability for this option will depend on the merchant. However, it gives you the flexibility needed for your flights.
