FAQs

How does Zilch work?

Zilch lets customers split the total cost of their basket over 6 weeks, by selecting Zilch at checkout. Customers use their virtual zilch card online with partnered retailers.

You’ll pay the first 25% of the overall cost at the time of booking. Afterwards, payments will be withdrawn in equal payments of 25% every two weeks.

The 1st payment: 25% upon the day of purchase

The 2nd payment: 25% 2 weeks after the day of purchase

The 3rd payment: 25% 4 weeks after the day of purchase

The 4th payment: 25% 6 weeks after the day of purchase

Can I make payments early?

Yes, you can repay any future payment early via the 'Pay Now' button on the Zilch app, which can be found next to your purchase listing in the 'My Purchase' section of the Zilch homepage.

Will using Zilch impact my credit score?

Due to Zilch’s commitment to responsible spending, a soft check of your credit score is done. Investigating your options won’t impact your credit score, but may show as a recent search on your credit record if you're signed up with a credit agency.

What is Zilch Boost?

Zilch Boost is an upgrade, and only available to select customers by invitation from Zilch. If the cost of your flights is a bit above your available spend limit, Zilch Boost will help. Simply tick the ‘Zilch Boost’ option for Alternative Airlines on your Zilch app, and you'll be able to purchase up to twice your available spend when you reach checkout. The cost which is above your usual spend will be added to your first payment and billed to your debit card at the time of purchase.
