The companies teamed up to assist Travel Advisors and their clients by introducing a new way to book their travel and spread the cost over time. Now guests will have the freedom to travel even before they finish making their monthly payments over an 11-month period. TTC guests can buy their trip now, save 10% and pay over time through Uplift with annual percentage rates (APRs) from 7%.
“As we have shared stories throughout 2020 about our first 100th Anniversary this year, The Travel Corporation continues to be driven by service and is constantly innovating around new ways to make travel more personalized and accessible with the best technology benefitting our loyal Travel Advisors and their clients,” said Brett Tollman, chief executive of The Travel Corporation.
“Our new partnership with Uplift includes our award-winning brands such as Contiki, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Costsaver, Luxury Gold, Uniworld, and African Travel, Inc. and further assists us in building on this commitment by offering our guests another way to pay for their vacations. We believe this may be applicable during these very difficult, challenging times for some, and therefore fits their personal needs while providing a seamless booking and payment solution as well as experience,” he concluded.
Uplift’s omni-channel payment platform will integrate into TTC’s Travel Advisors’ booking platforms.
“Like TTC, we believe travel is an essential part of the human experience,” said Uplift chief commercial officer, Tom Botts. “As we all look forward to traveling again soon, guests will require more payment options. Uplift is the ideal solution, allowing customers to book the trip they deserve while managing their expenses during these uncertain times,” Botts added.
