Rather than travel clients paying high rates of interest via their credit cards or other travel financing programs, The Travel Agent Next Door has partnered with Flexiti, a global leader in consumer financing programs. Together, we’ve created Z.I.P., our Zero Interest* Program giving consumers a better way to finance their travel.
Agents in The Travel Agent Next Door Network can offer their clients the ability to finance their travel over a choice of agreed upon time and payments with Zero Percent Interest*. Clients simply pay a one-time finance service charge, which is much less than what credit cards and other travel financing companies offer.
As per the examples below, a family of 4 booking an All-inclusive trip, it clearly demonstrates the total eventual cost to the client via different financing methods.
(Example of trip with the Z.I.P. fee versus, credit card @ 26% interest versus ‘Other Financing Companies’ @ 15% interest.)
Clients can defer to a one-time payment later, pay monthly over 3, 6, or 12 month term payments, etc.
For greater clarity, below is a schedule of the one time financing fees:
*O.A.C. Subject to terms of your Flexiti cardholder agreement. Offer valid for residents of Canada (excluding Quebec). For no payments deferred plans, no payments are required during the promo period, except for payment protection insurance premiums and taxes, if applicable, which are billed monthly. Interest at the cardholder agreement annual interest rate (Account AIR) accrues during the promo period and will be charged if the balance is not paid in full by the promo expiry date. For equal monthly payment plans, no interest will accrue during the promo period and monthly payments include premiums for payment protection insurance and fees, if applicable. If any payment is missed, the promo offer may be cancelled and upon cancellation, interest will be calculated at the Account AIR. Initial Account AIR is disclosed upon approval, varies based on cardholder’s creditworthiness at time of application and does not exceed RBC prime + 33.29%. Any balance at the end of the promo period bears interest at the AIR. Admin fees apply and will be financed with purchase; fee amounts are based on purchase amount and promotional term length, ask a sales representative for details. Promos and terms may be changed without notice. Conditional upon ID verification and on approved credit and valid email address required. Applications may be subject to a secondary, manual review. Financing provided by Flexiti Financial. Flexiti and the Flexiti design are trademarks of Flexiti Financial Inc.
