Clearpay & Flights
We know that flights can be an expensive purchase, so Alternative Airlines lets you select Clearpay at checkout so that you can split the cost of your airfare. Clearpay is a payment provider that splits the total cost of your purchase into 4 instalments, taken automatically every 2 weeks. On the day of purchase, all you need to do is pay the first 25%. This means that you only need to pay 25% of the price you see at checkout today. This way, you can be reassured that your flights are confirmed (allowing you to find and book your holiday accommodation!) but without the pressure of having to pay the full amount today.
Unlike many payment providers, Clearpay is interest free (that’s right, no interest!) and there are absolutely no additional fees if you pay on time.
Clearpay is a convenient way to pay for flights as it breaks up the total cost, making it much more manageable and affordable.
What is Clearpay?
Clearpay is a popular payment provider and is the British sister of the Australian payment service Afterpay. Clearpay lets you split the totals of your online shopping into four easier-to-manage chunks.
How can I use Clearpay to pay for flights?
Alternative Airlines lets you search and book flights on over 600 global airlines. Once you have found the right flights for you, proceed to checkout and select Clearpay as your chosen payment method.
Being able to book your flights today but without paying the total cost up-front means you can lock-in today’s prices and be reassured that you have your flights reserved.
How does Cleapay split the cost of my flights?
The costs of your flights will be split into four equal payments. The first 25% will be made at the time of booking, with the other three payments made fortnightly after that.
