JetBlue Vacations (NASDAQ:JBLU) and UpLift have announced a partnership that helps make trip planning even more accessible and affordable, the company said.
Travelers now have the option to pay for vacation itineraries — including JetBlue flights, hotels and other amenities — up front or in 12 monthly installments with APRs that starts at 8.99% (a). This is the latest addition to JetBlue Vacations and its evolution to offer more personalized trip experiences, making the dream of a vacation an affordable reality for many travelers.
Customers shop for and purchase vacation packages at jetblue.com/vacations. During the payment process, travelers can easily see and select “pay in full” or “pay monthly.”
With the UpLift Pay Monthly option, travelers are able to lock in affordable pricing through UpLift without paying the total cost up front or incurring higher-interest debt. UpLift instantly approves travelers for a low-cost fixed monthly payment plan.
Once approved, travelers are on their way to their dream vacations. With JetBlue Vacations, travelers also receive additional savings and convenience by bundling JetBlue flights with hotels, car rentals and other amenities into one personalized vacation package.
This new feature is the newest enhancement to JetBlue Vacations (formerly JetBlue Getaways). JetBlue Vacations offers seamless booking, JetBlue´s award-winning customer service and competitive prices combined with tailored experiences, to create a one-stop vacation shop and seamless travel journey.
