Category: Uplift – Integrated Agent Connect platform

–    Uplift’s Integrated Agent Connect technology enables travel providers and advisors to offer customers a BNPL financing option for their travel. Uplift’s Integrated Agent Connect API enables travel distributors to display the pay monthly option as part of the regular booking flow. This allows advisors to offer monthly installments to their clients while using their preferred booking tool. The integration provides easy access and a seamless user experience for travel advisors. It’s simple to use and customers love the flexibility and budget-friendly payment method.

Category: Uplift, Buy Now Pay Later for Travel Advisors ‘Stand Alone’ platform

–    Uplift is the only BNPL monthly payment installment solution for Travel Advisors that is offered through a simple portal. This portal makes Uplift financing widely available in the market. This tool is a value to travel advisors as there are fast and instant decisions as the application process takes only a few minutes and the booking is paid in full immediately. There are additional customer benefits as well, including: low, fixed monthly payments, flexibility and upfront trip installments which makes budgeting easy.

“Uplift has been focused on building enhanced technology for a seamless omni-channel customer experience. At Uplift we understand that supporting our travel advisor partners is critical. We also know that agents are key to recovery — their knowledge and expertise are more valuable than ever,” said Uplift Managing Director, Denise Heffron. “We are thrilled to receive this honor from Travel Weekly and we are committed to supporting travel agents in all ways possible and helping them grow their business now, and in the years to come.”

With Uplift’s simple and affordable BNPL installments, consumers can book their dream vacation when they are ready and spread the cost of their purchase over affordable monthly payments, rather than paying in full at time of booking. There are no late fees or prepayment penalties, and travel can happen prior to the loan being paid off.

Uplift partners with over 200 of the world’s leading airlines, cruise lines, resorts, travel advisors and other major travel brands in the United States and Canada, to offer BNPL payment options to help more consumers make meaningful purchases and experience the travel that they deserve.
