Fintech company moves to ease traveler anxiety
MENLO PARK, CA — March 14, 2019 — Uplift will support its partners’ customer service policies for travelers affected by canceled 737 Max flights, the company announced today. Any traveler unable to rebook and in receipt of a refund from the airline or travel supplier will also receive a refund from Uplift for all interest and fees associated with their Uplift installment loan.
Uplift, a fintech company that enables travel brands to provide a better way to shop, book, pay and experience travel, made the announcement in order to help ease passenger anxiety amid a wave of cancellations after a number of countries, including the U.S., grounded the Boeing plane following two crashes in the past six months.
Passengers who booked a trip with one of Uplift’s partners and found it canceled because of the 737 Max grounding should contact their airline for a refund, and then contact Uplift via phone, email or chat and Uplift will waive the accrued interest charges.
