SAN FRANCISCO, California—Uplift announced a partnership with Unique Travel Corp. (UTC), the worldwide representative of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, to provide their all-inclusive guests with the ability to spread out the cost of their booking over time. This new payment option allows guests to reserve an all-inclusive vacation and then pay for their trip in installments. Guests may access Uplift payment options via the Sandals and Beaches websites or their call center if they prefer to book by phone.
“When it comes to planning a dream vacation, financial flexibility and convenience are key,” said Jeff Clarke, CEO of Unique Vacations, Inc., an affiliate of UTC. “Giving guests of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts the option to pay for their vacation over time is a game changer, especially for those with longer-term planning needs like a destination wedding and honeymoon. The Uplift Buy Now Pay Later program offers endless opportunities for those wishing to upgrade their vacation perks and splurge on amenities like lavish suites, spa treatments, and special experiences.”
Uplift partners with over 300 companies like airlines, cruise lines, resorts, and other major travel providers to help more consumers make purchases and experience travel.
“We are excited to welcome Unique Travel Corp. to the Uplift hospitality family,” said Tom Botts, chief commercial officer, Uplift. “This partnership will provide Sandals and Beaches guests the flexibility to book their all-inclusive dream vacation in monthly installments allowing them to explore all the experiences these resorts have to offer.”
Guests vacationing at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts will be able to use the Uplift pay-over time with monthly installments rather than paying in full at the time of their booking. Customers will see the total cost of their trip upfront along with the monthly payment amount and can choose from three months to 24 monthly installments. There are no fees, including late fees or prepayment penalties, and travel can happen before customers complete their payments.
