Lay-by Your Holiday with TravelPay

Lay-by your holiday with TravelPay and you can:

  • Avoid price increases from exchange rate and fare changes
  • Lock in the best price and earlybird offers
  • Make your travel costs easier to manage

Why TravelPay?

With TravelPay, you can lock in the exchange rate, the best price, ‘earlybird’ and other deals NOW without the big upfront cost. You pay for your travel over 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 10 interest-free monthly instalments on your credit/debit card. You don’t have to apply for a loan or a separate card.

This is the affordable and convenient way to pay for your travel. It helps you manage your budget and cash flow. You can use TravelPay for any travel booking, as long as your last instalment is at least 14 days before your departure date.

How does TravelPay lock in the exchange rate and best price?

TravelPay forwards the full amount of your travel costs to Essence Tours upfront, so they can lock in your booking at current prices and exchange rates.

What does TravelPay cost?

Other than an establishment fee of $100.00 for 2-6 months and $200 for 10 months, you pay no more than you would if you paid the whole cost of your holiday up front.  For example, if your holiday costs $3,000, you can elect to pay at $1,000 per month over 3 months, or $600 per month over 5 months - the choice is yours. Standard card processing fees of 2.5% incl GST apply.

Which of my cards can I use with TravelPay?

Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards.
