United Airlines to Offer “Fly Now, Pay Later” Option at Checkout

United Airlines will soon let you fly now and pay later. Passengers booking flights from the US to United’s many global destinations will now be offered the option to pay for their tickets monthly through the Uplift credit system.

The partnership between United Airlines and Uplift was announced this week. It will let passengers travel right away on flights with payments spread over time. Uplift will let passengers pay off flight bookings over the following 11 months, through monthly installments.

Uplift will integrate seamlessly into the United Airlines payment processing system. When booking on United.com you will see the new option as one of the payment methods.

However, this will be subject to credit checks. Uplift promise that this will be fast, convenient and easy to do. Their system uses advanced artificial intelligence which the company says provides consumers with “the highest approval rates in travel”.

Uplift has already been offering this payment option for United through their United Vacations arm. Since 2017, pay monthly via Uplift has been an option for vacationers booking holiday packages through the service.

Paying for a flight this way, will definitely end up being more expensive. The point of travel hacking especially is to spend as little as possible and extract maximum value out of miles and points. So this monthly payment option will not be a huge hit with this crowd. But, there’s definitely a market for these offers.
