In a joint release, Carnival Cruise Line Chief Commercial Officer Ken Tate said that the partnership with Uplift will now make it more affordable for guests to book with his company by spreading the cost of their trip small monthly payments.
“Uplift’s unique zero money down option with up to 24 set monthly payments and its pure focus on travel made Uplift a natural choice for Carnival to partner with,” he added.
Available through any travel advisor, on carnival.com or via Carnival’s call centres, Uplift Pay Monthly is only available to US residents at this time. However, Canadian residents will soon be able to use Uplift Pay Monthly, as well.
Uplift Pay Monthly seamlessly integrates into Carnival’s existing booking and payment processes, allowing guests to make decisions instantly. There are no prepayment penalties and guests clearly see the total cost of their trip at the time of booking, enabling them to easily budget for their dream cruise vacation.
“Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone,” said Uplift President Rob Soderbery. “Travel has become a fundamental part of our lives, and today’s consumers rightly demand more flexibility. We are thrilled to partner with Carnival Cruise Line and help more people enjoy a dream vacation.”
