Air Canada Vacations and Uplift have announced a partnership bringing flexible payment options to Canadians seeking to book their next vacation getaway. 

Uplift provides the freedom to book a trip when customers are ready and spreads the cost over affordable monthly payments. 

Consumers can easily compare the costs of paying monthly with those of paying upfront, choosing the option that works best for them. 

There are no late or early payment penalties and travellers clearly see the monthly payment amount and total cost of the trip at the time of booking.

"Today's consumers want more flexibility and we are excited to offer Uplift and help more people's dreams travel," said Air Canada Vacations Vice-President Nino Montagnese. "The added flexibility for customers to pay over time through the Uplift partnership allows our customers to take the holidays they've been waiting for."

Denise Heffron, managing director at Uplift Canada, added: "We truly are excited about this partnership, and it is an honour to work with one of Canada's most trusted travel brands. Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone and this partnership accelerates our ability to provide Canadians with the vacations they deserve."

Imagine leaving snowy Canada behind to explore sunny ports of call in just 12 easy payments? 

Customers will be given the option to pay Air Canada Vacations in full or pay monthly through Uplift at time of booking. 

When selecting monthly payments customers can quickly apply online to receive an estimate of monthly payments and advance purchase amounts. 

Travellers can use Uplift to secure best available pricing, book a last-minute trip, add benefits such as preferred seats or upgrade flights to Premium Economy and Business Class, while easily managing the costs with fixed, affordable monthly payments.

Uplift partners with more than 200 of the world's leading airlines, cruise lines, resorts and other major travel brands to offer BNPL payment options to help more consumers make meaningful purchases and experience the travel that they deserve.

Uplift's Buy Now, Pay Later flexible payment options are now available for booking on Air Canada Vacations.
