What’s the difference between using Uplift or paying over time interest free?
The benefits of using Uplift is that you can book your trip, and travel on it, without having to have paid your full balance before the trip departs. You can keep making payments with low rates on a flexible payment plan after the trip has ended. If you’d prefer to pay over time, interest free, you can pay in as many instalments as you like, but you have to pay the full balance of your trip at least 60 days before it departs.
What does a flexible deposit mean?
FlexDeposit is a policy you automatically get once you’ve paid a deposit on any Contiki trip 7 days or longer. It means that if you need to cancel or change your trip for any reason you won’t lose the deposit paid, as long as it is at least 60 days before your trip departure. Your deposit will remain secure until you’re ready to use it on new trip dates or on a different trip.
FlexDeposit can be used up until your 36th birthday, after which time it can then be transferred for use with any other travel brand within The Travel Corporation family of brands. It can also be gifted to a friend within 5 years of the original booking date.
