News / KAYAK and Affirm partner to help tourists book now and pay over time
Now, eligible travelers can book their next trip and pay over time with no hidden or late fees
Affirm, the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, announced a partnership with KAYAK, the world's leading travel search engine, making Affirm the company’s exclusive pay-over-time provider in the U.S. Now travelers have greater spending power and payment flexibility when booking trips on KAYAK.
According to KAYAK search data, flight prices are up 40% year over year. But high prices do not appear to be discouraging travelers from getting a trip on the books in 2023 – overall search demand is up 46% year over year. KAYAK is teaming up with Affirm to make it easier to plan and pay for trips over time this year, empowering even more people to travel.
By selecting Affirm at checkout on KAYAK.com, approved KAYAK travelers can split the total cost of flights, accommodations, and rental and car sharing over $150 into monthly payments. From there, travelers will see the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront, as there are no late or hidden fees when paying over time with Affirm.
KAYAK joins Affirm’s network of nearly 15 million consumers and 245,000 merchants, including American Airlines, Vrbo, Vacasa, Priceline, and more. By offering Affirm at checkout, merchants can reach new customers, drive overall sales, increase average order value and customer repurchase rates.
