Have you heard the big news? Paying for your holiday just got oh-so much easier, thanks to our nifty Direct Debit payment plan. Our new book-now-pay-later option means you don’t have to fork out for your vacay all in one go – happy days. Interested? Here’s everything you need to know about our Direct Debit scheme.
How does Direct Debit work?
It’s super easy. Once you’ve picked out your holiday, just book online and pay your deposit as normal. Then, you can set up your Direct Debit details, and your monthly payments will cover the rest. We’ll spread the cost of your holiday across at least three payments – the last one will be 98 days before you jet off. And, to help you plan your spends, you can even choose what day of the month your payments come out.
Can I still book with a low deposit?
You sure can. Sorting your holiday should be a stress-free experience, so low deposits are here to stay. If you’ve booked with a low deposit, your Direct Debit plan will automatically do the maths to work out your payments – clever, right? The same goes if you add any snazzy extras to your booking. Fancy a room upgrade or some extra legroom on the plane? Just go to ‘Manage My Booking’ on our website and the system will take care of the rest.
Which First Choice holidays is Direct Debit available on?
If you’re booking a simple beach break, you can use Direct Debit to stagger your payments – no problem. Holiday Villages, SplashWorld and SuneoClub getaways are all covered. Even swanky Premier is part of the gang. In fact, you can pay for most of our holidays by Direct Debit. The only exception is First Choice Multi Centres – these trips are pretty fiddly, so Direct Debit isn’t available at the moment. Watch this space.
What’s the small print?
As usual, anything that says it needs paying on the spot will still have to be paid for straight away. But, apart from that, there’s just one condition – you’ll need to be booking a holiday at least six months in advance to be eligible for Direct Debit payments. If you’ve got any other questions, you can find all the answers on our FAQ page.
