Travel payment brand Uplift is partnering with Carnival Cruise Line to enable its
passengers to pay over 24 months with no down payment.
Earlier this month, Uplift added United Airlines to its financing
program. Existing Uplift partners include Kayak, American Airlines Vacations,
Norwegian Cruise Line, Universal Orlando Resort and Volaris.
For Carnival passengers, Uplift Pay Monthly is an
alternative to the cruise line’s in-house payment program, EasyPay.
Uplift Pay Monthly is integrated into Carnival's existing
booking and payment processes so guests receive an instant decision on the financing.
There are no prepayment penalties.

"Our mission is to make travel more accessible,
affordable and rewarding for everyone," says Uplift president Rob
"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."
Uplift’s financing program with United is available for
customers booking flights from the United States to the more than 350 global
cities the airline serves.
“We began offering Uplift Pay Monthly in 2017 with United
Vacations and received great feedback from our customers about the option to
pay over time,” says Praveen Sharma, United’s vice president of digital products
“Expanding Uplift’s flexible purchase option to flight tickets now
allows even more customers to travel the world and create memories that will
last a lifetime.”
Earlier this year, Uplift raised a $123 million financing round led by Madrone Capital.
