One year ago, CheapAir.com introduced monthly payments for flights as an easy and simple payment option for domestic and international flights – to help keep your travel costs manageable.
It’s been our pleasure to bring you first-in-industry installment payments that let you Fly Now and Pay Later.
We’re happy to report that CheapAir.com’s monthly payment option (which lets you pay over 3, 6 or 12 months*) has been well received. The top 10 domestic destinations you’ve traveled to with monthly payments:

To buy a flight with monthly payments, simply choose “monthly payments” at checkout. You’ll be redirected to our lending partner, Affirm, where you’ll go through a real-time approval that takes just a few minutes. You provide your full name, mobile number, email address, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number. You then find out if you qualify for monthly payments and can quickly complete your flight purchase!
For purchases of $100.00 or more, you’ll generally see three loan term options (3, 6, or 12 months), exactly how much your monthly payment will be under each option, and your interest rate (*rates from 10-30% APR based on creditworthiness). That’s all you need to do to buy travel now and make easy, budget-friendly payments.
