Air Canada Vacations has announced a new partnership with buy-now, pay-later (BNPL) company Uplift to provide travellers with more flexible payment options. Uplift’s services are already available on Air Canada Vacations’ web site.

Uplift provides the ability to book a trip and spread the cost over monthly payments. Consumers can compare the costs of paying monthly with those of paying upfront, and choose whichever option works best for them. When selecting monthly payments, customers can apply online to receive an estimate of monthly payments and advance purchase amounts.

According to a press release, there are no late or early payment penalties, and travellers see the monthly payment amount and total cost of the trip at the time of booking.


Travellers can use Uplift to secure best available pricing, book a last-minute trip, and add benefits such as preferred seats or upgrade flights to Premium Economy and Business Class, all while managing the costs with fixed monthly payments.

“Today’s consumers want more flexibility and we are excited to offer Uplift and help more people’s dreams travel,” said Air Canada Vacations Vice President Nino Montagnese.

“The added flexibility for customers to pay over time through the Uplift partnership allows our customers to take the holidays they’ve been waiting for.”

“We truly are excited about this partnership, and it is an honour to work with one of Canada’s most trusted travel brands”, said Denise Heffron, Managing Director, Uplift Canada.

“Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone and this partnership accelerates our ability to provide Canadians with the vacations they deserve.”

Uplift currently partners with over 200 airlines, cruise lines, resorts and other travel brands to offer BNPL payment options.
