Partnership between leading Australian travel retailer and digital payments platform enables Australians the option to travel now and pay later.


Luxury Escapes announced it had become the largest Australian travel retailer to partner with ASX-listed zipMoney Limited (ASX: ZML) and is now offering Australians the option to travel now and pay later.


Luxury Escapes General Manager, Blake Hutchison, said the agreement with zipMoney meant Luxury Escapes’ million-plus members now have the flexibility to book their holiday today and pay over time in interest-free instalments.


“Luxury Escapes is delighted to partner with zipMoney to simplify our members’ online travel booking experience,” Mr Hutchison said.


“We want every Australian to experience a Luxury Escape, and now the world’s best holidays can be purchased now and paid for over time with zipMoney. It’s just one of the many new ways we’re responding to customer feedback.


“Innovation and financial technology are now pervasive. Customers have come to expect flexibility, as a part of everyday life, and this technology in particular is designed to make high priced and desirable product and services more approachable.”


“Luxury Escapes customers average more than $1500 per booking and we believe zipMoney provides an added incentive for them to make Luxury Escapes their single destination for all their travel needs” Mr Hutchinson said.


zipMoney Founder Larry Diamond, said: “Luxury Escapes is a premier brand offering unique travel experiences to close to one million members. We look forward to partnering with Luxury Escapes as it continues to provide Australian families and millennials with exclusive offers and access to a huge range of travel destinations.”
