From today, US customers using the world’s first voice travel assistant service, MyVoiceTravel, will benefit from additional options to spread the cost of their flights at the time of booking.
Teaming up with specialist travel fintech provider, Fly Now Pay Later, which provides consumers with alternative and more flexible options to finance upcoming trips, US passengers searching and paying for flights using their voice through Amazon Alexa can now choose to split the amount owed over 12 months when they say “Book Now” and check out via MyVoiceTravel’s website.
Qualifying travellers can make use of Fly Now Pay Later’s simple payment platform to book any of the 300,000 global airlines and 180,00 hotels and activities in over 185 destinations worldwide that MyVoiceTravel supplies tickets for, easing the financial burden of organizing travel and helping to facilitate a frictionless and less stressful booking experience.
Mirko Marmai, VP, Operations, Quo Vadis Travel LLC who unveiled the new voice-activated travel sales channel in 2022 said “With more than 55 years in the industry, we’ve helped our customers to experience the wonder of our world through exceptional travel experiences.
“Today, the service of a travel agency is not limited to the sale of a plane ticket or hotel booking but extends to absolutely everything around it that makes the entire experience more accessible and pleasurable.
“MyVoiceTravel was born out of an ambition to make booking travel faster, easier and more intuitive. In the same way travel and technology is always changing, needs are also constantly shifting.
“A recent study showed that two in three respondents would be more likely to buy from a travel provider if it allowed them to pay in installments. And as such, we felt it was essential to increase MyVoiceTravel’s range of payment options to meet those needs.
“We feel Fly Now Pay Later is absolutely the right partner to help provide this greater choice and flexibility when our customers fly.”
