Is this targeted at the under-credited, and if so, are you servicing this segment with higher interest rates than credit cards, given the risk profile that prohibits them from having credit cards in the first place? Or is the target market people who could have credit cards but choose not to? I’m just wrapping my head around where the market gap and profit margin is.

@bryonshannon Thanks for the inquiry. The service is for users who don't want to or can't afford to make an entire payment at once. It gives them the option to reserve at a fraction of the total cost, and make installment payments -- which should be completed before their departure date. The service fee is comparable to fair market rates, and should be lower in many situations.

@jacarandachick Thank you for the comment! It is primarily US-based; however, it allows some international travel.

@phillipprado Well, it was super easy and I cant say for future but the price is reasonable and if I paid in full immediately I would pay the same amount. But Im not sure how it works if I spot making payments, to be honest
