TORONTO, June 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Flexiti Financial ("Flexiti"), a leading provider of point-of-sale consumer financing solutions for retailers, announced today that The Travel Agent Next Door (TTAND), Canada's premier travel agency services network, will adopt its point-of-sale financing solution. This announcement follows news earlier this month that TTAND will be offering a deferred payment program to their customers.
Using Flexiti's mobile, fully automated and 100% paperless financing solution, TTAND will be able to offer its clients 0% sales financing on deferred and equal monthly payment plans on travel packages when they book with one of over 800 travel agents in the network. Customers will be able to book and finance their interest-free travel in person or over the phone with a travel agent. With Flexiti and their flexible financing options, TTAND agents can offer travelers the option to 'travel now, pay later', making dream vacations more affordable.
"TTAND was created with the mission to provide superior support and services to the retail travel industry," said Flemming Friisdahl, founder of TTAND. "By combining Flexiti's technology together with TTAND's, we continue to deliver on this promise and are excited to provide travelers with the best expanded payment options. We believe strongly that this new program will be a game changer and we are very excited to be the first to launch a 0% interest payment plan in Canada."
Flexiti's simple and efficient omni-channel solution addresses the growing trend towards offering payment plans for travel and is a proven sales driver that helps increase average purchase sizes and builds brand loyalty. Retailers in all verticals have experienced a 200% to 380% rise in financed sales volumes after migrating from previous financing platforms.
