Found 5th Apr 2010
Hi, I would like to take a holiday this year, and want to get it booked, but cannot afford to pay it all in one go.
Does anyone know which holiday providers I can book with where I can pay a deposit, and then pay the remaining balance in installments up untill the holiday date ?
I have searched and searched but they all want the outstanding balance when I book.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

When are you looking at travelling?
I always pay my hols off in installments as long as it is payed up in full by the due date, most holiday shop allow you to do this.
I think OP may be wanting to go in the next 8 weeks or so and that is why full payment is being requested.
try first choice
oh right yeah i want to go between may and september so perhaps that is why then, do i have to book well in advance to pay it off in installments ?
i could afford to pay it off a couple hundred a month just not the whole lot in one go, theres me hubby and 4 kids and its approx £1200 - £2000+ to go somewhere like lanzarote/tenerife or even anywhere in spain

Don't know a direct answer but what about a bank loan or 0% credit card?



what credit card providers can i get that are 0 % ???
Sorry to be negative, but if you can't afford it, you should probably look at saving for it rather than looking for a quick fix?

practically all want a 10-20% depost up front and the balance 8-12 weeks before departue so book one for september with balance due in July.
Ok

Your best bet to allow you to spread the payments would be to go in September. Full balance's usually have to be paid around 8 to 10 weeks prior to departure.

You can use any high street travel agents or better still their online sites and really your best bet is to book a package.

If you try to book cheap flights etc, you do have to pay for them in full immediately.
Thomson did last time I booked online
If you were looking at a biggy say to USA, Florida etc, I know Virgin allow you to set up a direct debit for balance.

We use this service but always book around a year before travel.
thanks for all the help. looks like it's butlins this year then eh !! :)P
Thomas Cook have done it for me for my Turkey holiday.

i know that but even to go in september , the balance needs to be paid off by june that's just 2 months away i was hoiping there would be one that i could pay off untill just before i went ... i think the best thing as someone else said , would be to just save up whatever i would be paying off monthly to book one in advance, and just try to get a late deal. By booking in advance they seem to be totalling 3/4 K, and i just cannot afford that !! lol
I do appreciate the guidance though
I want t go to vegas and pay in installments for next year help
Be careful how you pay incase they go bust and you got no protection. Pay with credit card or something, check your card provider covers the type of payments made.
direct line holidays I'm sure lets you set up a direct debit to pay balance,I'm sure they price match too.
on the beach will let you pay a deposit and I think the rest becomes due 4 weeks before, they are usually a good price too
