Last week, Caribbean Airlines announced the launch of its new option allowing travelers to pay for their flights at a later time.

If you’re traveling within a two to six-month period, you can now hold a reservation by paying a 25 percent deposit.

Caribbean Airlines released a statement saying the plan will allow travelers to purchase flight tickets and hold a reservation on any flight originating from Guyana and also routes specifically from Trinidad to New York.

Garvin Medera, CEO of Caribbean Airlines says, “We’re continuing to transform the customer experience by adding more flexibility and options to enhance the travel experience. Caribbean Layaway enables travelers to book trips and lock in competitive and affordable prices, using this reasonable payment plan.”

Travelers would be expected to pay the remaining balance of their flight at a specified later date. Caribbean Airlines confirmed in its statement that routes will be added to the Caribbean Layaway program as time progresses. Customers can stay updated on the routes by heading to the Promotions page on the Caribbean Airlines website.

Payment Information

The first deposit has to be paid three days after booking the reservation.

After the first deposit, your payments will be divided “based on persons traveling within two to four months (60 to 120 days), and those traveling within four to six months (121 to 180 days), according to the website.

If your second payment is missed, your reservation will be canceled and your first deposit will not be refunded.

The payment plan is a guide, stating minimum amounts, but you can pay more than the suggested amounts.

How To Book With The Caribbean Layaway Program

Unfortunately, the layaway program isn’t available online at the moment. You can access the promotion at ticket offices in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and Guyana.
