We all need a little time off every once in a while but even the idea of finding the cash for a holiday is enough to make you break into a cold sweat. Luckily for budget-conscious South Africans there’s a new, affordable, and versatile way to pay for your next holiday – lay-buy travel! Of course, the lay-buy concept is nothing new to locals but very few companies have ventured into the lay-buy travel game until now! Hippo.co.za has teamed up with Fomo Travel to make this innovative travel solution even more accessible to South Africans to travel both locally and abroad by allowing them to book a holiday up to 24 months in advance and pay off the trip in instalments!

Interest-free travel instalments without breaking the bank? Sign us up! Lay-buy travel allows travellers to secure the holiday of their dreams in just a few simple online steps. That’s right, forget compromising between saving and travelling – you can do both! The consumer-friendly website allows you to compare a wide range of local and international holiday packages, or choose a customised package at an affordable rate and pay monthly premiums up until your travel date. There are loads of trips to choose from including heavenly holidays to Mauritius, France, Mozambique, and even Knysna, Western Cape. So, when the travel bite bugs users simply need visit the website to search for their ideal trip.

The great thing about lay-buy travel is that it’s more of a ‘forced savings’ of sorts. Rather than creating unnecessary debt on your credit card you can pay a small portion of your holiday package up front and then pay off the rest with absolutely zero interest. The product also allows your friends and family to contribute to your package should they wish – the perfect non-traditional gift idea for guests attending a destination wedding.
