The Layaway Purchase Plan at Westside International Travel Inc. makes it possible to afford a vacation even in these challenging times by putting a monthly payment in your regular monthly budget.
The following video is an example of one of our many layaway vacation customer experiences. He goes into detail explaining the benefits that he is receiving from the program for his upcoming honeymoon.
Spread The Payments Out
The way it works is simple; you spread the payments out over time. The size of the payment and the number of payments will depend on how much time exists between the first deposit on your trip and the date the final payment is due to the vendor being used.
The initial deposit for a tour or vacation package is usually $100 - $150 per person. This would be your first payment. For each trip the initial deposit to the vendor being used must be satisfied before we implement the payment plan. Most tour and vacation package vendors require their final payment 45 days prior to the start of travel. If airfare is involved the air cost is, at times, due with the initial deposit. That is the case only if the tour or package provider does not have a special contract for the airfare itinerary being used. If you can, use one of their special contracted air itineraries, then the airfare portion of your package is treated as part of the whole package and no separate payment is required. We can counsel you on which alternative is in your best interest.
Top Layaway Travel Destinations
We specialize in all inclusive layaway vacations to places like Mexico (Cancun - Riviera Maya - Puerto Vallarta - Cabo San Lucas and Ixtapa), Jamaica, and Dominican Republic. We also have the best Hawaii package programs available.
You will find lots of specials, exclusive pricing and value added benefits included in our ever-changing offers to you. And, one advantage that we can offer you regardless of which form of package you choose is a reduced deposit and a payment plan to help you strecth out your payments. So you will not only enjoy the benefits of the Layaway Travel Program, but the great value of an all inclusive vacation package.
Cruise lines vary in the initial deposit amount due. The deposit will be different based on the length of the cruise, but the range is usually $100 - $450 per person, with only occasionally having it be higher. This year however, we are experiencing changes in the deposit amounts normally charged by the cruise lines, and many cruise lines are reducing their deposit amount by as much as 50%. We will, of course, make sure you are taking advantage of any and all discounts available at the time you make your reservation. Cruise lines always include the air cost in the total purchase, so it is never charged as a separate "up front" cost. This is an advantage to those planning a cruise vacation that requires air travel. Cruise lines require their final payment on a trip 75-90 days prior to he departure date depending on the cruise line.
So, in order to get the most benefit out of a Layaway Purchase Plan you will want to give yourself plenty of lead time. Plan today for the trip you will experience 6-10 months from now.
If your trip price goes down while you are in the payment period you will be able to take advantage of the savings if your trip is a cruise. When it comes to a package or tour the rules vary by vendor, but we will seek to get you satisfaction. If the price of your trip goes up, which happens many times, you are protected from the price increase.
