How does Afterpay work for accommodation bookings?

Using Afterpay for your stay is the same as checking out with a credit card or PayPal. The accommodation is yours from the moment of the booking.

The difference with Afterpay is that fortnightly repayments are automatically taken out of the account, over 8 weeks. Before the scheduled payments are made, a text message is sent as a reminder so you can make sure the funds are in your account.

So how do you book with Afterpay?

  1. Pick your stay of choice. Search through endless hotels and destinations before reserving a stay in your cart.
  2. Fill in your details. As with all accommodation bookings, pop in the required personal information.
  3. Pick Afterpay. When you get to the payment method, simply tick the Afterpay option. Most sites will then redirect you to Afterpay to complete the booking.

What are the pros and cons of using Afterpay to book accommodation?

  • Only an upfront payment of 20% of your booking
  • Interest-free payments
  • 8 weeks to pay bookings off
  • Instant approval
  • High spending maximum of $1,500 in a single transaction ($2,000 maximum owing at any one time)
  • Must be over the age of 18 to use Afterpay
  • Late fees apply. For orders over $40 this is $10 plus $7 for non-payment after 7-days.
  • Refunds can get messy as they go through the provider's policy

What happens after I book accommodation with Afterpay?

Booking your next stay with Afterpay is no different than if you paid via standard card methods. Expect 4 interest-free fortnightly repayments to be taken out of your account after booking.
