The sites that let you choose and book your holiday now and pay later using ZipPay.
Ever seen a sale on a holiday you wanted to book but couldn't quite commit because you hadn't saved the funds yet? That's where zipPay can come in.
It's a payment option that allows you to have online credit that can be used to purchase products at participating stores across the web, including holiday items such as tours and travel experiences.
After signing up and being approved for an account, you can them make purchases using your credit. You can then pay your purchase back in weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments, whichever suits you. While ZipPay is interest-free it isn't a completely free service and fees you may incur include a one-off establishment fee, which ranges from $0-99, late-repayment fees and a monthly account keeping fee of $6 per month. This is waived if your account has $0 balance at the end of your monthly statement period.
zipMoney is closely related to zipPay but is used for larger purchases and follows the same signup and approval process. Payments for ZipMoney are made in 3, 6 or 12 months and the amount borrowed won't accrue interest unless you fail to repay the amount within the nominated interest-free period.
