Tom Botts, Chief Commercial Officer, Uplift
Guests vacationing at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts will be able to utilize the Uplift pay-over time with monthly installments rather than paying in full at the time of their booking. Customers will see the total cost of their trip upfront along with the monthly payment amount and can choose from three months to 24 monthly installments.* With Uplift, there are no fees, including no late fees or prepayment penalties, and travel can happen before customers complete their payments.
