Airfordable is a company that provides its customers with the opportunity to book future flights and pay later in installments.
Since its establishment in 2014, Airfordable has been making significant changes to the travel industry. The company has many advantages compared to other companies and is attracting many more customers with convenient payment plans.
Below is a brief overview of Airfordable and an honest review of their products and services – check out more on Melanin Voyage.
Airfordable was founded in 2014 by Ama Marfo, Craig Henry, and Emmanuel Buah. They wished to create a company that brought affordable travel to the masses.
According to the company, Airfordable has booked 7,000,000 miles worth of air travel for customers so far. This is impressive when you consider its small size. Only around 30,000 people use Airfordable regularly, and this number includes both domestic and international passengers.
Airfordable has its sights fixed firmly on the future. They plan to continue their expansion by introducing holiday packages and hotel chains.
The Airfordable Platform
Airfordable has an easy-to-use website that makes booking flights simple. What was intended as a website where people could easily access live information and book flights in just a few clicks.
Airfordable well and indeed achieved its mission. The site is not only attractive, but it is also advantageous. Airfordable gives you access to thousands of flights all in one place. In addition, you can secure your booking and put a down payment on your flight instantly, all from the Airfordable site.
How Does It Work?
The operating system for Airfordable is quite simple.
The first step is to create an account for yourself. If you have a current account, log in to your account; otherwise, go to the sign-up section and open a new account for yourself.
Secondly, all you have to do is search for the flight you want from Google Flights, Expedia or Orbitz, take a screenshot of the flight details and send it to Airfordable.
Thirdly, Airfordable will send you the available installment options for the flight you want, and you secure your flight with a down payment that is a fraction of the cost of the flight – read more here.
The remaining balance will be divided into installments automatically, and payment can be stretched over a maximum of four installments.
After the payment process is completed, you will be informed by an email that your payments are finalized, and your e-ticket will be attached.
All that is left for you to do is pack your bags and look forward to your trip!
To book a flight through the Airfordable site, you must first search for available flights yourself and send them to Airfordable via the website.
Airfordable then books the flight on your behalf, paying in full – essentially reserving that flight for you. This makes you happen almost instantly (after you confirm the payment scheduling and agree to the terms) and is an excellent option if you find an incredible deal that is just a little over budget for immediate payment in full.
What Airfordable cannot do, however, is promise that you won’t find a cheaper deal elsewhere later. Airfordable certainly protects you against price increases but does not offer you the difference if your flight goes down in price at any time after booking.
Here are the best airlines to book with via Affordable, and more are being added to the list in the coming months:
- Google flight
Any airline website can be used except TAP Portugal. All services used through the site are of the highest quality and completely customer-oriented. You can make up to five bookings at once via Airfordable – Click to learn more.
When booking, you can not only book on your behalf but on behalf of others.
To do this, you will need to enter the information of all traveling parties in the additional information form.
The ticket will remain under your responsibility, including payment. Adding others to your booking does not mean that they will share in any penalization for late or non-payment. However, all security protections will belong to you as the primary person.
Payments and Service Fees
Your payments are automatically withdrawn from your card according to a schedule set by Airfordable. Airfordable charges between 10-20% on top of the ticket price for their services. This can be worth it if it is an incredible deal, to begin with, if not then perhaps traditional booking methods may be a cheaper option.
This will be made 100% clear to you before you confirm and all the information will be sent to you via email.
If you want to make some changes to the payment dates, you can. Airfordable is all about flexibility, but the amount must be cleared in full before your flight is due. How long before your payment date is subject to the flight.
Pricing is valid as of the date you book the flight, and pricing cannot be changed. If you are currently in an installment payment program and you want to cancel the booking, you can get a full refund so long as you cancel within 24 hours of purchase.
Airfordable is undoubtedly a site worth visiting if you want to make the trip of a lifetime and do not have the cash upfront to pay for it in full, or the airline does not offer installments directly.
Airfordable has helped many travelers go further for cheaper. It is undeniably a great asset to the flight industry, making special flights and exotic locations more accessible to people who are otherwise out of options. We recommend checking them out for your next big trip.
