Allows Consumers to Pay for Accommodations Through Interest-free Installments with Convenient and Flexible Payment Options when Booking Travel

Seamless Integration Enables Marketing Opportunities in Social Media Travel Package Campaigns and Direct-to-Consumer Marketing Channels to Drive Sales and Conversion Rates

SUNRISE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2024 / NextTrip, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTRP) ("NextTrip," "we," "our," or the "Company"), a travel technology company, today announced the launch of FlexPay, a proprietary technology for its direct-to-consumer travel booking website giving customers new flexible payment options and exclusive deals.

FlexPay is a flexible form of short-term financing that allows customers to pay for accommodations over time through interest-free installments. FlexPay differentiates itself from other travel booking sites with flexible payment and deposit options, exclusive deals, and does not run credit checks or charge interest. Offered as a payment option at checkout, travelers can now book their vacation for as little as $1.00 down at eligible properties.

"The timing of our FlexPay launch aligns perfectly with the increasing popularity of ‘buy now, pay later' (BNPL) with consumers, and our ongoing website layout and technology enhancements," said Bill Kerby, Chief Executive Officer of NextTrip. "Consumers continue to utilize ‘buy now, pay later' services across a variety of platforms, accounting for 4% of 2021 e-commerce transaction value in Canada and the US, which is expected to more than double to 9% by 2025, according to the FIS-Worldpay Global Payments Report 2023. According to TravelBoom, consumers are open to flexible payment options, with 58% likely to choose a hotel offering 'buy now, pay later' option. They also report that alternate payments are very likely to increase bookings from younger travelers, with 82% of travelers ages 25-34 influenced by alternative payment methods.

"Our new FlexPay technology is designed to be seamlessly integrated into the booking experience and enables marketing opportunities throughout the path to purchase. FlexPay will also be utilized in social media market travel package campaigns and direct-to-consumer marketing channels. We believe that by expanding affordability and flexibility for our customers, FlexPay will drive sales and conversion rates. FlexPay and our other development initiatives are now positioned to support and amplify enhanced marketing campaigns, which are expected to gain momentum this summer and extend into the fall booking season," concluded Kerby.
