Transnational eGlobal Inc. (TeGI), the company powering airline booking platform tripmoba.com®, and First Digital Finance Corporation (FDFC), the player behind installment payment platform BillEase, announced their partnership last February 17. This will give travelers another payment option for their flights, particularly those without bank accounts or credit cards.
Customers can start by creating an account on BillEase, which provides repayment period options of three, six, and 12 months, and an interest rate between 0 to 2.49%. Once they are done booking their flight on tripmoba.com®, they can choose BillEase as their payment option like they would with the other usual payment platforms.
TeGl and FDFC hope that their collaboration can help more Filipinos travel, especially since upfront cost is a major barrier for most.
“Traveling can be expensive whether you’re traveling locally or across the world,” said Carlo Severino, President at TeGI. “As a booking platform for new generations of travelers, we are pleased that our partnership with BillEase will give our customers a simple payment option to make booking airline tickets more affordable”.
