Installments

As a low‑margin and highly price competitive, pricing payment services is critical for OTAs as low as possible. Therefore, installments can ensure higher conversion rates once travelers can split the total amount of a plane ticket or hotel accommodation. Paying the monthly cost in local currency is a distinguishing feature in the customer decision‑making process and a must‑have payment feature for OTAs. By offering installments as a payment alternative, you increase the purchasing power of your audience, encouraging them to invest higher amounts.
