Romanians like to go on holiday often, but the related costs might become a challenge this year and moving forward amid the general rise in prices. To support Romanians in the current economic context, tbi bank has launched a BNPL (Buy Now, Pay Later) financing solution that allows them to pay for their holidays purchased from Christian Tour, one of the largest tour operators in Romania.
This collaboration involves financing tourist packages offered in all 39 locations of Christian Tour. Financing can be obtained 100% online and remotely, thus increasing the efficiency and speed of the process. tbi’s solutions allow people to quickly cover the full holiday cost, in affordable and fixed monthly installments.
“Holidays are an opportunity to relax and have a good time, and Romanians love to take time off and travel to recharge their batteries. However, when costs exceed a certain level, people tend to postpone planning the holiday and give up their need for relaxation. That’s why we’re offering the Romanians the chance to buy the package they want now and pay it later in monthly installments”, said Ionut Sabadac, VP Merchant Solutions, tbi.
