Flexible payment options

A P&O Cruises holiday gives you plenty of options when it comes to paying for your holiday. You can pay the initial deposit and then the remainder when it’s due, pay your balance before it’s due, or simply pay the balance up front. And now, our Pay Monthly scheme gives you the option to spread the cost of your holiday (less your deposit) over equal monthly payments when you book directly with us. Has it ever been easier to dream of the wonderful holiday just over the horizon?

Pay Monthly

If you’ve ever fretted at the prospect of paying for your holiday in one lump sum, we hear you. That’s why you’re now able to spread the cost of your holiday across a number of easy monthly payments – at no extra cost. 

So how does it work?

During your direct booking with us – either online or via our contact centre – after paying a deposit, you’ll be given the option of paying for the balance of your holiday in evenly divided monthly instalments. The payments will be spread between the time of booking and the full balance due date, meaning you’ll have months (and months!) to pay for your holiday gradually. The first payment won’t be taken any earlier than 28 days after you sign up, while the final payment is due no later than 90 days prior to the beginning of your holiday.

Here’s an example based on booking a 7 night holiday with us that departs in October 2021 secured using our current 5% low deposit. This results in 14 equal monthly payments as your holiday must be paid in full 90 days before you depart:

What’s great about the pay monthly option is that it offers full transparency. Not only will you receive booking confirmation after first signing up, but you’ll also be notified of when your payments are due, as well as receiving monthly statements showing any future payments due. And if you’re not happy with the date the monthly payment is set to be taken, then it’s easy to change – simply click ‘show breakdown’ next to your booking, and go from there. 

Already booked your holiday the usual way because you didn’t know paying monthly was an option? No problem– you can opt in to this convenient scheme up to five months before your holiday begins. Simply get in touch with our contact centre to get started.
