HAL introduces interest free, "pay-as-you-go" EZpay feature

Holland America Line has introduced a new EZpay feature that makes it even easier to budget for a dream vacation.

EZpay spreads out the cruise balance into equal, interest-free monthly payments leading up to final payment,allowing guests to pay over a set period of time.

The plan gives guests the flexibility to pay for their cruise at their own pace, with the ability to opt out at any time without penalty.

HAL's EZpay eligibility

Nearly all of Holland America Line's worldwide itineraries are eligible for EZpay, as long as they are not within the final payment deadline. Following the payment of a cruise deposit, EZpay charges a supplied credit card once a month to pay for the cruise balance in full by the final payment deadline, and there are no additional fees.

"We continually look for ways to enhance our guests' experience even before they step foot on one of our ships, and EZpay allows the flexibility to pay off their cruise at their own pace," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. "Cruising is the best vacation value there is, and EZpay makes it possible for our guests to book their dream vacation now and conveniently budget it over an extended period of time."

Guests can choose the date of the monthly charge and a confirmation is sent following each payment. Extra funds also can be added to a payment, with the remaining balance recalculated into equal amounts.

To sign up for EZpay, guests can request it when booking a cruise with a travel advisor or a Holland America Line representative. EZpay may be requested at any time leading up to final payment.
