  3. Advantage Payment Plan: Please call 800-771-5353 for full details and further consultation. To summarize the Advantage Payment Plan, you can put down a minimum $199 down payment and then make a $199 a month installment until it is paid off even after the date of travel. One stipulation is that you must have 40% of the total payment in by the date of travel. It is strongly advised that a larger down payment is deposited in the beginning so if you choose to do the $199 a month plan, you can reach 40% prior to the date of travel. This program closes at the end of September but other payment schedules may become available at later dates. Please see the website for up-to-date information or call 800-771-5353 for more details.
