At a time where Canadians are increasingly prioritizing travel over essential expenses, and with nearly half of Canadians (48%) reducing other spending to afford travel due to rising inflation costs, as per a 2023 FlightHub survey, offering more affordable travel options can help Canadians enjoy their trips and experiences without compromising their finances.

“Our sister brand has successfully partnered with Affirm in the United States for nearly five years, and now we are thrilled to offer greater flexibility and choice at checkout to eligible FlightHub travellers in our home country, Canada,” said Christina Allen, Vice President of Partnerships at FlightHub. “With summer approaching, many Canadians are eager to plan their next big getaway. By expanding into the Canadian market with Affirm, we aim to make travel more budget-friendly and accessible.”

Through this partnership, FlightHub aims to make booking and paying for flights more convenient and flexible. By selecting Affirm at checkout, consumers can split the total cost of their purchase of $200 CAD or more into monthly payments, subject to eligibility. They are shown the total cost of their purchase up front and won’t pay more than they agree to at checkout, as there are no late or hidden fees when paying over time with Affirm.

“We’re thrilled to bring the flexibility and transparency of Affirm to FlightHub’s Canadian consumers, building on the success of our existing partnership in the U.S.,” said Stacey Paul, Senior Director of Client Success at Affirm. “Vacations are top-of-mind for Canadians as summer nears, but that doesn’t mean they’re willing to compromise their finances. Affirm offers a smart way to pay, enabling eligible consumers to purchase in the way that works for their budgets, without being saddled with revolving interest or late fees.”
