One of the biggest problems I run into when it comes to planning and booking a vacation is how I’m going to pay for it all upfront and still get the best deal. How many times have you been browsing deal sites or get an email about a great vacation package only to realize that you have to put down a huge deposit or pay in full in order to lock in the price?
In most cases, this isn’t a realistic or affordable option. If you’re anything like me, I like to research the heck out of everything when it comes to planning and booking a vacation, but in the search for the best deal, sometimes I actually miss out on it thinking there might be something better along the way. BUT, I’ve got some great news for you and it’s called the Layaway Program by Get Away Today.
What is Get Away Today?
Get Away Today is a full-service travel agency with exceptional savings and service. Their agents are vacation experts who know and love all things travel. They specialize in Southern California but would love to send you anywhere you want to go. If you do find yourself heading to Southern California, be sure to use the promo code Sunshine10 for an additional $10 off your vacation package.
How does the Layaway Plan work?
Do you want to book a vacation but can’t pay for it all at once? Good news, you can get a Layaway Plan through Get Away Today!
Get Away Today is all about giving you the best vacation experience for the best price with the option to spread out payments in a way that works best for you. If you’re heading to Southern California, you can set up a Layaway Plan with us for only $175 down (which includes an additional $99 non-refundable fee). Then, make as many payments as you want, for as much as you want, whenever you want, as long as your vacation is paid off 8 days before travel.
*NOTE* If you’re traveling somewhere other than Southern California, the down payment may vary. Just ask your travel agent and they will be able to help you out and answer your questions!
Why get a Layaway Plan?
This flexible plan not only allows you to spread out your payments, but also helps you lock-in great deals before they change. For example, if Get Away Today is offering discount Disneyland tickets for Adults at Kids’ prices and you want to get the deal before it’s gone, but not pay for everything right now, you still can! Just let us know you’d like to do a layaway plan and lock-in those extra savings while making it super convenient and affordable for you.
How do I get signed up for the Layaway Plan?
You can choose the Layaway Plan option on the phone while speaking with an agent at 855-GET-AWAY or online at getawaytoday.com. If you decide to call in, let the travel agent know you’d like to do one and they will set it up for you. If you go online, here is a step by step guide of how to do it:
- Pick a date to travel (needs to be at least 8 days out to get a layaway plan).
- Choose your package (hotel, tickets, whatever you’d like to book).
- Add your vacation package to the cart and select check out.
- A login page will come up and you will need to be logged in to get a Layaway Plan.
- Follow the instructions until the payment page.
- Select “Layaway Plan” for your payment method.
- Fill in your payment information and continue until processed.
- Now you have a Layaway Plan!
All you need to do is call in to make payments whenever you want OR go online to do the same, making sure to have it all paid off at least 8 days before travel. Plus, there is no interest like there would be on a credit card–it’s a win-win!
What if I want to make changes to my plans after signing up for the Layaway Plan?
You can! All you need to do is contact Get Away Today and ask them. For example, if a better hotel deal comes out, you can get your plan switched. This can make a huge difference in your savings, especially if you are able to take advantage of free nights. Because of the relationship Get Away Today has with so many of the hotels in the Anaheim area, you will often qualify for special perks that aren’t available when booking through any other service (including the hotels own site).
What are you waiting for?
Now that you know how super easy, inexpensive and convenient booking with a Layaway Plan is, what are you waiting for? Whether you’re going next month or next year, Get Away Today’s Layaway Plan makes it possible to book it all right now! Give their agents a call at 855-GET-AWAY or book online at getawaytoday.com. And remember, if you’re booking a vacation to Southern California, be sure to use the promo code Sunshine10 for an additional $10 off your vacation package and let them know that Sunshine & Munchkins sent you!
Does this program get you excited to book your next vacation? I know that it definitely makes going to the happiest place on earth more affordable for me and my family without the stress of having to pay for it all upfront. My family and I love visiting during Halloween time! It’s the magic of Disney combined with the silly spookiness of Halloween and we loved every minute of it. If your family has been considering a trip to Disneyland and/or Southern California, definitely check out the Layaway Program!
What is your favorite time of year to visit Disneyland? If you haven’t been, when would you want to go?
Such a great service! It would be so nice to spread out payments.
This is a pretty genius idea. I don't usually book vacations to super touristy spots, but I'll log this away so I can in the future!
