Going to the happiest place on earth doesn't have to be expensive!  Learn more about a Get Away Today's Layaway Lock-In Program to help you save money and make going to Disneyland a reality for your family!

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 Lock-In Program by Get Away Today.  My friend Lexi works there and has offered to share the details on this amazing program.  Read below to find out more!

Hi guys, Lexi here with Get Away Today.  Do you want to book a vacation but can’t pay for it all at once?  Good news, you can get a Layaway Lock-In Plan through Get Away Today!  We are a full-service travel agency with exceptional savings and service.  Our agents are vacation experts who know and love all things travel.  We 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 Sunshine for an additional $10 off your vacation package.

How does it work?
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 Lock-In Plan with us for only $125 down (which includes an additional $50 non-refundable fee) and 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 15 days before travel.  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 Lock-In 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 one?
You can choose the Layaway Lock-In 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:

  1. Pick a date to travel (needs to be at least 15 days out to get a layaway plan).
  2. Choose your package (hotel, tickets, whatever you’d like to book).
  3. Add your vacation package to the cart and select check out.
  4. A login page will come up and you will need to be logged in to get a Layaway Plan.
  5. Follow the instructions until the payment page.
  6. Select “Layaway Plan” for your payment method.
  7. Fill in your payment information and continue until processed.
  8. Now you have a Layaway Lock-In 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 15 days before travel.  Plus, there is no interest like there would be on a credit card–it’s a win-win!

Now that you know how super easy, inexpensive and convenient booking with a Layaway Lock-In Plan is, what are you waiting for?  Whether you’re going next month or next year, Get Away Today’s Layaway Lock-In Plan makes it possible to book it all right now!  Give our 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 Sunshine for an additional $10 off your vacation package and let them know that Sunshine & Munchkins sent you!

My family and I visited Disneyland a couple of years ago during Halloween and it was so fun!  It was 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 Lock-In Program!
