PayNowStayLater.com offers resorts prepaid forward bookings now

Hon. Minister Faiyaz Koya and Pacific Bedbank General Manager Ioane Naivalura

Nadi based Pacific Bedbank announces the launch by Honorable Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism & Transport Mr. Faiyaz Siddiq Koya of PayNowStayLater.com, a travel concept for the new global norm in Covid impacted tourism.  This new product, PayNowStayLater.com, is backed by current Pacific Bedbank’s chairman Mr. Bill Whiting – a well-known and respected tourism identity; and will greatly benefit all Fiji and Pacific Island properties by generating immediate new prepaid bookings.

The rationale behind PayNowStayLater.com is to keep the travel dream alive and become a complementary direct channel for South Pacific hotels and resorts to receive incremental business in the coming months. With most travelers unsure of their travel dates or when international travel will return to normal, the majority of travelers will seek flexibility and great deals on an authentic online platform. PayNowStayLater.com is the platform which can offer this.

General Manager of Pacific Bedbank and PayNowStayLater.com, Mr. Ioane Naivalurua (Jnr), states: “This product is a centralized online platform for hotels and resorts to display unbelievable deals with which to capture forward bookings now and allow travelers the flexibility to decide their stay dates later. This flexibility in travel dates, offers the travelers peace of mind and lessens worry or stress with which to secure a fantastic deal.”

He further states, “Most hotels/resorts in the South Pacific at this time are in dire need of quick cashflow to meet fixed costs and be ready to shift out of hibernation when international travel begins to normalize. PayNowStayLater.com can provide this quick cashflow through our 7-day payment policy, significantly decreasing the burden of cost related to the marketing of products through various online channels, while also allowing access to client booking details for which hoteliers can upsell other product offerings and engagement with their new customers prior to their travel.”

“Crucial for our success will be the quick up-scaling of production and we are confident that with the roll out of our live market testing in the coming weeks, we will be able to sharpen our focus and efforts for a more sustained production. We continue to be incredibly grateful for the support from the Honorable Minister, the CEO for Tourism Fiji, teams for the Fiji Ministry for Commerce, Trade, Tourism & Transport and Tourism Fiji who have responded quickly to our request for assistance,” adds Mr. Naivalurua (Jnr).

One of Pacific Bedbank Limited’s strategic goals for Paynowstaylater.com is to deliver “Worry-free planning and Risk-free” booking user experience with unbelievable deals.  Utilizing amazing offers, travel flexibility and booking efficiency, the site will connect travelers and dreamers to different hotels and resorts in the South Pacific through one consolidated platform.  Whether it be a romantic escape, family trip, a special birthday celebration or a friend’s getaway, there will be something to suit each holiday type desire for travel to the Pacific Islands and Fiji.

Properties are encouraged to offer their best deal ever with ultra-flexible travel conditions to suit the new normal.

Paynowstaylater.com will go live to consumers from mid-July onwards.  For more information or if you are interested to join Paynowstaylater.com as a hotelier partner, you can do so here or email sales@paynowstaylater.com.
