Vacation Layaway - Book Your 2014 Vacation Now and Pay Later!
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Put down as little as $100 per person and reserve your spot on a dream vacation up to a year or more in advance. Then, pay as much or as little as you want until the final payment due date (usually 45 days prior to departure). In order to participate in the Vacation Layaway program, all travelers need to do is make an initial deposit to reserve their tour or cruise, and then make payments towards their trip as they see fit on an ongoing basis. Many travelers are pleasantly surprised to learn that they do not have to pay for their entire vacation up front. New customers and frequent travelers alike take advantage of the flexibility that this affords them. And there is the added bonus that subsequent payments are eligible to receive a 5% discount for payments made by check. Now is a great time to take advantage of the layaway program. The majority of Gate 1's 2014 European tours are now available for booking, having been released earlier than in previous years. Even more reason to reserve your space and start planning your next adventure now.
"One of the great things about buying your vacation on layaway is that you can lock in prices and the date you want to travel now and then make your payments toward your dream trip." - Marty Seslow, VP of Marketing

12 Day Ecuador & Galapagos Islands
Our trip was fantastic!! The guides were great, the management of the trip was superb, and every last detail was taken care of efficiently and in friendly manner.
The hotels were great and the schedule was well put together....enough time at each place, but not too much. Pato, our tour guide, was great. His enthusiasm for his home country was contagious, and his insight gave us a much better understanding of Ecuador than we otherwise would have had. Our guides on the Galapagos were fantastic. The naturalists shared so much information and they were so receptive to our questions.
