Out of Options: What Happens if You’ve Run Out of Money to Fly Home?

Covai Post Network



It’s easy to get carried away when you are in holiday mode and you might find yourself in a situation where you have almost completely run out of cash but still need to finance the trip home.

You may have to think creatively in that sort of situation and there are options available that could help you gain access to the services you need to pay for without having to make immediate payment.

A temporary funds problem calls for a temporary solution

It is likely that you will have the money you need to pay for the rest of your trip in a short space of time and all you require is a way to get what you want straight away and repay the money in a couple of weeks at the most.

If you apply for easy credit online you can access a product that is termed as a digital credit product, which is a buy now, pay later scenario.

The fundamental difference with this product compared to some other options is that there is a fixed term of 14 days, which is when the payment is due.

That should give you ample time to complete your travel itinerary without any hassle and then settle the bill a couple of weeks after you return.

No hassle with documentation

If you are traveling you don’t want any hassle won’t interruptions to your plans and if you use a product like ePayLater you won’t have any documentation to fill out when you use the service to pay for something you need straight away.

Pay via your smartphone

Convenience and ease of use are key considerations if you are going to use a payment option like this and a key point is a fact that you only have to download an app on your phone and then visit the merchant of your choice.

Once you are ready to checkout you simply choose the ePayLater option and you will soon be enjoying 14 days of interest-free credit as soon as the transaction is approved.

Other options

What you want to avoid is incurring some additional costs for gaining access to a payment option, especially if you know you will have the funds shortly after you return from your holiday.

Another option would be to phone home and speak to a relative to see if they can transfer some money to you or wire out a payment that you can pick up at a local point.

This might work but it is not exactly straightforward as you will have to wait for the transaction to come through and will need to visit a bank or outlet to collect your cash, plus you probably don’t want to have to ask friends or relatives to help you out especially if there is another way of getting what you need.

Running out of money is easily done when you are away from home but at least you have some viable options to help you carry on with your plans that won’t add to your holiday costs and, just as importantly, you can get home without any fuss.
