Hotels.com Gives Customers a Flexible Payment Option

Hotels.com
has launched a new initiative which will allow customers to book now
and pay later with the Bill Me Later(R) program. This powerful payment
choice enables travelers booking hotels or vacation rentals worldwide on
Hotels.com to defer payment for 90 days - until May 2005 when booking by
January 31st and until June 2005 for bookings made by February 28th.

“Whether you’re planning Spring Break to Hawaii, Florida, or the
Caribbean, or a last minute romantic getaway to Las Vegas or New York, the
Bill Me Later program allows customers to enjoy the trip now and pay for
it later,” said Cheryl Rosner, president of Hotels.com. “Booking with
Hotels.com is about ease, convenience and security, and that extends to
this flexible payment option we are offering our customers.”

Qualified travelers who choose the Bill Me Later payment option for
reservations of $450 or more can defer payment without interest charges
until June 2005 on bookings made by February 28th. All customers need to
do is simply select the Bill Me Later payment option when making their
reservation at http://www.hotels.com/
, or by calling 1-800-2-HOTELS. To
qualify for a Bill Me Later account, customers are not required to
complete a lengthy credit application. Credit restrictions do apply. Bill
Me Later offers a “zero fraud liability” protection which means customers
are not responsible for unauthorized charges.
