Students and their parents can pay off gap year travel before leaving home.

So, your friends are off overseas again for the holidays, and you're staying home? Let us let you in on their secret...

Imagine paying for your entire holiday in interest-free instalments before travelling, thereby avoiding falling into the debt trap in order to travel? You can do just this with "lay-buy"  – or "FOMO" – travel!

Now, thanks to FOMO Travel, would-be travellers can secure their local or international dream holiday in a few simple steps online via Hippo.co.za, where you can plan and budget by locking-in early-bird deals up to 24 months in advance. The now-affordable rate is paid monthly up until you board the plane – with a heavy weight lifted off your shoulders!

Imagine paying for your entire holiday in interest-free instalments before travelling, thereby avoiding falling into the debt trap in order to travel?

It's also an ideal way to gift travel for destination weddings, honeymoons, and for students to pay gap-year travel off upfront.
