Pay Monthly Scheme

Emperor’s new pay monthly plan

Emperor Divers has made it even easier to enjoy one of our amazing holidays by introducing an interest-free payment plan.

Anyone booking more than six months in advance of departure can spread the cost of their trip. All that is needed is a deposit and then we will do the rest. We’ll automatically collect each payment – meaning you don’t have to anything – until your balance is paid off 60 days before your holiday.

The offer is available on all our liveaboard destinations meaning you can spread the cost of trips to the Maldives, Indonesia and the Red Sea.

There are no added fees or charges and no credit checks are needed. It all means there’s no fuss, no hassle and, best of all, no one-off payments.

Just book your holiday at or email our always-helpful reservations team at [email protected], tell them you would like to pay in instalments and they will set everything up.

If, however, you can’t wait six months for your next trip why not have a look at our late deals and see if you can pick up a bargain that way.

What if I want to change or add extras to my booking?

If you would like to make changes or add extras to your booking after setting up the payment plan, you will be asked to pay any additional extras or balance remaining after your payment plan has finished and 60 days before the date of travel.
