I'm not sure where to find a service like this outside of physically going to a travel agent.

You mean like a credit card?? I haven't ever heard of layaway for travel.

Some banks or credit unions offer a travel club account that works like a Christmas club account. You would put a specific amount every week into the account and at the end you would have money to buy travel. However, you are looking at something at least a year away. If your travel is far into the future or if you do this every week starting with next year's trip, that may work, but you can't plan that long distance trip at the last minute and expect to find bargain rates on air, cruises, or rental cars.

LivinginSC suggested a credit card, but that will incur high interest rates thereby taking the "bargain" out of bargain travel. If you can find a card offering a 0% rate for the next year or 18 months AND if you are very good about paying it off before the interest free period is over, that could be a possible solution.

You aren't ready to travel if you are planning on making installments on the trip. Save up the $$ and then book your trip.
