Get into debt the 1950's way! 'Only 21 monthly payements of £8 5s 7d' - that was more than a week's wage for most workers in Britain at the time. In 1955, as a child, I flew on my own with B.O.A.C to Burma where my father was working. It took 3 days and nights with a breakdown in Beruit for several hours and another in Karachi that meant an overnight stay in a hotel.
