What happens when I join The Traveler Site?
By joining The Traveler Site you’ll be creating an account on our membership platform, the place where all the travel booking magic happens: members.TheTravelerSite.com or (org)members.TheTravelerSite.com. From here you can book your hotels, car rentals, cruises and activities receiving better-than-web pricing and Reward Credits on all with a % going back to your designated cause. You can also bid on exclusive resort inventory and receive Reward Credits (pay what you want, no give-back).
How can you provide such amazing deals and perks?
By cutting out the middleman, our proprietary booking technology – powered by SaveOnResorts – receives wholesale rates straight from the source and serves them straight to our members. This is similar to how the giant membership retailers operate, except with The Traveler Site your membership is free because you’re smart and awesome – smart enough to demand the best available pricing on travel and awesome enough to give back to great causes while traveling.
How do I know I’m receiving a deal?
When searching for any of your travel needs you’ll see the savings. If you want to double check, please be our guest. Open a browser window and access any public travel site and compare prices. Importantly with hotels, The Traveler Site delivers the final price; other sites are pre-tax. Make sure to go through the checkout process on those sites to accurately compare. Reminder: With marketplace bidding you pay what you want but there’s no give-back.
