8 Travel Hacks To Turn A Supporter's 2024 Holiday Into A Charity Fundraiser

Your supporters don’t have to go out of their way to help you raise vital funds this year. Simply taking a break will enable them to give back with Give as you Live Online.

1. Booking the holiday itself

It’s a buyer’s market for travel in 2024 and incentives are everywhere. Give as you Live Online allows supporters to generate a free donation for your charity with most online purchases, including holidays, travel and hotels. There's a wide range of major travel companies and airlines offering free donations, including Booking.com, Tui, British Airways and hundreds more.


2. Car hire/airport parking

Booking airport parking early can be much cheaper and allows for a great deal!  The stress-free start to your supporter's trip can earn a charity donation, as can car hire while they're away. These are sometimes big elements of a travel budget so can generate a great donation!


3. Insurance and currency exchange

Another competitive area where it pays to shop around. We have your supporters covered with a range of providers for both the all-important spending money and essential insurance.


4. Travel shopping

There’s always something to re-stock before the travel starts. Toiletries, sunglasses, maybe it’s even time to get new luggage! Well, your supporters can start quickly racking up the donations for your charity when the shop for travel essentials commences!


5. Destination research

A good travel guide pays for itself many times over.

Your supporters can shop a wide selection at Waterstones and raise FREE donations for your charity by using Give as you Live Online.


6. Flex your travel

For those who have the luxury of time or destination flexibility, it can result in big savings. Skyscanner has a couple of useful tools and they’ll pay a small donation for every search your supporters make.


7. Not a flyer? No problem

Holidays don’t have to involve flying. For those wanting to explore the UK by coach or train, or perhaps go Interrailing, supporters can fundraise via any means of travel.

With Give as you Live Online, free donations will be raised when supporters book tickets for most methods of travel – and it won’t cost you or them a penny more!


8. Hotel, self-catering or hostel?

There are so many accommodation options that are available to book online. Your supporters can explore all possibilities, even budget hostels to find a perfect match for them - all while raising a lovely donation for you!

Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com and many more comparison sites offer free donations for your charity when supporters use Give as you Live Online. Free donations can also be generated when booking directly with many of their favourite hotel chains!
