8 Travel Hacks To Turn Your 2022 Holiday Into A Charity Fundraiser

Giving yourself a break can allow you to give to others. These top tips show you how:

1. Booking the holiday itself

It’s a buyer’s market for travel in 2022 and incentives are everywhere. It’s a buyer’s market for travel in 2022 and incentives are everywhere. Give as You Live Online allows you to generate a free donation for a charity of your choice with most online purchases, including holidays, travel and hotels. They have 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 your airport parking early can be much cheaper and get you a great deal! The stress-free start to your trip can earn a charity donation, as can car hire while you’re away. These are sometimes big elements of a travel budget so make sure they don’t get forgotten.

3. Insurance and currency exchange

Another competitive area where it pays to shop around. We have you 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 you travel. Toiletries, those sunglasses you sat on, maybe it’s even time for new luggage! Bonus tip: Order sun cream etc from Boots, then click & collect instore AFTER security at the airport. Saves hold luggage weight and the shampoo can’t explode inside your case…

5. Destination research

A good travel guide pays for itself many times over, helping you discover hidden gems, where you can entertain yourself for free in a city you don’t know (plus how to avoid the inevitable taxi scam!)

Waterstones have a wide selection of Travel Guides for you to choose from, shop via Give as you Live Online and raise FREE donations for your charity!

6. Flex your travel

If you have the luxury of time or destination flexibility, it can make big savings in cost. Skyscanner has a couple of useful tools: An ‘everywhere’ flight search option to show the cheapest flights from your local airport, and a ‘month’ search option to show the cheapest day in your preferred month (it’ll probably be a Tuesday!)

7. Not a flyer? No problem

Holidays don’t have to involve flying. If you want to explore the UK by coach or train, or perhaps go Interrailing, you can fundraise via any means of travel.

With Give as you Live Online you can raise free donations when you book tickets for most methods of travel – and it won’t cost you a penny more!

8. Hotel, self-catering or hostel?

There are so many accommodation options that you can book for yourself online. Explore all possibilities, even budget hostels can be comfortable, with surprisingly good facilities.

Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com and many more comparison sites offer free donations for the charity of your choice when you use Give as you Live Online. You can also generate free donations when you book direct with many of your favourite hotel chains!

Fundraising doesn’t need to be extraordinary. Just give as you live your ordinary life.
