Cheap Tickets has teemed up with United Way to do good for the communities that a traveler will be visiting by volunteering a portion or all of their vacation time to help out those in need.
Cheap Tickets has also provided an online link where donations to United Way can be made directly and where volunteer opportunities can be accessed. A volunteer travel blog and a search tool for volunteer opportunities and events are posted on their site. They also offer a Volunteer Savings Program, where groups traveling for a volunteer vacation can get discounts.
United Way's website, has posted that CheapTickets will donate a minimum of $6 to United Way of America for each trip booked using their link.
My only complaint is that I could not find the link to this program on the Cheap Tickets main site. I had to type, "volunteer vacations" in the search field box to get all of this information. or click on volunteer vacations on the travel blog for a year old post about spring break volunteer vacations.
