Fundraising ideas

fundraising page

We make it easy for travellers to raise funds for their trip by providing an online fundraising page that they can share with others. Those who decide to contribute can make secure online payments that are applied directly to your tour balance. Travellers can find this page by logging into their account and choosing the “Payments” tab.


We’re working with FlipGive to provide a new way to raise funds for your tour. Earn cash on things you’re already buying, and get paid whenever you shop, dine, or book hotels or activities. Invite your friends and family to help contribute—the program is free to use! Visit our FlipGive page to sign up and start growing your fund. Need help? Contact one of FlipGive’s coaches via their online chat or book an appointment.

There are many other ways to fundraise for your tour. Groups can find inspiration and tips on our fundraising guide.
