TripItA® Gives Wings To Children's Wishes This Holiday Season By Partnering With Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  TripIt, the all-in-one travel organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), today announced a holiday partnership with Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area* that will bestow the gift of travel to deserving children, with the help of the travel community.

How TripIt Is Giving Back

Grady is a 10-year-old boy with aplastic anemia whose wish to go to Walt Disney World ® kept his spirits high through a rigorous treatment program. TripIt has committed to making Grady's wish come true, and will help send Grady to Disney World in April 2014. Grady says he can't wait to "meet the Disney characters and ride the rides," and the whole family is looking forward to taking this long-awaited trip together.

"More than 70 percent of all wishes we grant involve travel, so we do a lot of travel planning ourselves," said Patricia Wilson, executive director at Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. "TripIt helps our staff and our wish families keep travel plans organized, and now helps us make even more wish trips a reality."

How Individuals Can Give Back

Travelers everywhere can donate frequent flyer miles for certain airlines to Make-A-Wish through TripIt's mileage drive at tripit.com/gift. Instead of letting airline points collect dust or even expire completely, travelers can donate their miles to Make-A-Wish to make children's wishes come true.

"TripIt has always been by the traveler, for the traveler – a motto being paid forward during the season of giving back," said Barry Padgett, executive vice president of TripIt and Concur Traveler Services. "By donating any fraction of your mileage, you help us give the gift of travel to exceptionally deserving kids and families, and empower Make-A-Wish to make more dream trips come true."

Travelers can also pay it forward by giving the gift of stress-free travel to someone in their life. TripIt Pro ( $49/year) provides cancellation and delay alerts, gate change notifications, check-in reminders, fare tracking, seat tracking and more. To track mileage accruals and expirations, TripIt Pro's Point Tracker helps users keep atop their loyalty program status. It's an ideal gift for road warriors, jetsetters, vacation planners and travel lovers on every list. To learn more or start giving, visit tripit.com/gift.
