Sep 6, 2018

Bellevue, Washington, 6 September 2018

2018 marks the 10th anniversary AARP members have access to travel technology from Expedia Group. Members enjoy the ability to book hotels, flights, vacation packages, cruises, car rentals and activities through one convenient portal: the AARP Travel Center Powered by Expedia.

Found at www.expedia-aarp.com, this robust travel technology platform enables AARP members to save 10% at select hotels worldwide, up to 30% off car rentals, and up to a $300 onboard cruise credit on select cruises. In addition, AARP members never pay booking fees, either online or by phone.

Since its launch in 2008, AARP members have saved more than $30 million dollars on their travel to top destinations for weekend getaways, family vacations and bucket-list trips of a lifetime.

“AARP members consistently point to travel as their top aspiration and are always looking for savings on quality offerings that meet their needs and our high standards,” said Victoria Borton, Vice President, Lifestyle, of AARP Services Inc. “For ten years, we have been pleased with the savings and convenience that the AARP Travel Center Powered by Expedia offers our members, and how it allows them to fulfill their travel dreams.”

“We’re thrilled to be celebrating the anniversary of the AARP Travel Center,” says Ariane Gorin, President of Expedia Partner Solutions. “At Expedia Group we are the world’s travel platform, and we extend our platform to partners so they can leverage its power for their travelers.  We look forward to offering AARP members the ability to create even more travel memories. The next 10 years look bright.”
