Gift A Trip is an e-commerce platform selling a portfolio of fully turnkey prepaid travel gift certificates direct-to-consumer from the most popular travel brands. Certificates come in a variety of lengths of stay, price points and destination options. All certificates are redeemed directly through the resort, hotel or cruise line with minimal blackout dates, the ability to upgrade and most have no expiration date. This gives the certificate recipient unparalleled freedom of choice and flexibility, making these certificates the most simple, flexible and hassle-free travel certificates on the market today.
Our cruise, hotel and resort partners determine their certificate prices based on an average rate over the entire year, with minimal blackout dates (several brands also offer discounted certificates with “low season” rates and more limited travel dates). Certificate rates include all taxes, fees, and gratuities, so there are no surprises at the beginning or end of your vacation with any hidden fees.
Unless specified they do not, giving you the freedom to choose the airline, schedule and class of your choice. Or use those airline points you’ve been saving!
For corporate orders, we do have the ability to provide air vouchers (available in any dollar denomination). Vouchers are valid for 3 years from date of issue, valid on any major airline and are redeemed through our dedicated air partner’s web portal. Contact us directly for more information.

There is no limit to the number of certificates you can purchase, however, we do encourage you to email or contact us via phone for any orders exceeding 10 certificates.

Redeeming Your Certificate And Booking Your Vacation
Yes! Just call the resort, hotel or cruise line directly, and they’ll advise you of any additional fees to bring the children.
No, but most are transferrable (can be regifted)! Each certificate has its own unique terms and conditions (set by the resorts and cruise lines), so be sure to note which will allow you this option. Certificates cannot be resold for cash.
The Flex Trip Collection
Purchasing a Flex Trip Collection means you have chosen to give the recipient the option to select from ANY vacation option available within the Flex Trip Collection Level purchased. This is perfect if you’re unsure which vacation they’d enjoy the most, or if you wish to simply offer them the maximum number of vacation options within a certain budget.
After you’ve chosen your delivery preference and check-out, we’ll send YOU (the purchaser) the digital Flex Trip Collection confirmation within 24 hours, which you’ll in turn forward on to the recipient. It provides full details of the certificate options available from which they can choose, and next steps. As the purchaser, after you forward them the Flex Trip Collection confirmation, there’s nothing more for you to do. It’s then up to them to decide which vacation they prefer, and let us know directly (via email) so we have a record of their selection. We’ll take it from there!
IMPORTANT: Flex Trip Collection gifts expire if no selection has been made after the expiration date noted on the certificate. Meaning, if the recipient has not provided us with their selection within the specified time frame, the Flex Trip Collection expires, becomes null and void, and non-refundable. When they do make their selection within the time-frame specified however, the redeemable certificate issued by the cruise line, hotel or resort is valid for a minimum of 2 years (but most don’t expire at all).
