Full-fare advertising. Increased compensation when denied boarding. Increased compensation for lost luggage. 24-hour allowance for changing an airline reservation. Travelers United  has been instrumental in all these rulings…and many more! We want to continue to advocate on your behalf. But we need your support. Please consider joining the only nonprofit, membership organization in DC that represents ALL types of travelers (by air, by car, by rail, hotel guests, etc.). Together we can make travel better.
