We’re Travelers United, the only 501C3, non-profit organization that represents all travelers. Based in Washington, DC, we work tirelessly with the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, Congress, other travel regulators, and travel stakeholders, Travelers United testifies regularly before Senate and House committees and discusses consumer issues with travel associations that represent all modes of travel.

Government, travel providers, consumers, and travel agents all form a web of travel rules and regulations. These rules and regulations are not set arbitrarily but are created through a deliberative process — a process where Travelers United provides a strong consumer voice. We are part of the process.

Our administration offices are in Arlington, VA, and legal offices are in Washington, DC.
The admin office address is Travelers United, PO Box 9934, Arlingon, VA 22219.
Our Legal Office is at Travelers United, 2833 Alabama Ave SE #30736, Washington, DC, 20020.

Our efforts are focused in three main areas:

Advocacy – representing the voice of the consumer in DC and around the country.

Education – create consumer awareness of current issues; pending decisions, rules and regulations; consumer rights as well as opportunities for action

Research –  determine the consumer impact of internal government debates regarding travel by surveying and polling our membership as well as members of the general public, along with partnering with research organizations and leading industry analysts.

Great travel experiences start long before passengers board airplanes, buses and trains. They start long before travelers pick up their first guidebook and start making hotel reservations. Wonderful travel experiences are a combination of a travel and tourism infrastructure that works and has clear, understandable rules and good customer service, together with travelers who are savvy enough to avoid potential problems during journeys.

Only Travelers United has the information, insights and influence you need to smooth the bumps in the road.
