Travel Tip: How You Can Use Crowdfunding for Your Travels
This is the way crowdfunding sites work: You post your call to action, and supporters can donate cash to your project—or, uh, plane ticket. You pay a certain percentage to the website.
Kickstarter.com only allows you to collect if you meet a pre-set goal, and charges five percent. On here, you’re more likely to see fundraising for a travel-related project, rather than a personal vacation.
GoFundMe.com is more flexible, meaning you can collect whatever money is donated, minus the fee.
Getting strangers to give can be a challenge but it can be a good way to keep a centralized place for family and friends to donate.
As for the etiquette of asking someone to fund your honeymoon? That’s up for debate. But I say it’s better than registering for a set of dishes you’ll never use.
