It's just what you wanted – receive the gift of travel with a gift registry

It's easy for recipients to create and easy for gift-givers to use. Simply sign up at and create your registry. You'll then be allowed to create and send announcements to several friends and family members, which will include instructions on how they can make deposits into your TravelBank. You can use the money in your TravelBank to purchase airfare on United.

It's the perfect gift for any occasion, including holidays, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and graduations.

We're sorry, our gift registry page is currently unavailable for maintenance. You can still use the funds from your gift registry to book travel during this time, but you will not be able to receive contributions or update your registry details.
