Trip "gift" registry service
Triple M Tours offers a no-charge registry service, much like a bridal registry. Once you register for a tour, give us a call and we can setup a "Trip Registry" for you. You can then give the link to your friends and family. This way, rather than giving gifts for birthday, Christmas or other occasions, they can contribute to your trip fund instead. They are free to contribute any amount they like, and we will keep track of it for you. It's all done through PayPal but they don't need an account to use it. Every two weeks, we'll send you a list of who has contributed to your registry so that you can send out Thank-You notes.
