It's Pride Month, and as we've been reporting, The Points Guy is raising money for several charities that are dear to our hearts including Rainbow Railroad and Miles4Migrants to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community.

But there are also lots of deals out there in the travel world that you may be able to benefit from!

Here are a few to get you in the mood to celebrate Pride Month.

Alaska Airlines has been a big booster of the LGBTQIA+ community. They've got a plane decked out in Pride livery, and they've also got a Pride Month sale on right now. You can find fares as low as $49 one-way.

You can fly from New York to San Francisco or Seattle for $139 each way. Bozeman, Montana, to Los Angeles is just $79. Fly Dallas to Seattle for just $109. Those are just a few examples. You can find more at AlaskaAirlines.com.

The online retail giant Amazon is offering lots of deals in honor of Pride Month. Find Pride merchandise from brands from Adidas to Disney, and Reebok to Speedo.

Disney, for example, is selling lots of fun Pride merchandise. For the best deals, wait until after Pride Month to scoop up some markdowns and save your gear for next Pride Month.

For even more charitable giving, check out Amazon Smile. It's a separate Amazon shopping website that gives a portion of the proceeds from all your Amazon purchases to the charity of your choice. I give to God's Love We Deliver, founded to provide food delivery to those sick with AIDS. It now helps a range of sick or elderly people with fresh meals delivered straight to their homes.

Hyatt is a Platinum sponsor of NYC Pride 2021. The hotel chain is inviting guests to celebrate Pride with special offers from New York and Los Angeles to Amsterdam and beyond.

They also gave us a list of some of the events they are hosting. Check it out below:

  • Gild Hall, A Thompson Hotel will kick off New York City Pride festivities on June 25 with a happy hour from 4-9 p.m. for World of Hyatt elite members and Hyatt Sales Force VIPs to nosh on food and drinks while enjoying music and drag queen performances. A silent auction will also be held to benefit The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization focused on suicide prevention efforts for the LGBTQIA+ community.
  • The Beekman, A Thompson Hotel in New York will host an exclusive party at its Temple Court rooftop, welcoming World of Hyatt elite members and Hyatt Sales Force VIPs to enjoy a brunch viewing party of the virtual Pride March on June 27 between noon and 4 p.m., complete with delicious bites and drinks.

  • Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong has curated several Pride-inspired experiences, including "Centric Pride" goody bags, a rainbow wall installation for the perfect backdrop to capture the best moments, a "spin the rainbow wheel" at the Cruise rooftop restaurant and bar and a Pride-inspired cake at The Farmhouse. Guests can also enjoy Chow Ciao Chow’s mini art exhibition, which experiments with painting faces using different colors for different personalities.

Kimpton Hotels

Kimpton Hotels (part of IHG) has been a longtime ally of the gay and lesbian community (in fact, they've been key allies since 1981!).

Kimpton says, "Since our founding in San Francisco over three decades ago, in 1981, we’ve embraced the LGBTQ community and have made a commitment to helping affect positive change by partnering with organizations that can make a difference; like The Trevor Project."

And it's not just for Pride Month — Kimpton donates $10 per night to The Trevor Project year-round, and you get 15% off their Best Flexible Rate. Use this link to book.

Orbitz

At the online travel agency Orbitz, you can search for a LGBTQIA-welcoming hotel at Orbitz.com/Pride.

Unfortunately, a deal to get $50 back in Orbucks for booking on that channel is over, but it met with a good response from folks on social media. Be sure to follow Orbitz to get in on any deals for next year's Pride.
