DALLAS, May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Traxo (www.traxo.com), the home base for travel, adds another tool to simplify travel: Traxo Loyalty Tracker keeps track of airline, hotel, and car reward balances, synching all loyalty program miles and points on one centralized dashboard. It is the first to display all miles and points balances alongside the traveler's entire trip itinerary on one consolidated travel home base. A traveler's miles and points from all their accounts get automatically loaded onto Traxo so users see balances, program status levels, recent transactions and the date when miles and points are about to expire. Last year over 150,000 travelers had approximately 1.5 billion frequent flyer miles expire due to inactivity (equivalent to over 55,000 cross-country trips), according to InsideFlyer Magazine. Traxo's Loyalty Tracker helps prevent travelers from losing miles by always displaying up-to-date loyalty account information and proactively notifying members before miles expire. It works seamlessly with the existing Traxo travel dashboard and is free for Traxo members.
The introduction of Traxo Loyalty Tracker also comes with a "Win Trips for Lost Miles" sweepstakes, where Traxo will award a total of ten $500 gift cards over the course of ten weeks. Users can choose between American Airlines or Travelocity Hotel gift cards. Enter by signing up for the free Traxo Loyalty Tracker service (at http://www.traxo.com/web/sweepstakes), and receive an additional entry for each new or existing Traxo member who becomes your Traxo buddy. Once every two weeks for ten weeks beginning June 2, 2010, Traxo will award a randomly selected winner a $500 travel gift card, with one grand prize winner being chosen to receive five travel gift cards on August 10, 2010.
"We're thrilled to add this free Loyalty Tracker functionality to Traxo -- it's a highly requested feature that will help our users track all of their loyalty miles and points on one page, provide them with key information as they book their next trip and help them save money by enabling them to see and use their balances before they expire," said Andres Fabris, co-founder and CEO of Traxo.
"The three most powerful words for travelers today are: simplify, simplify, simplify. Intelligent travel simplicity is exactly what Traxo delivers," said Randy Petersen, founder of InsideFlyer Magazine and FlyerTalk.com. "The use of the Traxo Loyalty Tracker will help prevent frequent flyer miles from expiring," Petersen continued.
