Reviews for Travelers Aid Society Of San Diego Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer for Traveler's Aid by working at San Diego International Airport every Saturday night. I am one of 350+ volunteers. Every 4 hour shift I help about 75-100 travelers who need guidance or assistance or sometimes just a friendly place to vent their frustrations from a day of travel. It is a wonderful group of people to work with. I have been doing it for about 4 years and wouldn't change a thing! We work closely with the Harbor Police, the various airlines, hotels, transportation companies, and others. Interested in helping? Contact them!!
