comprehensive online and phone travel purchasing options for AARP’s
membership base that in 2003 alone booked more than $1 billion in
travel. Currently, AARP members deal directly with multiple travel
suppliers to claim membership discounts; this new arrangement gives
AARP members one-stop shopping for discounted travel. This benefits
AARP members as Travelocity leverages its large volume of travel
transactions to provide better discounts and lower prices than
previously available to AARP members.

“AARP members have come to value travel benefits offered through
AARP Services, Inc. (ASI),” said Dawn Sweeney, President, ASI. “We
strive to provide products and services that our members value, and we
believe this agreement with Travelocity will help us to reach that
goal. Travelocity has thousands of travel suppliers worldwide through
the Sabre Global Distribution System, and they enjoy a strong
reputation with extensive relationships throughout the travel
industry. We believe tapping into these relationships will allow us to
offer our members an unmatched level of products, services and pricing
for destinations worldwide.”

The addition of AARP Passport to the Travelocity Partner Network
continues the expansion of Travelocity’s distribution reach.
Currently, Travelocity Partner Network has agreements in place with
several leading online retailers, including: Southwest Airlines, US
Airways, America Online and Yahoo! Additionally, Travelocity continues
to leverage subsidiary Site59’s experience as an Application Service
Provider (ASP) for a number of travel-related Web sites.

“Through this agreement, we are now able to more effectively reach
an underserved, yet very important, growing segment in the
marketplace,” said Harris. “Our agreement with AARP will strengthen
Travelocity’s ability to reach key customer segments and provide
top-of-the-line travel products while expanding the reach of our
supplier partners.”

Launch date of AARP Passport from Travelocity has been tentatively
set for spring 2005.
