How it works
Whether you love to travel or have to travel for work, start the journey at TravelGiver.
TravelGiver is a one-stop-travel-shop for socially conscious travellers, allowing them to donate up to eight per cent of their booking to community projects worldwide at no extra cost. Users simply log on, choose a booking agent and select from one of hundreds of ethical grass roots initiatives worldwide that assist communities in need. The donation is then made automatically.
Travellers can book with all their favourite travel partners and set up a preferred community project from more than 300 worldwide to give to, making giving quick and easy every time. Booking partners include major travel brands Contiki, Booking.com, Intrepid Travel, Hertz, Expedia, Lonely Planet, Zuji, Best Western and Accor, giving users access to not just flights and accommodation, but also cruises, packages, car rental and travel insurance all over the world.
Since its launch in August 2013, TravelGiver has helped hundreds of travellers book anything from local flights to international holidays and has expanded from 40 projects in 4 countries to over 300 in 50 countries, giving travellers a greater choice of where their money goes. The site has also become a platform for travellers to share experiences and find projects to visit when overseas.
TravelGiver has been designed so that travellers like yourself, can research community projects (ethical grass root initiatives set up by non-governmental organisations to assist communities) on one website, share your experiences, make travel bookings and give much needed funds to the projects of your choice.
TravelGiver is aimed at people who want to make a difference and give while they travel. Whether this is when they book their next trip away or experiencing first-hand the life changing work that is being done at a grass root level, all travellers can make a difference.
TravelGiver is a philanthropic organisation that helps communities in need. This website is for socially conscious travellers who are time poor, value reviews by like-minded peers and for those who may not have the spare funds to give to others. This is a very easy way to give while you travel and provides a true 'guilt-free' travel experience.
