The Road Less Traveled

What I know for sure, is we are all itching to travel again.  Whether you want to go on a road trip, a weekend getaway or grand tour your travel experience has a different set of rules now. Think of us as the human element in your travel experience: We’ll inspire your next choice. We also recommend travel partners to make your trip easier. But wait, there’s more.

We’re influencers in the world of Travel and Sustainability

Our guest expert on Climate Change, Mr. Alex Verbeek, as our Director of Sustainability and Planet Culture is a new voice in the travel industry. He joins us in the New Year as an expert, speaker, writer and changemaker recently voted among the top climate influencers worldwide. Read his New Year’s Post in our magazine on his recent travel experiences in the Netherlands. How we can do our part individually or collectively at this critical turning point? We will explore that question and more.

Where you choose to travel leaves a footprint with real world consequences for the local economy, cultures and communities. You can see our list of NGO’s right here. You can give back through our Travel Club to the people and local community when you travel by contributing to our many local donation programs. Quite simply, we will reward you with special gifts when you donate to our causes.
