Travel for change

Make a huge difference to someone’s life with a micro donation.

What is Travel for change?

We believe life is better when you take more holidays. We also believe that as frequent holiday makers, you can give a little back to the communities to which you travel. Through Travel for change we've partnered with The Footprints Network to enable our travellers to contribute a micro donation to a cause they care about. Collectively, we can make a HUGE difference to communities around the world, giving back to the places we visit.
