Practicing Responsible Travel

A Different Way to Travel that Makes a Difference

Travel has many benefits. It is fun, adventurous, and full of self-discovery, but it also has the unique strategic advantage of merging cultures and economies for mutual prosperity. By traveling with GIVE, you are actively supporting the ideology that international travel, when facilitated consciously and responsibly, can have profoundly positive impacts on the communities we visit, the wilderness we explore, and the people who participate.

This ideology resonates throughout all aspects and types of travel we offer, from our volunteer programs to our Responsible Travel Experiences. By choosing to collaborate with ethical companies, organizations and community partners, GIVE is promoting a paradigm shift across the entire tourism industry. A shift towards best practices that are environmentally conscious, economically fair and socially responsible.

As a responsible traveler, you have the power to choose how your tourism dollars impact the people you meet and the places you explore. Vote with your dollar and choose to travel with purpose.
