Our Story

Why Give Back?

It's not about saving the world. It's about changing the way we live in the world." -Richard Branson

The heart that loves travel is the heart that can do good things for the whole community – people, animals, and the environment. And that's why we created Kind Traveler, the first 'Give + Get' hotel booking platform that transforms travelers into a financial force for good. Travelers 'give' to a local or global charity, as reward for their donation, they 'get' an exclusive rate to book directly with the world’s best hotels and unique properties. It feels good to #TravelKindly. 

Kind Traveler IS a warrior for good, a shift in mindset, an idea with the power to evolve into a growing global movement fueled by every day people like you who love to travel, by charities that dedicate themselves to creating a better place to live, and by hotels and travel properties that believe they have a responsibility to the communities where they do business.

WITH HELP FROM HOTELS WE EMPOWER
TRAVELERS TO BECOME:


OUR CORE VALUES

Last year alone more than 1 billion trips were taken. That's 1 billion opportunities to transform travelers into a force for good. Kind Traveler's goals are purposefully aligned with the United Nations' Global Goals for sustainable development: preventing poverty and hunger, protecting the planet, and promoting wellbeing for individuals and animals. 

WELLBEING

Our belief is that the kinder you are to yourself, the better you will be. So we encourage travelers, as well as our partners, to support wellness, mindfulness and healthy lifestyles whenever they can.

LOCAL & GLOBAL COMMUNITIES

Kindness is better when shared. Our Give + Get platform creates a sustainable fundraising model where travelers who give back, get something (kind) in return. 100% of donations go to global or local charities that benefit communities, the environment, and animal welfare.

TRANSPARENCY

We’re committed to transparency in what we do. That is why 100% of donations are always given to our local and global charities.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

We practice and advance choices that support clean air, clean water, resource conservation, and a reduced carbon footprint. We highlight and engage individuals, companies and organizations creating kinder and more sustainable standards in travel.

HUMANE CHOICES

We practice and promote choices that support cruelty-free lifestyles and the humane treatment of animals. We do not believe in animals being used for entertainment or testing.

ECONOMIC GROWTH

Our hotel members are cornerstones of their communities — driving tourism and job creation. By pointing travelers directly to our hotel members, we’re able to support local communities.

WIN-WIN PARTNERSHIPS

We create ongoing win-win partnerships with our travel and nonprofit partners. We believe in fairness, innovation, and honest communications.

SMART GIVING

We guide intelligent giving decisions by advancing transparency of top performing charities. All of our global charities are top performing, and have at least a 3 or 4 star rating on Charity Navigator and at lesat a Silver rating on GuideStar.

HUMAN RIGHTS

We respect and advance diversity and universal human rights. We denounce prejudice and inspire dignity.

 

 

EDUCATION

Through education of today’s most pivotal societal concerns, we seek to inspire conscious decision-making that keeps the greater good in mind.
