Let’s start a Better Trips revolution.

Together we can transform tourism into a global force for good.

The Problem

Tourism contributes 10% of the pollution driving the climate crisis.

And despite the fact that tourism & hospitality is a 9-trillion dollar industry and creates 1 in 10 jobs globally, fewer than 15% of profits typically stay in the economies of local communities, and workers in this sector are among the lowest paid and least protected in the world.

The more you learn, the grimmer it gets.

Consider for example, that in the last 30 years the number of international tourists has increased from X million to Y million and a growing 65% of these dream of experiencing wildlife and wild-places in far-off lands, yet in the same period, protected lands and wild habitats have shrunk globally by 40% and less than 2% of global philanthropy is dedicated to conservation. Double yikes.

But this can all change.

Demand better tourism practices — what you buy is what the industry will become.

The ANSWER

Fly less.

Traveling is a privilege. How you travel has the power to change the world.

Leave a lighter impact on people and the planet. Spend more time exploring closer to home, and when you do opt for a long-haul, buy from local experts who deliver higher quality experiences for you AND better impacts for the world.

Plan your trips with help from locals.

Local experts know what the guidebooks don’t. Trust them to guide you away from the cliche and point you towards experiences you could never imagine on your own. You’ll enjoy a better trip — one that’s tailored just for you and designed around the principals you care about.

Buy what you believe in.

Vote with your wallet. Ensure your travel — and your travel dollars — truly support local economies while protecting and respecting local culture, wildlife, and wild places.
Demand better tourism practices — what you buy is what the industry will become.

1% of travel agencies in the world carry a credible sustainability certification. Earning a certification is not easy; so you can be confident that the agencies that have actually done the work to get certified are truly at the vanguard of what it means to deliver tourism responsibly. Showing support for today’s certified agencies is an important first step in raising standards across the tourism industry. Trips sold by certified agencies produce more than 5x more profit for local economies and these agencies also meet high quality standards in terms of customer service.

Look for “Eco-Certified” agencies to reward small business that have gone the extra mile to prove they care for their people and the planet.

“Aucun guide au monde ne vaut l’expertise locale d’une agence à destination. Elles seules sauront faire un pas de côté, vous surprendre, vous mettre nez à nez avec l’inattendu.”

Rejoignez le mouvement Better Trips.

Notre objectif : faire du tourisme un mouvement global au service du bien, du bon, du beau. L’image de l’industrie du voyage est à juste titre désastreuse : changement climatique, esclavage moderne, exploitation des ressources écologiques, appropriation culturelle, privation des droits des populations locales. Plus l’on creuse et plus le tableau s’assombrit. Tout cela doit changer !

Le voyage de demain sera une réponse, et plus jamais un problème.

Notre feuille de route pour 2025 :

  • Inciter vingt fois plus de voyageurs et voyageuse à réserver auprès d’agences certifiées ou labellisées.
  • Aider 100 agences locales à obtenir des certifications reconnues en matière de développement durable.
  • Favoriser le leadership féminin en intégrant 200 agences dirigées par des femmes
  • Planter un million de palétuviers dans les zones côtières à risque.
  • Réduire de 500 000 tonnes les émissions mondiales de gaz à effet de serre.
  • Retirer 25 millions de bouteilles en plastique de nos océans.
