Everyone plays a part in improving lives and protecting destinations

Travel Better

Leave the World a Better Place™

One of the most remarkable aspects of travel is that each new adventure represents an opportunity to positively impact the people and environments in the destinations we visit. Sustainable Travel International is on a mission to make the world a better place through travel and tourism, but we are just one part of the big picture. We also need conscientious travelers – like YOU – to join the movement and spread the word!

We realize that it can sometimes be difficult to know what the best travel choices are or understand how you can make a difference. That’s why we’ve set out to help you by creating the Travel Better Club, a community of passionate globetrotters, curious culture seekers, and bold adventurers all committed to making a difference by traveling better!

The Travel Better Club will help you get started on your journey to becoming a more sustainable traveler by providing you with access to a 30-minute online training course, as well as ongoing resources and tips to help you continue to travel better. You’ll also receive exclusive travel benefits and can join our member-only Facebook group to share sustainable travel experiences, exchange tips for better travel, and get inspired! Together, we can use tourism to combat some of the planet’s greatest environmental, economic, and socio-cultural threats.
