Our Partner, BookDifferent, has been Nominated for the Sustainable Travel Award

During the Changes in Tourism event of Dutch ANVR, our partner, BookDifferent, was nominated for the Sustainable Travel Award 2018. They were nominated along with holiday travel websites like TUI and Vacanceselect.

Impact over Profit is a hotel booking site with a mission to make the tourism industry more sustainable. Their mission is to make travel more green and fair, and give tourism the opportunity to commit to a better and more sustainable world. BookDifferent is, like us, a social enterprise that places impact over profit. When showing accommodations, the BookDifferent website not only shows pricing but also how sustainable over one million of their listed accommodations actually are.
