As a traveller, you have the ability to be part of a global movement where your journey around this great planet of ours can transform not only you, but also the people and places of the destinations you visit.
We are proud to be launching an incredible range of travel experiences that help your next trip really make a positive difference to the local people and communities. These tours are part of the Flight Centre Travel Group’s UN commitment to deliver responsible travel.
Our initial range is located in Asia where we have:
- Conscious Cambodia
- Go Beyond in Bali
- Valued Vietnam
- Thoughtful Thailand
These trips are available to book through Universal Traveller at the World Travel Expo.
The Worldwise Mindful Trips include only ethical, educational and sustainable animal interactions plus the accommodation and transport providers have been selected because they prioritise sustainable and ethical practices. Each trip also includes a list of recommended visits to local social enterprise businesses/restaurants/day trips, all of which give you a chance to give back and enrich the local community – like doing a cooking class as part of a program to help keep kids off the street; or helping out at an elephant rehabilitation centre; or working with rescued animals to get them socialised for adoption.
To further enhance your opportunity to give back, all of our Mindful Tours include the donation of an environmentally friendly Solarbuddy solar light to change a child’s life. Flight Centre Travel Group has joined forces with SolarBuddy and our current goal in Australia is to gift 42,000 lights to children living in energy poverty in Vanuatu. YOU now have the power to be part of this transformation by adding a $25 light donation to your booking. Please ask your consultant how!
Through our partnership with IIPT - International Institute for Peace through Tourism - we encourage our customers to travel with an open mind and heart. Please visit www.peacetourism.
