Protecting the environment and the people and places we visit is a top priority for Trafalgar.
To show our commitment we have set up The Leading Travel Companies Conservation Foundation, a non profit organization that will invest in supporting long term sustainable tourism. Our group of companies is contributing US$1 million per year to fund much needed conservation, community and sustainable tourism projects that will create a better world for future generations to enjoy.
What can you do? An easy way to make a difference is to ‘carbon neutralize’ your travel. Trafalgar has partnered with Sustainable Travel International TM, allowing you the option to calculate the carbon footprint of your travel and contribute towards projects that will reduce the C02 emissions. You may choose to offset your flight, coach travel or the energy consumed staying in your hotel accommodation.

What Else Can You Do?
When you have finished with your vacation brochures, pass them onto a friend or recycle them
Minimize waste by bringing your own water bottle and reusing it
Buy local produce (which reduces air miles incurred in transporting the food for final preparation)
Please don’t pick plants and flowers, leave them for others to enjoy
At your hotel use water sparingly, take short showers instead of baths and hang towels for drying and reuse
Separate paper from plastic and try to recycle as much as possible
Throw any litter in the bin and keep the local environment tidy
Switch lights off & air conditioning off if you are not in the room or don’t need them
Turn off your TV instead of leaving it on standby
Leave as much packaging at home from goods you buy for your trip and recycle as much of this as possible
