Led by The Duke of Sussex, Travalyst is a bold new global initiative founded by Booking.com, Skyscanner, Trip.com, TripAdvisor and Visa, with the ambition to change the impact of travel, for good.
We believe in the power and importance of travel and that we also have a shared responsibility to our planet and to each other.
That’s why we’re coming together as a catalyst for change.
We want to be the driving force that paves a new way to travel, helping everyone explore our world in a way that protects both people and places, and secures a positive future for destinations and local communities for generations to come.
The number of people around the world taking international trips has more than doubled since 2000, and is set to increase by the same number again by 2030*. As more and more people travel, so too increases the impact on the environment and local communities – and the opportunities to do good with each trip we take.
Since Travalyst’s launch, the impact of the global pandemic in 2020 has changed the world in innumerable ways. The travel and tourism industry now finds itself in a unique moment in time to address some of the greatest systemic challenges caused by the industry’s acceleration in recent years, and to take the opportunity to create a more sustainable future for destinations, communities, and travellers alike.

This is not just about the personal choices each traveller makes, it is about a major shift in the way the world travels. As Travalyst partners, we are making this a priority - and we want to encourage our peers, business partners, and customers to do so as well. How we get there, where we stay and what we do matters.
Together with The Duke of Sussex, our aim is to spark a movement of like-minded companies, organisations and changemakers to transform the future of travel into a more sustainable one that supports and protects destinations and local communities for decades to come.
We will use our influence to explore and promote initiatives worldwide that have the ability to preserve destinations, ensure that local communities thrive, and protect wildlife and environments through responsible practices.
