|Why should you be listed||
Fairaway is a fair and social responsible travel platform. We offer 100 % tailor-made trips, which are basedon the principles of sustainability and social responsibility. Fairaway connects travelers with travel professionals in Asia, Africa and Latin-America. The travel experts are Europeans who have been living in the destination for various years or locals. Each trip is 100% tailor made and therefore unique. At Fairaway travelling is not about ticking off a long list of attractions. With Fairaway you travel to special places off the beaten path and you stay in small scale accommodations. There is a strong focus on personal contact with the locals. We believe that travelling makes the world even more beautiful – based on the fact that people and environment are treated with respect. Our mission is: Better places to live in, and better places to travel. In this way travelers will have an authentic experience and the local people benefit from the income of the visit.
We have a very personal approach. We work closely together with our local experts, most of them we have known for many years. These are people who know their country very well and have a great passion for travel. They share our philosophy for responsible travel. We stimulate our clients to get in direct contact with locals, to meet farmers, artists and to travel to places off the beaten path. We want to stimulate our travelers to get out of their comfort zone during their holiday and really experience the country. This can be done by staying one night at a local family or by a special encounter with a local coffee farmer who is proud to share stories about his country.
Our approach is to increase responsible and sustainable tourism. All our travel experts are working according to the guidelines of Travelife, a certificate for sustainability. In this way we can make sure that the itinerary, the accommodations and the activities are based on a sustainable approach. Neither animal attractions that include the torture of animals, nor activities which cause a huge environmental pollution are offered in our trips. Our travel experts will keep the CO2-emissions of our trips as low as possible. They will recommend to travel by train instead of domestic flights or to do cycling tours instead of renting a car. We are offseting all CO2 emissions of our trips by investing in Gold Standard credits of a cooking stove project in Ghana. This project helps to reduce the use of charcoal by 25%.
|Local prosperity and Social Equity||
Fairaway want to strengthen the economy in the target destinations, so that local people will benefit from the tourism industry. Therefore we work together with local travel partners in the countries. We experienced that there is a lot of vertical integration in the tourism industry, it’s becoming harder for small local companies to get access to the market. Fairaway provides a platform for small and medium sized tour operators and gives them direct access to the European market.
