A decade of positive impact

We make a difference wherever we can. Our parent company created the not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation with a simple mission: to have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, to protect wildlife and marine life, and to care for the planet we call home. Simply put, to make travel matter.

Powered by TreadRight’s philosophy, JoinTrafalgar was launched a decade ago with the goal of using the positive power of travel to make a difference on our trips and in our offices.


We do our part wherever we can

We help make travel a force for good through our corporate responsibility and by giving our guests the opportunity to make a positive impact when they travel.

Learn about how we make travel matter for our planet, people & for wildlife

Powered by our not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, we are making public our commitment to Make Travel Matter for the better.

Inspired by leading destinations across the globe, every one of our team members and sister companies worldwide are pledging to make travel matter.

Our pledge stands for people, for wildlife and for our planet.

Help us to Make Travel Matter.

The pledge

I will make my travel matter – for our planet, for people and for wildlife.
When I explore this planet, I will do my best to tread right.
I will refuse single use plastics when I can and recycle what I cannot avoid. 
When possible, I will offset my travels. 
When I meet new people, I will honor their home as I do my own and do so in the spirit of diversity and inclusion. I will purchase locally made items wherever possible and pay a fair price.
When I experience wildlife, I will do so in nature. 
I will not ride animals that ought not be ridden, nor support animal cruelty in any way.
Together, we will tread right upon the earth – and we will make our travel matter.
