We are Travalyst: Transforming the future of travel for everyone, led by HRH The Duke of Sussex, Travalyst is a bold new global initiative founded by Ctrip, Skyscanner, TripAdvisor, Visa and Booking, 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 time is now
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.
- By 2030 1.8bn people will travel internationally
- Travel and tourism generated $8.8tn to the global economy in 2018
- Today1 in 10 of all jobs globally are travel related
Travalyst is the first endeavor to fall under the umbrella of Harry and Duchess Meghan’s new charitable foundation, Sussex Royal.
