MAKING TRAVEL MATTER Travel has the ability to open our eyes to the unique cultures and spellbinding beauty of the world. As leaders in travel, we recognise that we have the responsibility to do what we can to ensure that future generations too can enjoy the gift of travel. With this in mind, in 2008, our parent company The Travel Corporation created the not-for-profit TreadRight foundation with the simple philosophy to enrich, protect and preserve the destinations we visit. Simply put, making travel matter. A year later, fuelled by this philosophy, we created JoinTrafalgar to Make A Difference on our trips, here are just a few examples of many ways you help us make a difference by choosing Trafalgar:
