The three steps of Giving Getaway

  1. Information Gathering: Interviews with locals and travelers from all around the world as well as our Information Collection Questionnaire lay the foundations for Giving Getaway’s travel database. Be part of our thriving community, answer 10 questions and find out what you can choose in return for your help. You would like to know which information have been gathered so far? Check out the World Map to be up to date!​​​
  2. Travel Planning: Giving Getaway plans your next trip by providing information about accommodations, transportation, sights, activities and much more. Simply answer these 10 questions about your next trip and your traveling habits, choose one of our five Customized Information Packages and we will send you a great deal of individually and exclusively customized information within 7 days!
  3. Charitable donations: 10 percent of every payment will be provided for charity and the more payments we receive, the higher this percentage will be set in future!

By your side in travel...

Giving Getaway stays by your side from the first day of your contact request to the very last day of your trip. Itineraries and suggestions for sights, activities and accommodations will be based on your preferences and our Customized Information Packages will provide you with all the important information you need. No service based on a commission by hotel chains, car renting firms or other organization – 100% independent and trustworthy!
Choose our Premium Package and Giving Getaway will take all the necessary steps to help you whenever you find yourself in trouble while you are on the road. Especially on week-long trips it is impossible to foresee every detail which is why continuous support is on the top of the list. Whether you missed your flight, picked up an illness, lost your wallet or got robbed. Your safety is Giving Getaway’s highest priority and approaches in case of emergency will be answered as fast as possible to ensure that you feel safe and secure throughout the whole trip, however long it may take!

...on their side in charity

By providing 10 percent of every payment for three charitable causes, Giving Getaway contributes its share to make this world a better place – and only you decide where your donation goes:
  • People in need
  • Climate protection
  • Animal protection
We at Giving Getaway strongly believe that it is possible to create a community that is based on trust and reciprocity. It starts with providing information and results in a large chain of good actions!
