There are thousands of travel businesses around the world that claim to ‘support local communities’ or be ‘eco-friendly’, but not all of them can back it up. Lokal works with local leaders and a global network of travelers that can connect you to family-run businesses, community cooperatives, and social enterprises doing real good.
Travel is the world’s largest industry and it has a massive impact on the planet – over 1 billion international trips every year. Unfortunately local communities are often left out of the booming tourism economy and small, homegrown businesses struggle to compete with big name brands.
According to the UN, as little as 5% of international travel spending actually reaches local communities – just 5 cents of every dollar. It doesn’t have to be this way. We believe there should be much more transparency in travel about where your dollar ends up.At Lokal, over 80% of what you spend goes directly to independent, locally-run travel businesses who create amazing experiences and real benefits for communities.
