We filter places, not people. Through our Travel Proud programme, we’re helping to make travel more inclusive for LGBTQ+ travellers.
We want to offer travel experiences that everyone can fully enjoy. Yet our research shows that more than half of LGBTQ+ people have experienced discrimination while travelling. Travel Proud is our way of changing that. Our free Proud Hospitality training gives accommodation providers a fresh perspective on LGBTQ+ travellers’ challenges. We want to make sure that a truly welcoming stay awaits LGBTQ+ people in as many places as possible. That way, you can focus on experiencing the full joy of travel, no matter who you love or how you identify.
We highlight Proud Certified properties with the Travel Proud badge. These property partners are committed to providing extra welcoming hospitality for everyone, so when you see the badge you can be sure you’re booking somewhere you can comfortably show up as yourself.
Delivered with inclusivity experts HospitableMe, our Proud Hospitality training helps property partners to be sure they extend exceptional hospitality to everyone. Proud Certified properties have a dedicated representative who makes sure their whole team is committed to providing an inclusive stay for LGBTQ+ travellers.
We’re making our platform more welcoming for everyone by making sure we use language that’s inclusive. In most cases, you no longer need to choose a gendered title when you make an accommodation booking. And when you create a profile you have a wider choice of gender options.
With Travel Proud you can experience the world as all of yourself, no matter who you love or how you identify.
Want to check if an accommodation is Proud Certified? You’ll be able to identify them by the Travel Proud badge on their property listing.
