On a journey to transform LGBTQ+ travel

These three priorities are at the heart of Travel Proud:

Helping LGBTQ+ people travel with confidence

We highlight Proud Certified properties with the Travel Proud badge. These 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.

Helping properties be extra welcoming

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 inclusive stays for LGBTQ+ travelers.

Using the right language in every interaction

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.

We filter places, not people.

With Travel Proud you can experience the world as all of yourself, no matter who you love or how you identify.
