BookDifferent works with over 341,000 hotels in more than 182 countries to allow you to get great rates and know that half of BookDifferent’s commission will go towards a charity of your choice. The website has teamed up with Booking.com, a well-established hotel booking website that handles your room reservation.
About a month after your stay, you’ll get an e-mail from BookDifferent that details the exact amount you donated to charity. Your information remains private except for your home city and the city your hotel was in will be sent to the charity you selected.
This system allows you to get the low prices you would have received anyway by choosing a room through Booking.com, but the BookDifferent partnership means you can keep prices low and aid a worthy cause, too.
BookDifferent also allows users to find hotels that meet specific needs, such as an eco-label. In fact, there are over 3,500 sustainable hotels listed on the site to choose from. To view the eco-hotel list simply go to the bottom of the website, under the first column you’ll see a eco-hotel option.
As you can see, it’s easier than ever to do something to give back while staying in a well-appointed hotel room whether for a family vacation or a local staycation.
