Four times a year, CREST holds travel auctions via Charitybuzz. These online auctions feature travel packages from our Platinum Sponsors and other responsibly- and sustainably-operated travel companies. The proceeds of these auctions are an integral part of making sure we can continue our programs to advance responsible travel and daily operations as a non-profit.
Bidding on one of our packages not only allows you to enjoy a unique responsible travel experience but also allows you to have a positive impact on the places you visit.
Our spring auction has ended. Our next auction will open at the end of July.
If you represent a high-quality hotelier or tour operator with significant environmental and socially-responsible practices, we’d love to talk to you about joining our next auction. Participating helps to increase your company’s visibility as a sustainably-minded business (see CREST’s 2018 The Case for Responsible Travel: Trends & Statistics) while raising money to ensure CREST can continue to work for you to promote responsible travel.
