Responsible Travel

Responsible travel is about the attitude you take and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment!
Some of the responsible travel features embedded into Intrepid trips include:
  • Using public transport where possible
  • Staying in smaller-scale locally owned accommodation where possible
  • Buying locally produced food and drink, and purchasing souvenirs from local artisans
  • Spreading the economic benefits by patronising a range of suppliers
  • Minimising plastic waste where possible
  • Careful management of limited energy and water resources
  • Offering real life experiences which promote cross-cultural understanding
  • Avoiding the exploitation of the vulnerable - including women, children, animals and endangered species
