If online booking is a boring procedure for you Green Balkans NGO and Goodwings give you a nice reason to do it. If you choose to book a hotel room via Goodwings website they promise to donate 1/3-1/2 of their commission to support our conservation work. Annually the travel industry turnover is estimated to be tens of billions of euro. On one hand the travels generate economic growth and offer us opportunity to visit interesting sites and meet people but on the other hand these lead to higher CO2 emissions, habitats and local cultures loss. Goodwings is one of the few companies in the sector that commit to compensate the negative consequences of travel through its work. It has the vision of turning the hotel industry into a driving force for positive change.

Led by UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Goodwings works with Green Balkans NGO and other NGOs to positively impact people and planet, one hotel stay at a time. Goodwings offers the same over 365,000 hotels as other competitive booking sites with prices on average 10% lower than the market price. By spending money very limited funds on marketing and advertising, Goodwings is able to give 1/3-1/2 of their commission to NGOs like Green Balkans. So, when a traveler books a hotel stay for 100 euro, Green Balkans NGO receives approx. 3-5 euro. A true win-win.

No matter whether you are company or travel on private matters you can support financially the work of Goodwings partner NGOs. The program is dedicated mainly to corporate clients of the platform due to higher number of travels they do but is also an option for individual users of the website.
