Amsterdam, Netherlands, May 17, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- From today Visitopia, the worlds most social internet travel agency that specializes in city guides and charities, offers a website with a CO2 voucher system for business to business customers. This means that other companies can use the voucher system of Visitopia on their site or in their stores, so everybody will be able to fly with CO2 compensation. This is an absolute innovation in the travel branch.
Like a lot of other socially aware companies, Visitopia is a young company. It was founded in 2006 by Atze Zwirs. His vision was to make a travel information website with local information about the destinations. To be socially responsible, charity booking pages were brought to life quickly after the idea started. This meant that charities would be able to have an own booking page on the Visitopia website. All the profit of the bookings on those websites will go to that specific charity. With this social approach Visitopia makes use of a rapidly emerging market.
Trees for Travel
Out of the charity pages came in late 2006 the collaboration with Trees for Travel. Together, a CO2 voucher system was created with www.CO2voucher.com as a base website. There are different valued vouchers depending on how far the flight goes. The voucher value will cover the CO2 emission that is created by flying. The vouchers can be used on the Trees for Travel website for various good causes that you can choose yourself. The re-plantation of the Malaysian rainforest is an example of one of the good causes they support. Because Trees for Travel is a official charity, a high return on investment is reached which has as result that a lot of more trees are planted for your money
White Label Travel Solution
The voucher system that is created by Trees for Travel and Visitopia is a white label travel solution. This means that it is accessible for all other travel agencies and companies through links and on- offline banners. The vouchers can be virtual through links, as well as physical in stores. In this way also companies that are not on the internet are able to access and use the platform. The white label travel solution that can be used by all the companies will be coming very soon on the market.
