General Information

whl.travel is a global online travel-booking network trading in the kind of fun, authentic and responsible travel that is, today, what tourism will be tomorrow: experiential, conscientious and sustainable. It is the springboard for independent consumers headed off the beaten path and yearning to book travel through local businesses, no matter how small, and especially those making mindful decisions about their destinations, often in the developing world.

whl.travel was launched in 2002 as WorldHotel-Link.com, a pilot project of the International Finance Corporation (a member of the World Bank Group). After a series of very successful trials, whl.travel was spun off as a private company in March 2006 and has since grown into a franchise network of local tourism companies in nearly 100 countries.

In support of the local franchises, whl.travel is an unparalleled and powerful global membership organisation that believes in improving ethical standards in tourism from the bottom up and for everyone involved. It does this by entrusting and empowering its local partners, who have practice in experiential and responsible travel and a localís knack for identifying, explaining and sustaining the distinctive qualities of a place. The franchises then work together to create sales opportunities at the global level for unique and local tourism product.
