Why book through us

Yugen Earthside is a booking platform: we connect mindful travelers to sustainable trips run by our partners. 

Here’s why clients love booking through us.

01

Save time finding a responsible trip

Planning the perfect trip is a lot of work, even without spending time to thoroughly research and ensure it’s responsible.

We make it easier for you to feel good about traveling sustainably without getting bogged down in the details.

02

Receive comprehensive sustainability guidance

Sustainable travel is not only about the trip. It’s also about being properly insured, giving back to the environment through carbon removals or offsets, packing with zero-waste and plastic-free products, and more.

We help with all of that.

03

Enjoy a personalized approach

We are a platform that connects you to responsible trips designed by our boutique providers, and we do so with a personal touch. 

You will feel like you’re speaking with a human – who truly cares about your trip and the planet – every step of the way.

04

Get expert advice

By staying on top of the latest industry trends, reports, and articles, we’ll be able to answer any travel questions you may have.

05

Travel inline with your values

We’re the opposite of mass tourism.

  • Yugen Earthside is a carbon-neutral company, and we donate 1+% of our gross profit to tourism development projects.
  • Our tour operator partners are committed to sustainability. Most also give back to the environment or local communities.
  • We are collectively focused on helping small groups travel purposefully.

By booking through YE and our network of partners, you are supporting the long-term, sustainable growth of tourism via companies that care about more than just profit.

06

Pay securely

When it comes time to pay, we will send a secure booking link to your group. We process credit card payments and ACH bank transfers through Stripe. A deposit will confirm your trip, and we will accommodate installment payments for the rest.

On the booking page, you’ll be able to see which group members have joined the trip, keeping everyone on the same page and making group bookings seamlessly easy.
