ADVENTURE + GIVING

We never actually own the freedom to travel the globe in style;
we merely look after it for the next generation.

The Power of
Thank You

Every minute of every day there are millions of remarkable people in our communities and around the world who make exceptional travel and adventure a reality. Some we meet during our journeys, while others are operating behind the scenes, or in plain sight, on our behalf.

Oftentimes, these truly talented and dedicated individuals are far from able to recharge their own batteries, spend more quality time with their loved ones, or achieve their goals. As in any profession, the power of recognition and “thank you” for an exceptional effort cannot be underestimated. Shaped by savvy American Global Citizens living in the United States and abroad, THE AMERICAN TRAVEL PLEDGE exists to recognize and empower these extraordinary individuals.

The American
Travel Pledge

We never actually own the freedom to travel the globe in style;
we merely look after it for the next generation.


"I (say your name) take THE AMERICAN TRAVEL PLEDGE.
I pledge my support for those who strive to maintain our freedom
and promote our ability to explore the United States and beyond.
And thank those who educate and share their expertise,
nourish and heal with skill and imagination,
protect wildlife and preserve nature with passion,
and work to keep travelers happy, healthy and safe.
We can all tread lightly and explore with kindness in mind. And
remember the best footprints left behind leave no trace;
only the world a better place."©
