TripAdvisor, one of the most popular travel companies worldwide, made a move that was greatly appreciated by animal enthusiasts! In a welcome move, they stopped the sale of tickets to places that hurt animals; thereby making us reconsider our travel destinations for our future trips. With this move, the company has greatly discouraging its customers from visiting places that do not pay heed to the welfare of animals and abuse them. The next time you do not see one of your intended destinations available on TripAdvisor; you can safely assume that they are abusive towards animals. With this, TripAdvisor has taken a step ahead in stopping the cruelty caused towards animals.
The CEO, Stephen Kaufer, stated in a press release that as per the new booking policy, education efforts are in place to improve the health of animals and this way, they will be doing their bit. With this, TripAdvisor will also actively promote places that take good care of animals.
The booking policy will reflect across the website totally by 2017 and a few changes will be put in effect immediately. Viator, a partner of TripAdvisor is launching an educational campaign so that people are aware about animal welfare and it will also collaborate with PETA.
