New York, New York – Wayaj, the sustainability travel platform, is now onboarding hotels and resorts, inviting them to become members of an exciting eco-system of sustainably-minded accommodations.
Membership in Wayaj is complimentary to all lodging types and with that, each member will be included in our new booking channel "ALIGHT" which launches in the 2nd quarter of this year. ALIGHT is purpose-built to have a positive impact on travel and drive change by connecting sustainability-minded travelers with trusted hotels and travel ideas worldwide.
Wayaj is designed to encourage and promote earth friendly travel and has over 470 hotel members in 109 countries. Our members include independently owned properties and several major hotel brands and affiliations such as Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Six Senses, Marriott, IHG, Hilton, Relais and Chateaux to name a few.
While Sustainability has been around for several years, the recent pandemic has elevated its importance making it a major travel trend. Nelly O Gedeon, Founder and CEO of Wayaj applauds the hospitality sector for taking that step forward and paving the way for a new paradigm shift in travel. "Travelers have become more conscious and are looking for properties that practice sustainability and encourage responsible travel as they understand their role in saving the planet for future generations", stated Nelly. "At Wayaj, we see sustainability as a journey, and feature hotels that are leaders, but we are also actively supporting properties that are just starting on their journey. We connect environmentally and socially conscious travelers with our hotel members who have made it their mission to provide a wide range of travel experiences while protecting the planet." continued Nelly.
Wayaj recently developed a proprietary Carbon Footprint Calculating Engine (CFC EngineTM) which is unlike any other. It is easy to use, seamlessly integrates into member websites allowing travelers to calculate the carbon footprint of their stay (accommodation, flight and transportation) and delivers instant results based on real data.
