Custom travel planning for a good cause

We help you make the most of your next trip – and support people and organizations protecting the climate or our animals. 


We customize your trip and donate 10% to charity

Our successful formula: a unique travel data base, customized travel plans, and charitable donations!

Customize your trip and donate 10% to charity

Step 1: Information Gathering

Travelers from all around the world helped us to build a unique database with information about places on all seven continents! 

  • 5€ donation by Giving Getaway for a charitable cause of your choice!

  • 2 months of Instagram promotion for travel related Instagram profiles, websites, and businesses!

  • 1 information sheet with customized information about one destination of your choice!

From secluded places like Antarctica and Greenland over tropical places like Bali and Sri Lanka to megacities like New York City and London. Check out Giving Getaway's World Map to find out which information have been gathered so far!

Now it's your turn: help us build the world's biggest travel database by completing our simple questionnaire about one destination of your choice. Subsequently you can choose one of the three options as a return for your help:

Step 2: Travel Planning

We provide information about accommodations, transportation, sights, activities and much more!

  • Sightseer Package: overview of interesting sights, activities and general information for free!

  • Holidaymaker Package: whether you plan a city trip to London or a getaway to regions like the Côte d'Azur or the Algarve, this package includes everything you need to know for your next short trip on 10 pages!

  • Globetrotter Package: do you plan to explore a whole new country? Choose the Country Package and you will get 30 pages of useful information, such as top attractions, activities, hidden gems, accomodation, restaurants along your entire travel route!

  • Nomad Package: the best choice for novice and long-term travelers is the Premium Package as it's the only package that includes full time support, unlimited and last-minute recommendations for accommodation and travel advice for unexperienced travelers!

  • Vagabond Package: None of these packages meet your needs? No problem! Answer the questions, choose the Custom Package, select only information you wish to receive and Giving Getaway will send you an exclusive price proposal within 24 hours!

Choose the package that suits you best, answer 10 questions, lean back and let Giving Getaway do all the work! 

Step 3: Charitable Donations

It starts with providing information and results in a large chain of good actions!


Greed for profit seems to be omnipresent. Nothing works without money, but Giving Getaway's approach is to attach utmost importance to other factors:

  • Reciprocity

  • Transparency

  • Charity

Giving Getaway offers five different Customized Information Packages for very reasonable prices and provides 10 percent of every payment for people in need, climate protection or animal protection - and only you decide where your donation goes! The more payments we receive, the higher this percentage will be set in future.

What our customers say:


Ania O. (Poland)

What Chris did exceeded my expectations. I love planning a trip, but ... Chris's plan was a mastery! Something that delighted me were the maps with all locations, interesting places, viewpoints and restaurants. No more traveling without Chris's maps, thank you!

Yazen F. (USA)

Patagonia was by far one of the toughest trips I ever had to plan. Chris helped me arrange flights, accommodations, bus routes, and entrance fees to all the national parks. His itinerary was well detailed and extremely helpful. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

Lisa W. (Germany)

Giving Getaway’s travel planning service is amazing! I just entered my desired destination and my interests in the short questionnaire and then I received an information package that provided me with all relevant information.

Great concept and terrific execution!


Linda H. (Netherlands)

Serkan B. (Germany)

The Information Package was clearly structured and contained everything I needed to know for my trip, no more guidebooks needed! And the best thing is that Chris included information other travelers collected on their trips. I will definitely order again, thank you!

Liz R. (USA)

Chris' travel planning service is excellent!! He provided me with a very detail information of the top places I should visit, what food I should try and hidden gems. Don't hesitate to contact him, I highly recommend you working with him.
