We are Inspired by Travel

When you explore communities near and far, taking in the beauty and diverse cultures, it changes how you see your place in the world. That’s why Expedia Cares encourages social responsibility. Together, we can be a powerful force to fight against poverty, disease, and oppression, while enabling sustainable and dignified lives.

It's Time to Change Lives

Matching Gifts
Volunteer Hour Match

We’re humbled by our team’s passion for individual giving and volunteering. That’s why we honor their commitment by matching donations and the value of the time they volunteered–to reinforce their significant efforts and support the organizations they care about most.

Global & Local Volunteer Committees

Grassroots volunteer efforts contribute to the unique community cultivated at Expedia. Our initiative, innovation, and compassion aren’t just reserved for work, they extend into all aspects of our lives. That’s why many locations have employee-driven committees that source, plan, and staff local volunteer opportunities, benefiting a variety of local causes.

 

Global Day of Caring
Global Month of Caring

This signature volunteering event is an extension of our team’s passion for giving back in their own communities. Hosted in more than 50 countries during our Month of Giving, this event provides all Expedians the opportunity to join together, giving their time and talents to make meaningful contributions where they work and live.

Global Ambassador Program

Often called “the coolest field trip ever,”  this program takes Expedians to a challenged destination, immersing them in the local culture to understand how we can help support tourism and sustainable living in the area. The impact of these journeys is long-lasting, breaking down barriers, and unveiling new possibilities for how we can impact the world together.
