Offering unforgettable adventures that benefit regional communities
Since 2005, the people at Globe Travel Centre have cultivated a tailor-made holiday service like no other. With eyes and ears on the ground at each of their spectacular destinations, Globe are uniquely positioned to offer a travel experience that overlooks no detail, offers authenticity and luxury, and is ethically responsible towards the environment and the locals at each destination.
Initially driven by a passion for the magnificent Kerala region of South India, Globe’s emphasis on ecology, sustainability and benefiting local communities has fuelled a range of innovations that set the company apart from other long haul travel businesses. Globe are the first company to make a charitable donation each time a customer books with them. Their trademark personalized travel packs are provided in bags sourced from local people from underprivileged backgrounds, and are made up of recycled tyre tubes. Every customer that travels with Globe travel centre will have a tree planted in their name, as part of the company’s widely-admired “One Traveller – One Tree” campaign.
In addition to their unique ethos, Globe offer one-of-a-kind holiday experiences. Each trip is personalized and tailor-made for the traveller, with itineraries designed by local experts at Globe’s regional Travel Centres in Kerala, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Clients are treated as personal guests, with English-speaking drivers and guides, around-the-clock access to Guest Experience Managers and even a complimentary local mobile phone included in the price.
These experiences include the unforgettable Kerala Houseboat cruise – a chance to witness the elegant simplicity of daily Kerala life from the luxury of a traditional ‘kettuvallom’ made of bamboo, coir and areca nut palm bark-ma. Travellers can also enjoy Globe’s Classic South Kerala Tour, with its ten-day itinerary encompassing jungle treks, elephant rides and overnight stays in the lush tea hills of Munnar and the vibrant port town of Cochin. Each is a spectacular way to take a glimpse at another way of life and the exotic tranquillity of the region’s waters and landscape, particularly during the cold winter months back home!
With more than a decade’s experience of creating innovative, industry-leading ethical experiences, Globe Travel Centre take great satisfaction in bringing a joy to their guests that is matched by the benefits experienced by the communities with whom the company have such a special relationship.
