Travelocity has two different initiatives to accomplish their goal of a better world – Green Travel and Voluntourism.  For their greening of the globe, they highlight their multitude of eco-friendly hotels, as well as offer hybrid cars and carbon offsets.  To have a more local impact, Travelocity offers a unique program that supports travelers who volunteer at their destination.  Each quarter Travelocity awards a $5000 volunteer vacation grant to a globetrotter who demonstrates their passion for volunteering and travel.  For normal travelers who want to give back to the place they’re visiting, Travelocity can also help identify top volunteer organizations.
