Travelling has the potential to change hearts and minds, shape perspectives and create long-lasting impressions. Eurail believes that the benefits of travel should go both ways, positively impacting both the traveller and their destinations.

As an alternative to Black Friday, Eurail’s Save and Donate campaign aims to encourage travellers to slow down, savour their journeys and build meaningful connections with people, places, and communities.

The donations will directly support European partners of The Intrepid Foundation, Intrepid Travel’s not-for-profit entity. The foundation empowers travellers to make a positive contribution to the places they visit, experiencing the joy of travel, community, and connection along the way.

Some of the organisations receiving the funds are Humana Zagreb, a cooperative that promotes sustainable fashion based in Croatia (more information: https://www.eurail.com/en/ni/sustainable-shopping), Cooperativa Coraggio, an Italian organisation that fosters knowledge development for sustainable agricultural practices (more information: https://www.eurail.com/en/plan-your-trip/trip-ideas/suggested-itineraries/rome-off-the-beaten-path-highlights), and Portugal-based REFOOD, which helps feed those in need by distributing rescued food from local restaurants and supermarkets (more information: https://www.eurail.com/en/ni/reduce-food-waste-while-traveling).
