In addition to our organizational goals, our team is driven by a desire to do more in our community and for the world. We envision a future that is more sustainable, equitable, diverse and inclusive, and are proud to share our contributions and spotlight our partners as we focus our corporate giving across three areas.
A sustainable future requires finding solutions for a cleaner environment for today and healthier planet for tomorrow. We will support efforts that conserve and protect our natural resources and restore our biodiversity.
Healthier communities mean that the heart of our families are well supported and nurtured. Our goal is to work with organizations that focus on uplifting women and children in the areas of education, healthcare and housing.
Strengthening the educational foundation for our youth – regardless of their background – will ensure a more equitable and innovative society. We will work with partners that provide greater access to educational resources and career opportunities that positively shape the future of our youth.
As part of our newly established social responsibility initiative, we are proud to announce a significant partnership with One Tree Planted, a global nonprofit focused on reforestation, by planting trees around the world.
Through our partnership, we will support the planting of up to 250,000 trees in 2021. For every booking on our platform, we will donate one new tree.
Our goal is to support reforestation efforts in California, which has been devastated by record-breaking wildfires in recent years, in our home state of Colorado, which also faces threats such as forest fires and drought, as well as reforestation needs across the U.S.

It’s well past the time for tech to embrace and hold space for Black and Brown women entrepreneurs. We proudly support Black Girl Ventures to empower Black and Brown woman-identifying founders with access to community, capital, and capacity building in order to meet business milestones that lead to economic advancement through entrepreneurship.
In 2020, we contributed $50,000 to Black Girl Ventures to help open up business opportunities and expand the network for these entrepreneurs in the travel and technology industries. Also, we are supporting BGV by pairing entrepreneurs with mentors in key leadership positions at Hotel Engine.
In addition to Black Girl Ventures, we will continue to look for like-minded organizations and programs to support through financial contributions, volunteer time and other donations. Our goal is to make the most impact toward equality.

The future of technology depends on a diverse pipeline of math and science graduates. We proudly partner with Access Opportunity to create more opportunities for high-achieving, low-income students to define their individual path through high school, college and career.
The program supports the students for six years, following a selective admissions process in the 10th grade. The hope is that these young leaders can use their education to make a difference in their communities. The ultimate goal of Access Opportunity is to help students, their families, and their communities reach their full potential.
