App of the week : fairtrip

FairTrip is a travel and collaborative app that helps travelers find and share local and authentic places while having a positive social and economic impact on the visited place. 

Any user can add new places in one tap, provided that it meet the FairTrip criteria: 

Authentic, Green, Local, Social and Fair.

Each place is submitted for approval to the FairTrip team before appearing on the app and, afterwards, users can still report those who no longer meet the criteria, those who have closed, etc. Every FairTrip user is actually a potential guide.

FairTrip is the first mobile app in the world dedicated to fair and sustainable tourism and counts more than 3,000 locations worldwide.

Travelers are looking to find authentic places, which are less popular and a bit off the grid. This app helps in making tourism more inclusive and sustainable.
