Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20 – Thailand: Traveliko is a new and socially conscious hotel booking platform that wants to give power back to hotels. Founded by Bjorn Harvold, Martijn Dekker and Yann Gouriou. Traveliko announced that it is partnering with Socialgiver, a social enterprise founded by CEO Arch Wongchindawest, to expand the reach of Traveliko’s charitable activities in Thailand.
Martijn Dekker, a Traveliko co-founder, said, “When you book a room online through Traveliko you can choose to donate to three kinds of charitable organizations: Animals, People or the Planet.” In Thailand, Traveliko decided to partner with Socialgiver to coordinate the donations that Traveliko will be paying to charitable projects. “We’re happy to work with a proven party woven into Thai society who understands Thai values and appreciates them deeply. We can count on Socialgiver to make sure the money we invest in charity goes to the right people.”
Traveliko joined forces with Socialgiver, a company that partners with socially-responsible businesses in Thailand and persuades them to donate excess goods and services to raise funds for charity. Through this partnership, Traveliko stands to donate 1 – 2 million THB in 2018 to Thai charities and projects.
Arch Wongchindawest, the CEO and founder of Socialgiver said: “Our social enterprise is founded with a vision to empower businesses and consumers to do good every day as a part of their life. We believe it’s important for everyone to make choices that positively impact people in our society and we’re super excited to be working with Traveliko to open new opportunities for everyone to give back.” Socialgiver is helping Traveliko ensure that funds raised go to high-quality charity projects that can deliver results and, most importantly, maintain transparency and communication – allowing everyone to see the impact they’ve made.
Natalie Glebova, Traveliko’s brand ambassador and former Miss Universe, believes “Traveliko giving back 20% of their commission to worthy causes could make an enormous difference by helping the world’s underprivileged people, protected endangered animals and preserving the environment.”
Traveliko launched in May 2017. Base in Singapore with a supported office in Thailand, the start-up has already registered 700 properties on their site and aims to expand to over 8,000 hotels in 2018. Traveliko, founded to give hotels a fair and cheaper alternative to the big OTAs, charges a 10% flat commission and donates 20% of that commission to charities. The company is completely independent from any other OTA and follows a customer-centric approach: they operate on a partnership model that aims to save hotels money on commission, so they can focus on giving their customers a better experience.
Traveliko has partnered with hotel chains such as Centara, Dusit, Chatrium, Banyan Tree, Absolute Hotels and many others. Traveliko’s latest integration is with channel manager Siteminder. Exiting channel managers include Fastbooking, RateGain and CloudBeds to help facilitate on boarding properties in Southeast Asia
