US: American Express Travel is expanding its signature hotel programmes to make it easier for cardholders to identify sustainable hotels. 

American Express Travel’s 2023 Global Travel Trends Report revealed 78 per cent of respondents were interested in going on a trip this year that supports local communities.

In response to this trend American Express Travel has launched Stay with Purpose, a new online directory of hotels committed to initiatives, such as furthering conservation, community development, and inclusive travel.

Audrey Hendley, president of American Express Travel.“The perfect hotel looks different to every traveller. Through growth and innovation, American Express Travel is offering more luxury hotel options in more destinations, and we are making it easier for Card Members to find and book hotels that align with their values. These hotels are doing exceptional things when it comes to social and environmental impact – from coral reef restoration to horse rehabilitation, to employing local refugees – we are excited to highlight through the ‘Stay with Purpose’ directory”.

Hotels in the ‘Stay with Purpose’ directory include: Thailand’s Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle (pictured), Rosewood Baha Mar in the Bahamas, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam and Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection in the Hudson Valley.
