In 2009, Evaneos was founded on the belief that a different way of traveling was possible, that trips could be better for travelers and for the places they visit. It became the world's first online marketplace to give travelers the choice to directly plan and customize multi-day trips with more than 500 in-destination travel experts around the world.

Today, this vision is encapsulated in the Evaneos Better Trips promise, which enables travelers to plan unforgettable adventures and contribute to a future for the industry that’s more respectful of natural environments and local communities, economies and cultures. 

Every Evaneos agency agrees to a rigorous Code of Conduct and is scored against the Better Trip Index, which evaluates their ability to deliver exceptional service and transform tourism into a force for good. Credibility and accountability are key: agencies are scored using traveler feedback, random audits, as well as commercial and operational performance indicators.  

For travelers, this means access to unique and original experiences, from island-hopping in remote archipelagos to nights under the stars in little-visited national parks. To date, more than 500,000 travelers from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland have explored more than 130 countries with Evaneos. More than 94% give 4 or 5 stars to their local agent.

There’s still a long way to go to sustain real change and Evaneos is committed to investing a percentage of each sale into the Better Trips Fund, with a minimum commitment of €3 million by 2025. This fund is dedicated to reducing the negative effects of tourism and driving positive transformation.
