Hello Travelers wherever you are
This time I will give brief information about something new in the early 2015’s.
Perhaps you have never heard of the site www.istania.net. Basically Istania is a website Online Travel Agency (OTA), but there is something different from Istania than other OTA sites.
Istania Limited is a Hong Kong company based in Jakarta, which seeks to contribute / raise funds for charities in Indonesia and raise awareness of the travelers to travel and charity.
Indonesia is a country that has so much natural beauty and culture, so that Indonesia has become one of the tourist destinations in the world. However, certain of the Indonesian population living below the poverty line, do not get a decent education and a polluted environment. Therefore Istania invite and bring awareness to the travelers for a vacation while charity.
How does it work?
Istania works like an online Travel Agency. You can choose your city, your location, and the date, type of room and you make payments online. Once payment is confirmed, you will receive your order vouchers would you give to hotel check-in. Every time you make a hotel reservation online, 2% goes to charity Indonesia. The price offered in Istania is the best price available online. So you will not pay extra money to book your room with Istania and you will participate for a good cause. You also can choose the charity Indonesia by clicking the charity logo right before the final payment page.
