It uniquely gives travelers opportunities to book city rooms, apartments and houses while supporting community projects. The site claims “authentic, fair and conscious tourism,” with pledges to donate 50% of its commission to social projects specified by city residents.“

The website start-up so-far offers lodgings in five pilot cities: Valencia, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Bologna and Venice. If you’re interested in Venice, before booking do thorough research about major flooding now devastating the city. Fairbnb.coop expects to add properties in more European cities in the near future.
