Lets Talk Tourism
Tourism is definitley an area that BlaBlaCar partakes in. With over 20 million members worldwide, we connect drivers with empty seats to passengers traveling the same way, from here, there and everywhere!
World Tourism Day was created by the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), with the aim to raise awareness of the benefits of tourism: tourism is vital to the international community, from a social, cultural, political and economic point of view. It has a very important impact on countries and communities around the world, so on the 27th of September, we want to help raise awareness around tourism, as a force for good, creating a better world for all.

Drivers, don’t drive alone!
Do you ever find yourself driving long-distances in your car with empty seats in the back? Those empty seats could be filled with BlaBlaCar passengers! By sharing your ride, you contribute further towards tourism by ridesharing to a number of different destinations. Sound great, right?
Passengers, you can get involved too
When you choose to travel with BlaBlaCar, you are filling otherwise empty seats that would be travelling down our roads, making tourism as a whole more sustainable and eco-friendly.
Until next time, stay BlaBla!
P.S. Don’t forget the hastags #WTD2015 & #1billiontourists
