Explore with Painted Circle
A membership unlike any other
How does Painted Circle work?
It's so familiar.
But it's completely different.
On the surface Painted Circle looks like any other travel website or reseller you may know. We built a familiar platform that’s easy to use. But under the surface is where things get interesting.
We want to help you explore. With Painted Circle you can find great businesses that actively promote inclusion and are taking steps towards making a positive impact on their communities. And when you upgrade to RADIUS, you reward yourself with access to special offers, support the businesses taking part with Painted Circle, and help contribute to great charitable and non-profit initiatives building a better world.
We’re committed to being an ethical travel platform
Many popular travel websites and resellers charge steep fees or commissions to the businesses on their sites. Many travelers don’t realize that when they purchase an activity through one of these traditional travel sites that the hard-working folks that actually deliver your experience often pay commissions of 20-30% back to that reseller. We think that stinks.
Businesses found on Painted Circle pay us NO commissions, and NO fees. Instead, they create and share special offers with you through our upgrade program, RADIUS. Travelers like you can tap into great offers and businesses protect their hard-earned revenue. It’s a win-win.
Painted Circle has a 10% Community Giving Strategy
For every RADIUS upgrade purchased on paintedcircle.com, we donate 10% of proceeds of every sale to worthy non-profit organizations and causes.
We also team up with great nonprofits and charities for promotional fundraisers. Organizations that would like to promote Painted Circle are issued discount codes by us that they can then share with their members and beyond. When those discounts are redeemed on paintedcircle.com, we make sure our 10% donation goes to their organization.
Explore with confidence.
