There are a lot of options out there when it comes to booking your flights, finding the perfect hotel, and buying stylish travel products. If you’re about to start planning your next getaway, support these for-us, by-us businesses that are keeping the culture in mind. 

Innclusive

Founder and CEO, Rohan, grew tired of being denied rentals on Airbnb based on what seemed to be racial profiling and decided to do something about it. Innclusive is a “platform that celebrates people” through searchable vacation rental homes, long-term roommates, and events in over 130 countries. 

Airfordable 

Airfordable is a genius concept that allows you to pay for your flights in installment plans instead of having to pay the full cost at the time of booking. This means, you can lock in early rates on flights, even if you don’t have the funds at the time for the full fare. Your ticket is sent to you once you have made your last installment payment before your departure date.

Black Travel Box makes black hair and skin care products in TSA-approved, travel-sized packaging.
