What is the Sustainable Truckee - Fall Lodging Offer?

Visit Truckee-Tahoe is giving visitors who book Truckee lodging Sept. 28th through December 21, 2022, excluding Thanksgiving weekend, a $100 Sustainable Truckee Gift Card to use during their trip or anytime up to June 23, 2022. It's easy for your friends and family to get the offer. First, they book Truckee lodging (there are some great deals and seasonal rates!), then they will fill out a short application on the Fall Lodging Offer page.

$25 also goes to Sustainable Truckee Stewardship Projects

In addition to supporting our local economy, Visit Truckee-Tahoe will set aside $25 for stewardship projects for every qualified applicant to the Sustainable Truckee - Fall Lodging Offer. So far, we've provided major funding for two all inclusive (adaptive) trails, trail ambassadors, a free bike valet and much more. See the full list of Sustainable Truckee programs and sponsorships.

You can buy Sustainable Truckee Gift Cards at any time. Do all of your shopping online for the holidays! We set aside 25% of EVERY Sustainable Truckee Gift Card for stewardship.

Thanks for Encouraging Sustainable Travel & Shopping Local

When family and friends choose to visit Truckee in the fall, they are making a sustainable travel decision that supports local businesses and year-round jobs during our shoulder season. It also helps reduce the concentrated impact on our environment during peak season.
