We are happy and proud to announce that we are now part of the Tomorrow Benefits Program and you can save 10% on your booking with socialbnb. Tomorrow advertises with the slogan "Banking for a better future" and offers its customers a sustainable bank account. A sustainable bank account - what does that mean? You should already know that banks use your savings and don't just leave them in your account. What you probably didn't know is what this money is used for. From Tomorrow Bank's point of view, it's being used for the wrong things!
“Book your socialbnb now for more equality, education, nature protection, …” it says on our website.
