Europe/Amsterdam Explorers | Traveling Proud with Tim and Rod unveiled their very first Explorers, Tim and Rod, as part of their inaugural Booking Explorers campaign last week.

Making travel more inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community is important to build a world that everyone can experience. At, our research revealed that more than half of LGBTQ+ travellers have had less-than-welcoming or uncomfortable experiences at a property where they were staying. This means that a huge part of the travel population still can’t comfortably show up as themselves. 

At, Australian adventurers Tim and Rod reflected on their travel escapes from exploring the world together, their favourite queer-friendly travel destinations and the importance of being role models for the LGBTIQ+ community.

They are the perfect advocates to Travel Proud, and we’d love to interest you in a personality profile of Tim and Rod to find out more on:

  • Travelling freely as a same-sex couple and fuelling their love for adventure
  • Sharing how their travel journey amplified by winning ‘The Amazing Race’ television show which enabled them to visit incredible places
  • How travel has been a big part of their lives to express themselves and solidify their relationship further
