As part of our commitment to responsible tourism, we've made it our mission to help protect the environment and the people in the destinations we travel to. Here's a snapshot of how we're doing this...
We're proud to be part of the TUI Group, who believes we should enable people to explore and enjoy the world without harming it, based on a commitment to sustainable tourism.
Our brochures are printed on paper which is produced from raw material farmed under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes from traceable and sustainable sources. The mills have also been awarded the ISO14001 and EMAS certificates for environmental management.
Working alongside the travel association ABTA, we are encouraging our hotels to adopt the Travelife Sustainability System. This helps us recognise hotels which are the most sustainable with regards to their environmental and social impact. The best performing hotels receive either a Gold award or an Award of Excellence. Look out for these awards on the individual hotel pages.
Closer to Home
It's not just communities abroad we work with. We're also proud to support Make-A-Wish® UK, a charity that grants magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people in the UK fighting life-threatening conditions. A wish can be anything from being a princess for the day, to meeting a hero or going on a once-in-a-lifetime family holiday.
Whatever the child's wish, it gives them and their family an escape from the reality of living with a life-threatening condition - creating memories to treasure forever, whatever the future may hold. Make-A-Wish has granted more than 9,000 wishes to deserving children, but hundreds more will turn to them every year.
We believe this is an incredibly worthy charity where every donation really does count. To find out more about the charity, visit make-a-wish.org.uk
