Tour operators next step to membership
1) Please contact chrisk@responsibletravel.com who will send you further details including an application form. Please include a few lines about why you feel you'll meet our responsible travel criteria.
Please note due the number of local operators we already promote in the following areas we are not taking applications for membership from any more local tour operators operating in: Nepal, Vietnam, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Southern Africa, Bhutan, Egypt, Montenegro, cycling and walking operators in Catalonia, Kayaking and cycling in Croatia, and Kerala in India. This is to help us ensure we are a value for money marketing service to the local operators we currently support.

2) Return your completed application form, including your Responsible Travel policy which will need approval.

3) We then work with you to decide which of your tours/accommodation to promote on Responsible Travel. You'll then be able to build your own pages where you'll need to write a trip specific 'making a difference' paragraph for every page, which details how the vacation/accommodation minimises the negative impacts & maximises the benefits on the local community and environment.

4) Your pages go live, you are allocated an Account Manager, and start to receive enquiries - Welcome to Responsible Travel!

Unfortunately due to the large number of e-mails from non responsible tour operators we can no longer guarantee a response for those who do not qualify. Please note that we only promote bona fide businesses and do not consider companies with Google ads on their own website.

All membership fees and commissions are subject to VAT where applicable.
