Responsible travel is something we really care about at Travel Counsellors, which is why we work with international charity The Travel Foundation to make that happen, and to help us leave a better world for future generations to enjoy and explore.

The Travel Foundation is an international charity, who work to ensure tourism brings greater benefits for local people and the environment in destinations. The charity designs and delivers sustainable tourism initiatives in mainstream tourism destinations, as well as providing guidance, training and expertise to travel companies globally.

The Travel Foundation believes that if tourism is done right, destinations won’t just survive, they’ll thrive. And that’s certainly a belief we have in common.

Our Partnership

We are working together to educate our people, supplier partners and customers around the importance of sustainable practice and the role they can play in this. Each person that joins Travel Counsellors signs up to this important commitment to learn and consider responsible tourism in every holiday they create.

For us, sustainable travel is also related with a more authentic travel experiences, visiting unspoilt places and immersing in local culture. And at Travel Counsellors this is our passion, and a passion shared by our customers. That’s why we work to create more sustainable supply chains and are part of some hands-on projects to make a real impact in these destinations.
