RegenLife Good Travel Certificate & Seal
About The RegenLife Good Travel Seal
The Criteria Themes
You will be invited to fill out the reporting on our online platform and submit supporting documents. This will indicate to what extent your business implements measures for sustainable and responsible tourism. The reporting consists of 57 general criteria (+ more sector specific criteria) from 12 themes.
The information on the platform will then be assessed by a team of experts, who will evaluate your performance against each criterion. You will also receive feedback on how to improve your performance.
If you achieve a compliance of more than 70%, an independent auditor will verify your reporting by visiting your business. The audit can be carried out online (via video call) or on-site.
The findings of the audit are used to make a final certification decision. If the result is sufficient, you will be awarded with the certification.
What value does this program provide?
Better management and Financial Advantage
By applying the GTS standard your business will save on energy and water consumption, as well as waste disposal costs. On top of that, the Good Travel Seal certification also offers you the best-price guarantee.
Happier Guests = Higher Ratings
Certified businesses receive better reviews and ratings. Happier guests and higher ratings will bring you more visitors. This proves that certification boosts both the management and the quality of services.
Show What You Do
Another benefit of the Good Travel Seal is our full transparency. You will be able to show your customers in which areas you do well. A label alone is not enough, but showing your overall performance is a great strategy!
Certified businesses use 19% less water, produce 24% less waste and 10% less CO2 than non-certified businesses. This is good not only for the environment, but also for the company’s profits.
Promotion & Visibility
Traditional certification programs are not promoting your business. With the Good Travel Seal, your business will be featured in the Good Travel Guide, Sustainable First, Ecohotels.com, Tourism 2030 and, depending on your score, also on Booking.com and Google, providing travellers with easy ways to explore destinations.
