The Travelife Sustainability System has commenced a major review into the criteria it uses to rate accommodation. The scheme has announced the change in a bid to boost its relevance, as well its growth plans.
The criteria was first set in 2004 and will now undergo public consultations from 1 November- 16 December and again from 1 February to 2 March.
“Travelife is supported by the EU, hotels across the world and by large international tour operators and smaller independents. It has become the international certification scheme of choice for the travel industry,” said Nikki White, head of destinations and sustainability at ABTA. “In order to ensure credibility,grow the scheme and keep it relevant to all its members and subscribers, we need to ensure it has the most up-to-date and relevant criteria. This review will do just that, and we look forward to hearing and considering all interested parties’ recommendations”.
