Responsible travel is part of Audley’s DNA. Since the beginning, we’ve strived to work with local people and businesses in our destinations. Not only do we feel this gives you the best experience, it also brings benefits to local communities. As a result, local people are motivated to preserve what attracts visitors, be it their culture, wildlife or environment. Conversely, we actively avoid ‘tourist traps’.
There’s plenty you can do on your trip to travel the right way, from recycling to being aware of cultural sensitivities, as well as acting as our ‘eyes and ears’ for the great, and not so great.
We were granted the Travelife Partner award in January 2020. The award is recognition for the long-term efforts and commitment we’ve shown in improving our sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility. Compliance required meeting more than 100 criteria related to our office management, product range, international business partners and client information.
Travelife, which has been established with the support of the European Commission, is the leading international sustainability certification in the travel sector. More than 35 national travel associations are promoting the scheme to their members, including ABTA, The British Travel Association and PATA.
We believe it’s our responsibility to help you travel the right way. We do this through collaboration with the people we work closely with across the world, with leaders in the sustainability community and with the passionate staff at Audley.
