Travelife is an international sustainability certification programme for hotels and accommodations. We work in partnership with tour operators, travel agents and accommodation providers to help protect destinations for the future and increase the positive impacts of the holidays they offer.
This includes supporting local businesses, buying local goods where possible, and protecting the environment and the well-being of people, including their staff, customers and suppliers. By working in partnership with accommodations, tour operators and travel agents around the world, together we are starting to change the way tourism businesses operate and make a significant contribution to sustainable tourism.
Travelife is proud to work together with a wide number of tour operators who are committed to improving the sustainability performance of the hotels they work with. This is helping to create - and you to easily find - more sustainable accommodation options.
The list below shows Travelife partner tour operators that are committed to providing holidays with more sustainable hotels, increasing your choice of accommodations that protect and respect their local environment, the people who work for them and the local communities where they operate.

First Choice is one of the UK’s best known and trusted holiday companies. Whether you're returning to your favourite island, looking for a new sun-soaked spot or choosing where to go on your next skiing holiday, First Choice can take you there.
We understand that our holidays, as well as being treasured experiences, can also have impacts. We must therefore reduce carbon emissions, limit the amount of water we use (directly or indirectly) and protect biodiversity, an integral part of our customers’ experience on holiday. We must also respect the culture and people of destinations and offer real economic benefit to local communities. We must make travel experiences special for every customer, while balancing the impacts associated with providing them.
As one of initiatives that demonstrates our commitment to sustainable tourism, we advise all the hotels we work with to utilise the Travelife Sustainability System. For some hotels, Travelife will have served as an introduction to sustainability, whereas for others it recognises the substantial work already undertaken, by the achievement of a Travelife award. Travelife has helped or is helping hotels on their sustainability journey, which in turn supports us on our own journey.
We’d like to imagine that not so long from now, we won’t be talking about sustainable tourism – it will be just the way we and others do business. In the meantime, a trend has emerged: the scores for Travelife awarded hotels on our holiday feedback questionnaires are typically delivering a better customer experience than others. So, why not choose a holiday with us this year at a Travelife hotel?
