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.

Since 1841, Thomas Cook has been delivering quality travel services. Now we operate in 21 markets and offer holidays to most countries around the world. In 2007, My Travel Group plc and Thomas Cook AG merged to form Thomas Cook Group plc, a FTSE 100 listed company, based in London. As a result of the merger and subsequent acquisitions, we now employ over 31,000 people globally.
The Thomas Cook name remains one of the world’s best known and respected brands in travel and we continue our efforts in going further to make dreams come true for our customers. Sustainability is no exception to this committed approach. We recognise the many virtues of travel, including the positive cultural exchange and the boost to local economies, but we are also aware of tourism’s impacts on the environment and societies. Our industry has a responsibility to address these issues and Thomas Cook Group, which founded its business with clear social intentions, is proactive in this area.
Thomas Cook recognises the importance of supporting our supply chain in their management of sustainability issues. We are pleased to work with Travelife to encourage and reward those hotels which are making the changes needed to improve. This is a very positive step, giving customers a way to easily identify those hotels which are working to be more sustainable and recognising those suppliers who are working hardest to achieve these goals.
We believe that our customers share our interest in caring for the future of our planet and caring for those people who they meet when on holiday. With Travelife, customers can choose to stay in hotels which also share this belief.
Thomas Cook wants to have sustainability at the core of business strategy. These responsibilities do not sit on the periphery; their importance represents a genuine business risk. Customers, investors, employees, governments and communities no longer look for, but demand that, both time and money be invested in the preservation and protection of the incredible cultures and places we and our customers come into contact with.
Our aim is to make sustainability part of every product we sell, for every customer across all of our businesses.
