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.

The sustainable tourism policy applies to TUI Netherland tour operators, retail and airline divisions, helping TUI Nederland to focus on the responsible purchasing of the transportation it uses, its accommodations and excursions in all holiday destinations. The airline ArkeFly has committed to reducing weight and the use of kerosene which will help to reduce its impact on the environmental as well as costs. Furthermore, in the consumer communications, TUI Nederland strives to create customer awareness on sustainable tourism. In order to safeguard the destinations, TUI Nederland collaborates with non-governmental organisations on issues such as poverty alleviation, animal welfare, human rights and nature conservation. Leading by example, TUI has taken environmental actions through its own sustainable procurement practices to reduce our water, energy and paper consumption, the amount of waste it produces, as well as striving to create a safe, healthy, respectful and motivating work environment for its employees and suppliers.
