The tourism professional membership organisation, The Tourism Society has become the first organisation in the UK to be issued the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels Stamp.

The WTTC Safe Travels Stamp allows stakeholders and consumers of the travel and tourism industry to be reassured that the destination authorities and companies holding these stamps adhere to the council’s global health and hygiene protocols.

With this seal of approval, The Tourism Society is able to accredit its own members, which include regional tourist boards and attractions, through self-assessment of their own Safe Travels Stamp.

The Tourism Society has stated it is uniting with the WTTC in the implementation of their global protocols, with the purpose of kick-starting tourism and speeding up the recovery of the tourism sector.
