Responsible Travel unveils new collection for agents across the globe

Responsible Travel has launched a new collection for agents, opening up its trips to the global travel trade for the first time.

The activist holiday company’s new trade collection features a thousand holidays spanning across more than 80 countries, giving agents access to a unique collection of global holidays, all screened for their commitment to responsible tourism.

The collection will be available via Responsible Travel’s website and include on-the-phone assistance from the company’s travel advisers.

Tim Williamson, director of customer services at Responsible Travel, said: “This year, we celebrate our 20th anniversary – a fitting time to launch our travel agent collection.

“For 20 years, we’ve been pioneers in responsible tourism, offering inspiring holidays that are better for customers; and for the planet and local communities too.

“Now, we’re excited to be able to offer a large and unique, dedicated collection of holidays to travel agents.

“We know that more and more agents are asked about planet-friendly travel options, and this collection has a vast range of community-focused, nature-friendly holidays to choose from.

“We look forward to working with agents and together, making a difference to the future of travel and tourism.”

Responsible Travel has worked alongside 75 of its partners to bring the collection to market, and offers 10 per cent commission on bookings for agents.

Trips particularly suit active travellers wanting to support communities and preserve nature, with sub-categories within the collection including active, adventure, accommodation-only, cruises, cultural, cycling, volunteering, walking, wellness, wildlife and winter holidays.
