‘Safe Travels’: Global Protocols & Stamp for the New Normal
Association of Tourism Trade Organisations India (ATTOI) is proud that we are issuing the Safe Travels Protocols approved by the World Travel and Tourism Council. Health and safety continue to be the highest priority and we are confident that the Safe Travels stamp will serve as a signal of trust and confidence and will be an opportunity for the tourism stakeholders with Safe Travels stamp to attract more visitors and recover the tourism as soon as possible.
WTTC alongside our Members, governments, health experts and other industry associations are working together to achieve effective recovery protocols by developing meaningful action plans that optimise sector-wide recovery efforts.
Part of our protocols include providing the public & private sectors with the insights & toolkits for interaction & implementation to ensure that people are and feel safe however WTTC, our members and the sector can not guarantee 100% safety. It is paramount to have common rules. Ultimately, we envision a future of travel which is safe, secure, seamless and provides an authentic and meaningful experience to the traveller across the journey; one which supports the livelihoods of millions and contributes to sustainable economic growth.
Global Safety Stamp to Recognise Safe Travels Protocols
The specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognise governments and companies around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols – so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.
Eligible companies such as hotels, restaurants, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, attractions, short term rentals, car rentals, outdoor shopping, transportation and airports, will be able to use the stamp once the health and hygiene protocols outlined by WHO, WTTC, Govt. of India and respective State Govt. have been implemented.
The protocols align the private sector behind common standards to ensure the safety of its workforce and travellers as the sector shifts to a new normal.
Please note that while the protocols take into account current WHO and CDC guidelines, they are living documents which we will update as new information becomes available about COVID-19. If you would like to know more on WTTC and safe travel protocols, click here.
