76% of customers are seeking sustainable travel options. How will your next promotion deliver?

Over 33,000 travellers were surveyed for Booking.com’s annual Sustainable Travel Report and 76% said they want more sustainable holidays. But, despite good intentions, 44% of travelers don’t know where to find more sustainable options.

Its up to us in the travel industry to put the right sustainable products on the shelf for the consumer to buy. 

Understanding the environmental impact of the tours, holidays, activities, and hotel stays you provide is essential if you are to meet your customers’ expectations. 

Can your team confidently advise customers on the greenest options?

Discussing sustainability can be a little like talking about fitness, it means different things to different people, from taking a brisk stroll to running an ultra-marathon. Measuring carbon emissions is by no means everything, but it is a strong and quantifiable place to start.
