Responsible tourism: Ensuring tourism cares for the environment.
Providing opportunities for local people to earn income e.g. from direct employment; by providing supplies to hotels; or by offering excursions.
Providing customers with appropriate information about the culture and environment of the destination to help them get more from their holiday.
Britain's tour operators, in particular the independent ones, have practised responsible tourism for many years. Their tour programmes are designed to work closely with the people and the environment of the destination as an integral part of the holiday experience. They include using hotels that pursue good environmental practices such as conserving water and minimising waste; locally-owned hotels and transport companies that provide employment and income for the local population; hiring local guides; providing customers with key information e.g. tips on dress codes, how to say a few words in the local language and important customs of the destination.
