Plan your Fair Trade Trip
Fair Trade Tourism is for travellers who want to make a difference.
By choosing to be a responsible traveller, you’ll be giving back to the people and the environment you visited, plus you’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience at the same time!
Fair Trade Tourism certified businesses are committed to fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, equitable distribution of benefits and respect for human rights, culture and the environment.
By selecting Fair Trade Tourism certified businesses, you choose to make a valuable contribution to the people directly and indirectly affected by your travel. Not just the people who work at the place you've visited, but those communities and surrounding industries that helped make your holiday so special.

You can also let a tour operator do the work for you, and go on a fully certified Fair Trade Holiday. A Fair Trade Holiday must include a set amount of Fair Trade Tourism certified businesses; the tour operator/s must be approved for Fair Trade Tourism; and a set contribution must be paid to the Fair Trade Tourism Development Fund.

Regardless if you plan your own trip, or select a Fair Trade Holiday from a tour operator, you will leave feeling relaxed and recharged, knowing that you’ve made a real difference to someone’s life and livelihood.
