Tourism Recovery: CATO Receives 'Safe Travel Stamp'

CATO and its Members have been granted access to utilise the World Travel & Tourism Council's ‘Safe Travel Stamp’; developed to optimise traveller confidence and coordinate global sector-wide tourism recovery efforts.

CATO and its Members have been granted access to utilise the World Travel & Tourism Council’s ‘Safe Travel Stamp’; developed to optimise traveller confidence and coordinate global sector-wide tourism recovery efforts.

The Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) has applied for and been granted access to utilise the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) recently released “Safe Travel Stamp”.

CATO’s application was approved based on the implementation by CATO Members of enhanced health and safety measures in line with the WTTC global Safe Travels protocols.

WTTC’s protocols were developed to optimise sector-wide recovery efforts by rebuilding confidence among travellers and ensuring a coordinated approach of the global Travel & Tourism public and private sectors.

“CATO Members can use the Safe Travel Stamp in their communications and promotional materials subject to acknowledgment of, and agreement to a set of usage principles.”

Brett Jardine, CATO Managing Director

The 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 WTTC, have been implemented.
