Following its launch just 12 months ago, the highly popular Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has now been adopted by more than 275 destinations around the world.
WTTC, which has continually led the private sector to rebuild global consumer confidence and encourage the return of Safe Travels, made history when it launched the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp, just 12 months ago.
The stamp was developed to help restore confidence in travelers and aims to revive the global Travel & Tourism sector which has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now it is being used by destinations around the world, with the hotspots of Thailand, Barbados, Cyprus, Abu Dhabi, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Mongolia, and Kyrgyzstan, among the latest to join WTTC’s ever-growing list.
The WTTC Safe Travels stamp and its global protocols have been embraced by more than 200 Travel & Tourism CEOs, and many of the world’s major tourism groups.
Gloria Guevara, WTTC president, and CEO said: “We are delighted that our Safe Travels stamp continues to grow from strength to strength and has been adopted by destinations from all corners of the world. From Portugal to Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka to Slovenia, Tunisia to Tobago, our stamp is now recognised around the globe, which is testimony to the hard work which has been put in to make the stamp work for both destinations and holidaymakers. As the global vaccine rollout picks up pace around the world and with travel restrictions beginning to be relaxed, we believe the stamp will prove a key component of destination recovery and restoring consumer confidence.”
The WTTC Safe Travel stamp protocols were designed following guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and taking best practices from WTTC’s Members into account.
