ABOUT US

Responsible tourism

At Hayes & Jarvis we are committed to promoting responsible tourism. So we have made it our mission to protect the environment and the local people in the destinations you love. That way we can provide great holidays now and into the future.

As travellers ourselves, we are aware of the impact that tourism can have on local communities and it is our aim to provide holidays that leave a positive impact on our destinations. We are passionate about directly benefitting these communities through sustainable travel, environmental protection and social projects.

We believe we should enable people to explore and enjoy the world without harming it. We recognise that the success of our business goes hand in hand with the way we treat our environment and the people in our destinations. Therefore, we work to support and involve local people to ensure we directly benefit the cultures and environmental conservations of the communities we visit, giving our customers a more enriched holiday.

Green holidays

Working alongside the Federation of Tour Operators, we encourage our hotels to adopt the Travelife Sustainability System. This helps us recognise those that are environmentally and socially sustainable. The best performing hotels receive a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Travelife Award. Hotels who receive a Bronze have reduced their impact on the environment and treated their people fairly; Silver is for hotels that additionally played an active role in helping the local community and the environment; and Gold is awarded to hotels that demonstrate advanced sustainability practices, seek continual improvements, and communicate their progress. Many of our hotels have received a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Travelife Award for their efforts toward the Travelife Sustainability System. Together we work with Travelife to make holiday experiences more sustainable and to manage and improve environmental and social impacts. We hope that our continuous efforts to promote sustainability will encourage more hotels to aim for Gold Travelife Awards in the coming years.
