Fair Trade Tourism: The Mark Of A Good Holiday
The aim of Fair Trade Tourism is to make tourism more sustainable by ensuring that the people who contribute their land, resources, labour and knowledge to tourism are the ones who reap the benefits. Travellers can also book a fully certified Fair Trade Holiday. A Fair Trade Holiday is developed by tour operators committed to sustainability and Fair Trade; benefit workers and owners of tourism businesses by requiring long-term trading relationships, full prepayment and binding cancellation agreements; and a set contribution is paid to the Fair Trade Tourism Development Fund. Thokozile Qoboza, Marketing Manager, Fair Trade Tourism speaks to NomadTV on this subject.
