‘Safe Travels’: Global Protocols & Stamp for the New Normal

WTTC alongside their Members – governments, health experts and other industry associations – are working together to achieve effective recovery protocols by developing meaningful action plans that optimize sector-wide recovery efforts.

Part of their protocols include providing the public & private sectors with the insights & toolkits for interaction & implementation to ensure that people are and feel safe however WTTC, members and the sector can not guarantee 100% safety. It is paramount to have common rules. Ultimately, WTTC envisions a future of travel which is safe, secure, seamless and provides an authentic and meaningful experience to the traveller across the journey; one which supports the livelihoods of millions and contributes to sustainable economic growth.

We will be publishing the protocols in phases and for at least eleven industries, including; Hospitality, Attractions, Outdoor Retail, Aviation, Airports, Short Term Rentals, Cruise, Tour Operators, Convention Centres and MICE, Car Rental and Insurance.

The protocols align the private sector behind common standards to ensure the safety of its workforce and travellers as the sector shifts to a new normal.

While the protocols take into account current WHO and CDC guidelines, they are living documents which the WTTC will update as new information becomes available about COVID-19.
