Welcome to Make Holidays Greener

Make Holidays Greener is ABTA’s annual campaign in partnership with Travelife for Hotels & Accommodations to encourage us all to take positive social and environmental actions whilst on holiday, which will not only contribute to you having a great holiday, but also help to ensure your chosen destination is preserved for years to come.

Make a Greener Holiday pledge

We know your holiday is probably one of the most important dates in your calendar each year, and we would like you to consider a simple pledge that will be easy to achieve as well as give you a sense of pride to make your holiday that little bit greener.

Choose one or more of the 15 green holiday pledges below or design your own and enter a prize draw to win a Go Pro camera. Every pledge will give you a separate entry to the prize draw, so you can make multiple pledges. Every pledge counts and will not only make your next holiday even greener but also increase your chance of winning!

Submit your pledge before you go on holiday, and the end of August, this is when the prize draw closes.

Contact sustainabletourism@abta.co.uk with any queries.
