The Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) has applied for and been granted access to utilise the World Travel & Tourism Council's (WTTC) recently released "Safe Travel Stamp".

"Our application has now been approved based on our members implementation of enhanced health and safety measures, in line with the WTTC global Safe Travels protocols," said CATO Managing Director, Brett Jardine.

WTTC's global Safe Travels protocols were developed to optimise sector-wide recovery efforts by rebuilding confidence among travellers and ensuring a coordinated approach of the global Travel & Tourism public and private sectors.

WTTC has created and offers the protocols in good faith for use by organisations as they seek to re-open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CATO Members use of the Safe Travel Stamp is approved based on your acknowledgement and agreement that:

  • You are committed to the CATO COVID Safe Travel Protocols.
  • Your use of the protocols is entirely voluntary and that WTTC assumes no liability for your use of the protocols.
  • You are solely responsible for deciding whether compliance with, and implementation of, the protocols is suitable for you and lawful in the jurisdiction in which you operate.
  • The protocols have not been approved or accredited by any governmental or regulatory body and serve as a set of ‘best practices’ guidelines only, and that by offering the protocols for use by Organisations, WTTC is not providing an official certification or accreditation system.
  • Use of the protocols will be entirely at your own risk.
