Safe Travels Stamp – World Travel and Tourism Council

Watch the Building Consumer Confidence with POST Promise & Safe Travels Online Pre-recorded Workshop


The WTTC aims to support the travel and tourism sector in their recovery process by developing meaningful action plans that enhance recovery efforts, while also providing both the public and private sectors with the insights and toolkits for interaction and implementation. As the travel and tourism sector recovers, the WTTC advocates for implementing the right policies that will help support the demand and recovery for this amazing sector. They try to rebuild trust and confidence with those that travel by effectively communicating with them while assuring them that they will be kept safe.

Benefits and Resources

Alongside the WTTC, TIAO (Tourism Industry Association of Ontario) has created a self-certified “Safe-Travels Stamp” (which can be seen on the right). This stamp allows travellers to recognize the companies and governments from around the world that have adopted health and hygiene global standardized protocols. TIAO asks that destinations that are looking to apply for this stamp also use the POST promise.

P.O.S.T. Promise

What is it?

The POST Promise is a training & education platform that results in a voluntary declaration from a business to its customers and employees. It’s a simple and easy way to show that a business is taking steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What it is not?

The POST Promise is NOT a “certification” or “approval” from any regulatory body. All businesses are still required to follow the laws and recommended guidelines from their local public health officials and government bodies.

It is for the common good?

The POST Promise is designed for businesses to train and educate their employees about the requirements of the platform, and to help consumers feel confident that a business is doing their part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Participating businesses will be provided with the POST Promise logo which is a clear way to show that they’re taking necessary precautions. The more businesses and workplaces that adopt the use of the POST Promise logo, the more recognizable it will become to the general public, thus increasing consumer confidence.
