Six steps to better business

Follow these six steps to Travelife ChainConnect Gold Certification and create a better place to work, live and visit. 

"Despite already having ISO 14001 since 2014, Travelife has helped us to develop other aspects such as helping the local population, non-profit entities, positive reinforcement to our employees, respect, animal welfare and so on."

Be Live Hotels

Step 1

Subscribe to our ChainConnect programme

Click here to join now and gain access to our exclusive Travelife HQ Member Zone where you will find everything you need to get started.  Don't worry if you are just starting out, we find that properties are often further ahead than they realise.

Step 2

Assess where you are at and plan improvements

In the Member Zone you will find your HQ Travelife Checklist for you to prepare towards the Documents Check meeting and the checklist for individual properties.  You can use this to assess what you are already doing well and where you need to make improvements.  There is advice on how you can plan the improvements you will need to make before your HQ visit to check the documents and later for the individual audits.  Click here to view the Travelife Checklists.

Step 3

Prepare for your HQ visit and audits

Use the Member Guides, examples and templates in the Member Zone to make your improvements.

Step 4

Schedule your HQ document check and hotel audits

Work with Travelife to confirm a date for the document visit at the chain Headquarter. Then you will need to work with your hotels to find dates for the hotels audit and organised the audits clustered by areas. These dates will be communicated to the auditor by the chain so they can agree which dates are more suitable for both sides. If the auditor cannot find evidence that you have met the Travelife Standard, our team will work with you on the improvements you need to make before you can be certified.  Click here to learn more about how the certification process works.

Step 5

Celebrate and promote your certification

You will be given the Travelife Gold Certification logo to display on your promotional materials, a certificate and window decal stickers.  You will be listed on the Travelife Collection  website so travellers can find you and we will update our Member tour operators about your certification.

Step 6

Maintain your status and aim for excellence

Your certification is valid for two years provided you maintain compliance with the Travelife Standard.  During that time you will have full access to the Member Zone to help you maintain your status and we will send you regular updates containing news, tips and advice that are especially tailored for accommodation providers.

You will be invited to share your success stories for our social media posts, to participate in research programs and competitions that showcase your achievements.  We will remind you when your Membership and Certification needs to be renewed.
