Regenerative Travel introduces the Agency of Change Trade Program for values-aligned agents

Regenerative Travel revolutionizes the travel industry as a thriving association and marketplace, uniting stakeholders for collective impact.

NEW YORK – Regenerative Travel announce its position as an association and marketplace with a commitment to uniting all crucial stakeholders in the travel industry under a single umbrella, empowering change makers to collectively make a profound impact.

“Over the past four years, Regenerative Travel has taken the lead in propelling the industry towards a regenerative future. Our initial mission was to facilitate the discovery of environmentally and socially impactful hotels for travelers, however, we have now embarked on a transformative journey, evolving into a thriving association and marketplace,” says Amanda Ho, Co-Founder & CEO of Regenerative Travel.

The Agency of Change Trade Program: Empowering Values-Aligned Agents

In line with their mission, Regenerative Travel introduces the Agency of Change Trade Program, empowering values-aligned travel agents to promote regenerative travel and become stewards of change. Through this program, agents can drive business growth and generate heightened interest in member hotels, forging valuable relationships between agents and hotels.

The program offers diversified tiering options, allowing trade partners to prioritize their specific needs. Agents can now choose between more individual agent seats or a stronger emphasis on showcasing their unique itineraries, with the required annual spend based on annual turnover.

By offering this flexibility, Regenerative Travel aims to cater to the diverse needs of their trade partners. Whether agents wish to include more travel designers or display a wider range of curated itineraries, the updated membership program empowers trade partners to amplify their representation within the Regenerative Travel community, enhancing their visibility and impact within the industry.
