Regenerative Travel’s Trade Program will recognize trailblazing travel agencies offering the highest level of regenerative experiences to clients.

NEW YORK – Regenerative Travel, a benefit corporation and a collection of independent hotels and lodges committed to regenerative hospitality has launched its Agency of Change Trade Program. The program offers membership to values-aligned travel agents to help them bring regenerative travel experiences to their clients, thus making them stewards of change in the travel industry.

Membership offers travel agents a range of benefits including Regenerative Resources, monthly online educational webinars, monthly agent programming and virtual product showcases. It also grants access to a community forum of engaged conscious consumers that align with the Regenerative Travel ethos. The Program also offers travel agents competitive commission rates as well as exclusive membership perks available at Regenerative Hotels around the world.

Regenerative Travel will initially offer membership to only 50 agencies under the prestigious ‘Agency of Change’ label in 2023 to ensure the highest level of commitment and service to regenerative practices in their product offerings. There will be a database including agency names and profiles listed on the Regenerative Travel website with details of country specialists to inform consumers and allow them to contact travel agents with offerings relevant to their travel plans.

“We’re extremely excited to launch our highly anticipated Agency of Change Program. We are aware that for the entire travel industry to make the paradigm shift toward regeneration, every member and stakeholder within travel needs to be involved. By working together with travel agents, we hope to highlight the pioneers offering the most sought-after and positively impactful regenerative travel experiences for travelers. Changing the travel industry for the better will require collaboration across all stakeholders, especially as solutions are not always straightforward and require the integration of various perspectives. We are keen to join other Agencies of Change and Regenerative Travel members in exploring and paving the path forward,” says Amanda Ho, Co-Founder and CEO of Regenerative Travel.
