Here is the most sustainable green digital travel solution
The Travel Corporation is sowing the seeds for more sustainable travel by launching a digital travel solution which will see guests saving trees and time with “The My Digital Travel Portal”!
Leading family-owned travel group, The Travel Corporation (TTC) who offers transformative travel experiences is continuing to share its passion for the planet. In light of the announcement of their partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation they are encouraging all of their travellers to switch to e documents. With this TTC is pledging to reforest several hundred acres in recognition of all paper documentation spared.
Enabling its travellers to save both time and trees whilst planning and enjoying a hard-earned holiday, TTC has created a digital travel solution for guests to access all travel materials, including trip itineraries at My Travel Portal (MTP).
The My Digital Travel Portal (MTP) will house everything travellers need to know before, during and after their trip. They can chat online with their Travel Director, make friends with co-travellers before leaving South Africa and of course in this day and age of Social Media share their trip (pics and all) with their friends and family.
Commenting on the MTP launch, Theresa Szejwallo, TTC Managing Director for South Africa, “In a world where connectivity is the new normal, we are delighted to offer our guests an end to end travel solution from booking to post-trip, that will serve them well at every touchpoint. We are also taking the personalisation of travel to a new level. In creating the portal, we believe that we have devised a good blend of both and are excited to kick off 2018 by delivering this to guests travelling with Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki, Luxury Gold and CostSaver, with more brands to follow soon.”
By opting for e-documents guests are saving the planet one tree at a time. For every set of travel documents they don’t have to print, they pledge to plant a tree through One Tree Planted on behalf of their guests.
Created in response to guest desires to be able to easily access itineraries and other details when on the road, MTP also houses information on personal preferences and any particular passion points, thereby tailoring travels as well as making the entire experience effortless.
Sustainable green digital travel solution:
The initiative is supported by environmentalist and TreadRight Ambassador Celine Cousteau (documentary film director and producer) who has recorded us a video message of thanks for guests selecting the tree-saving e docs option for their travels with TTC.
The Travel Corporation multi award-winning portfolio ranges from luxury hotels and boutique river cruises, to independent holiday package companies and a variety of guided travel experiences. There is something for everyone, solo, couples and groups!
