Set up in 1989 Tourism Concern is a unique independent charity dedicated to campaigning for ethical and fairly traded tourism. We are largely funded by individuals who are often keen travellers themselves and who want their holidays to be as good for the people they visit as for themselves.

By becoming a Member and joining our Campaign for Better Tourism you are helping us to:

  • Improve working conditions for tourism workers
  • Lobby UK tour operators to be more socially responsible
  • Develop guidelines for best practice
  • Give a voice to local communities threatened by exploitative tourism development.

Support from our Members enables us to run our campaigns, however as a member you will also join a global network of ethical travellers and professionals; get invited to events organised by us or other partners; and have access to complimentary copies of all our reports. In our dedicated Members’ Area you  can connect with other Members, discuss issues and  give feedback on our partners.

Members are also entitled to free or discounted entry to our conferences and seminars as well as access to discounts and exclusive benefits with  partners listed in the online Ethical Travel Guide.

The easiest way to join (and get immediate access) is by signing up below. Alternatively if you prefer to pay monthly you can set up a direct debit online.
