What is Responsible Travel?

The world is waking up to the need for more sustainable ways of travelling, and here at the APT Travel Group (ATG) we understand we have a responsibility to our planet. Responsible travel is all about being socially and culturally aware, minimising our environmental footprint and travelling in a way that takes into consideration the locals, environment and individual cultures. We encourage this sustainable way of travel through journeys with the ATG companies of APT, Travelmarvel, TravelGlo, Captain’s Choice and Botanica World Discoveries.

Our Vision

Our vision of conscientious travel involves protecting the environment, respecting local communities and ensuring the wellbeing of the individuals within those communities. 


We aim to achieve this by embracing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to make a more powerful impact, we have chosen to focus on the following SDGs: Good Health and Wellbeing, Quality Education and Life on the Land.
