The tourism accreditation process improves the quality of tourism businesses and industry standards.

It assures visitors and the tourism industry that you are a professional tourism business that is committed to delivering quality through your business practices, procedures and standards.

In the process of becoming accredited, tourism businesses will undergo a range of checks on things like licenses, customer service standards, risk management procedures and general maintenance.

The benefits to becoming an accredited tourism operator are:

  • improved profitability thanks to better procedures and systems
