Responsible Traveler

Are you a Responsible Traveler?
Ensure Tourism Leaves a Positive Impact
How can we be responsible travelers and changemakers?
  • Choose travel companies that are already involved:
    Check their websites for their policies against human trafficking. There are already hotels committed to protecting children and training their employees. Many hotel chains, management companies, and properties are members of ECPAT’s Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct. The Code requires members to train their employees on how to identify and report cases of trafficking. Click here for a full list of members.
  • Use your purchasing power while traveling can make all the difference:
    If your hotel has not signed The Code, use this letter to ask them to join.
  • Know the signs and report trafficking:
    Save our ECPAT-USA Travel Indicators on your phone or computer for easy reference when traveling. If you see something suspicious, make a report to hotel management or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Call Center: 1-800-THE-LOST.
