How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

The travel agencies play an important role in tourism development. Tourism has been growing gradually in Armenia since 2000. The Republic of Armenia Ministry of Economy declared that 575,281 tourists visited Armenia in 2009, 3% more than the estimated index for 2008, and 5% growth was predicted for 2010 as the world economy stabilizes. In 2011, Armenia expected to receive 800,000 tourists, which is 13% better than the previous year. Armenia has a beautiful landscapes , abundant nature and traditional cuisine as well as Hospitable human factor which is very important . This is the reason why tourists coming to our country. Armenia provides the opportunity of cultural, pilgrimage as well as culinary and student tour. We are trying to involve students as well as locals to help them with seminars and trainings for us to give the opportunity to have an additional source of income ,additional employment and to help to escape their productivity.

Based on our policy we usually use the local suppliers in terms of nurishment and accommodation. Sometimes it can be a local house where guests can be accommodated, here they can participate in cooking or preparing different traditional dishes. The reasons we prefer this kind of tourism are that the food is organic, the people are more friendly, the relationship is friendly and in result travelers discover the real spirit of the country and the people living in.

During our tours we always try to involve as more local people (local experts) as it is possible since locals know their homelands better than anyone else. . For instance when guiding our group to different regions we always invite an experienced guide who should be a local who knows the surrounding, knows some more than literally written in the guide books and simply knows more than the guide accompanying the group throughout the whole period. This is always in addition to the professional guide service. They do never controvert each others but they fill the each others. Sometimes they invite the group to their houses, offer them some homemade wine or other stuff.

Environmental responsibility

Our team is endorsing the environmental policy but not always one person is responsible for the one thing directly . We do have several persons who really can communicate on that policy and type of organization. We identify wasteful and harmful current practices with different points of you. We are putting posters to remind people to turn on the lights off when they have empty room. In some cases we are trying to persuade the building manager to implement energy saving measures. Using low energy light bulbs . We encourage out team to walk, to use cycle wherever is possible. Our team is aimed to buy the products which are not over packaged , print all documents double sided, and buy local products that are environmentally friendly and from sustainable sources.

Understanding the importance of environmental cleanings TravelArmenia is always trying to avoid any kind of actions which can potentially harm or pollute the environment. Unfortunately the infrastructure of protecting the surrounding environment is not that much developed in Armenia but as far as it is possible it is a part of our corporate policy.
Below are a few examples how we encourage our travelers to minimise damage to the environment, wildlife.
- When hosting FITs we always use hybrid cars to minimize the pollution.
- When meeting the guests we always provide them with the tour package, map and the schedule of the tour. It is extremely important for us to provide them with recycled papers.
- When offering some juice or water, they will always get paper packed ones.
- We never operate any transport on Gas.
