We want to banish for ever the words
  “I’ve never been on holiday”

The aim of Holidays Matter is to help as many people as possible benefit from a break.

Become a member of the Holidays Matter network. The benefits are numerous:

  • add your voice to the movement and be heard
  • use the Holidays Matter logo to show your commitment to social tourism
  • make contact with organisations that share your values
  • be the first to hear about new developments
  • enjoy the chance to be part of Holidays Matter-related publicity
  • actively make a difference – in a large, powerful framework
  • it’s free to sign up

Be part of a movement actively helping to change the lives of people in hardship.

To join the network you must be actively engaged in social tourism (or plan to get involved), either by making it easier for people most in need to take part or by raising awareness of the social and economic benefits of social tourism. Whether a charity, travel and tourism business, researcher or tourism body – anyone making a difference in this field can join up today.

Network members must be able to show how they are actively supporting social tourism in at least one of the following ways:

  • by providing free or discounted activities, such as holidays or tickets to attractions, targeted at people most in need
  • by supporting disadvantaged individuals and families to access day trips, short breaks or holidays
  • by organising an initiative which increases participation in tourism by those who couldn’t normally take part
  • by acting as advocates of the cause, promoting and spreading the idea with relevant stakeholders, policy makers, and the public, helping to enact measurable change
  • by contributing to research showing the impact of social tourism
