Agents can book via the Responsible Travel website and on-the-phone assistance from the company’s travel advisers is also available.

Responsible Travel is so far working with 75 partners and offers agents 10% commission.

Tim Williamson, director of customer services, said: “This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary – a fitting time to launch our travel agent collection.

“For 20 years we’ve been pioneers in responsible tourism, offering inspiring holidays that are better for customers; and for the planet and local communities too.

“Now we’re excited to be able to offer a large and unique, dedicated collection of holidays to travel agents. We know that more and more agents are asked about planet-friendly travel options and this collection has a vast range of community-focussed, nature-friendly holidays to choose from. We look forward to working with agents and together, making a difference to the future of travel and tourism.”

The operator’s trips are aimed at active travellers wanting to support communities and preserve nature, “bringing them closer to both”.

Sub-categories within the holidays collection include: active; adventure; accommodation only; cruises; cultural; cycling; volunteering; walking; wellness; wildlife and winter holidays.
